13. Australian gun numbers are back up to pre-ban levels

A US gun control panel is set to deliver its recommendations on Tuesday, with contributions from an Australian gun control expert. Professor Philip Alpers says despite Australia’s success story on gun ownership, levels have returned to those before the Port Arthur massacre.

At that time, more than a million guns were sent to the smelter.

“Over the last 10 years, the importation of fire arms has built up again, and now I know from customs figures that we have already replaced a million guns in Australia."

So has Australia's murder rate increased? It must have if gun numbers increased.
