14. People who commit traditional violent crime appear to be different than mass murderers.

 

Proposals that would ban guns under the belief guns create crime ignore the latest government report.

"Gun Control Legislation by CRS (Nov 14, 2012) reports

- from 1994 to 2007, firearm number increased from 192 million to 294 million.

- from 1994 to 2007, Firearms-Related Murder Rate decreased from 6.6 to 3.9.

Until that report is refuted, laws to prevent mass-murder should focus on the person and not banning the firearm.
