A gun report ordered in by Obama has ended up highlighting the fact that legal guns are actually saving lives and diffusing crime. Woops!

In a recent study orchestrated by the CDC and carried out by the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council, it was found that individuals involved in violent crimes who defended themselves using techniques other than carrying a gun were more likely to be injured when compared to those who were carrying a concealed firearm.

All-in-all, the Obama ordered report ended up finding more pros than cons in regards to the right to an open or concealed weapon. The report also reminds us of the numerous causes of gun deaths, citing that most gun deaths are at the hands of those who used a gun for their suicide — not homicide. The report highlights the poor state of America’s suffering mental health. The report states that suicide by guns outweighs the amount of deaths caused by violent crimes by 61%.

I recently conducted an interview with Representative Joe Carr from Tennessee on this very issue:

The study then goes on to detail the prevalence of self-defense with a firearm, revealing that:

“Defensive use of guns by crime victims is a common occurrence [...]. Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.”

The study also mentions mass shootings, and how these scenarios are the least common shootings of allThe study cites that since 1983, there have been approximately 547 victims and 476 injuries of mass shootings. To put that into perspective, thousands are killed each year from bats and human hands as Anthony Gucciardi has detailed in the mega article ‘A Brief And Bloody History of Gun Control‘.

In closing, this report is a perfect example of the facts outweighing both rumor and engineered public perception. The Second Amendment allows for enhanced self-defense, and most importantly allows law-abiding citizens to defend themselves from criminals.

  3. NoSSRIs says:

    Too bad the CDC didn't have the integrity to point out that harmaceutical use, especially SSRIs, is implicated in nearly every mass shooting and most attempted suicides since the early 1980's.

    The CDC report is only citing conclusions from an outdated report (Kleck, 1988; Kleck and DeLone, 1993; Southwick, 2000; Tark and Kleck, 2004) as a basis for needing a more current detailed report.

  8. I think it is absolutely true in a self defensive mood that guns and armors can save a person life and also prevent happening a violent crime in the city. It decreases the level of crime rate with peace and safety for people.

    Their efforts to remove arms from the public should really get people thinking. The government does not want you to know guns save lives because it is not their lives they will save, it is our lives they will save.biology coursework writing
