DefConNews: Democrats claim to be the party of science but, like all the rest of their claims, it’s a lie. They are the party of cherry-picking data that supports their agenda, while ignoring everything else that blows them out of the water. A new study shows beyond any doubt that gun control doesn’t do squat to reduce crime.
Massachusetts was one of the many liberals states that passed knee-jerk gun control legislation following the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting. The democrats who rammed these gun control laws through promised they would reduce crime and make everyone safer. We know those were lies and now there’s solid science to prove it.
The Boston Herald reports:
A new study from American University found that the tightened gun-control measures that went into effect in Massachusetts six years ago had little effect on the violent crime rate in the state…
The study, published in Justice Quarterly, used modeling and FBI data from 2006 to 2016 to examine the impact of the 2015 gun law on crimes including murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault.
The study’s author, Janice Iwama, assistant professor of justice, law, and criminology at American University, found that armed robberies increased 8.9% in Massachusetts since the new gun laws were enacted. more
