A pile of prohibited firearms that were handed in under the Australian government's buyback scheme, July Estimates suggest that there are more than 12 firearms for every ten civilians in the country, making U. The United States also has high rates of violence. According to a study by Erin Grinshteyn and David Hemenway, homicide rates are six times higher in the United States than in most other developed countries, and firearm homicides account for much of this difference. Grinshteyn and Hemenway also found that, although the United States does not have higher-than-average suicide rates, U. In addition, unintentional firearm deaths are more than six times more common in the United States than in comparison countries.
Gun-related violence is violence committed with the use of a gun firearm or small arm. Gun-related violence may or may not be considered criminal. Criminal violence includes homicide except when and where ruled justifiable , assault with a deadly weapon , and suicide , or attempted suicide , depending on jurisdiction. Non-criminal violence includes accidental or unintentional injury and death except perhaps in cases of criminal negligence. Also generally included in gun violence statistics are military or para-military activities.
What effects do gun control restrictions and gun prevalence have on rates of violence and crime? Data were gathered for all U. The cities were coded for the presence of 19 major categories of firearms restriction, including both state- and city-level restrictions. Multiple indirect indicators of gun prevalence levels were measured and models of city violence rates were estimated using two-stage least-squares methods. The models covered all major categories of intentional violence and crime which frequently involve guns: homicide, suicide, fatal gun accidents, robbery, and aggravated assaults, as well as rape. Findings indicate that 1 gun prevalence levels generally have no net positive effect on total violence rates, 2 homicide, gun assault, and rape rates increase gun prevalence, 3 gun control restrictions have no net effect on gun prevalence levels, and 4 most gun control restrictions generally have no net effect on violence rates.
Siegel obtained and analyzed the data. All authors conceptualized and designed the study, interpreted the results, wrote the article, and critically reviewed and commented on the article. We examined the relationship between levels of household firearm ownership, as measured directly and by a proxy—the percentage of suicides committed with a firearm—and age-adjusted firearm homicide rates at the state level. We determined fixed effects for year, accounted for clustering within states with generalized estimating equations, and controlled for potential state-level confounders. This model indicated that for each percentage point increase in gun ownership, the firearm homicide rate increased by 0. We observed a robust correlation between higher levels of gun ownership and higher firearm homicide rates.
Findings indicate that (1) gun prevalence levels generally have no net positive effect on total violence rates, (2) homicide, gun assault, and rape rates increase gun prevalence, (3) gun control restrictions have no net effect on gun prevalence levels, and (4) most gun control restrictions generally have no net effect.
The debate over gun control in the United States has waxed and waned over the years, stirred by a series of mass shootings by gunmen in civilian settings.
