Confirmation from the Washington Post- Gun Control Doesn’t Work

October 7, 2015

I posted an article about gun control and violent crime.  I said there was no correlation between the rate of violent crime and state laws restricting gun ownership.   That article came out on October 4th.

On October 6th, Professor Eugene Volokh wrote that there is “Zero Correlation Between State Homicide Rate and State Gun Laws”.  He writes in the Washington Post.

He concludes,

“But since people have been talking about simple two-variable correlations between gun laws and crime, I thought it would be helpful to note this correlation — or, rather, absence of correlation.”

Professor Volokh has an interesting article for those of us who want to know the facts.  It isn’t like gun control is a new idea that hasn’t been tried.. and failed.volokh
