Atlantic Wire :: What Research Can Tell Us About the Newtown Shootings

Strict gun control laws absolutely have led to fewer deaths in other countries. Researchers under the supervision of Joan Ozanne-Smith of Monash University studied firearm-related deaths over a 22-year period in Australia, finding a notable drop in deaths (especially suicides) after the country implemented strict gun control laws in the late '80s and mid-'90s. The Medical University of Vienna's Nestor D. Kapusta and colleagues noticed similar trends when Austria got tough on gun control in 1997. A number of variables make the U.S. different than these nationsóbut in Austria and Australia, research shows that deaths have been prevented by gun control.
