Non-correlation Between Gun Laws & Murder Rate

Not surprisingly, yet another analysis shows that there’s very little overlap between strong gun control laws and the murder rate. For people who call themselves rationalists, I’m surprised how often they think banning guns is the answer.

I firmly believe, myself, that if it weren’t for the obscene way we fight the drug war, our murder rate would be much lower. The real problem is gang violence and the underground drug culture. Radical crazy belief I got there, right?
