And this is from Harvard, where plenty of anti-gun/pro-gun control studies have originated. From Breitbart:
A Harvard Study titled “Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” looks at figures for “intentional deaths” throughout continental Europe and juxtaposes them with the U.S. to show that more gun control does not necessarily lead to lower death rates or violent crime.
Because the findings so clearly demonstrate that more gun laws may in fact increase death rates, the study says that “the mantra that more guns mean more deaths and that fewer guns, therefore, mean fewer deaths” is wrong.

By the way, many anti-gunners point to gun crime and murder rates in other countries and say, “See! They don’t have the proliferation of guns that the United States does and they have less crime.” Yes, but they’ve always had less crime. Much less crime. And it was that way long before many of them enacted draconian gun control laws or gun confiscations. The actual fact is that for many of those countries, armed crime is rising even though legal gun ownership has fallen because of government confiscations.
