3 decades of data show clearly: When gun ownership falls, the chances of getting killed by a gun falls

The NRA gets it half right. Guns don’t kill people.

They just forgot this part: Gun owners kill people.

It’s what more than 3 decades of data clearly show.

As gun ownership in the United States fell by 33% between 1980 and 2014, the gun death rate fell by 30%.

That’s a nearly perfect 1-to-1 relationship.

Frankly, it defies reason to believe that it’s purely correlative, not causal.

Logically–like completely logically–when more Americans have guns, more get killed by guns; when fewer Americans have guns, fewer get killed by guns.

Don’t overthink it.
