This is counterintuitive. One would think that the presence of more guns would in tease crime, but statistics have shown over and over that firearms in the hands of honest citizens decrease crime. From the link:

"That is fact that has been statistically demonstrated by John Lott’s pathbreaking book, More Guns, Less Crime, a rick-solid statistical analysis showing that when states pass “shall issue” concealed carry laws, crime goes down. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors should take note."

I have credibility issues with the organization you're citing from. While their "About" page is explicitly neutral (and that's genuinely admirable) every other inch of the webpage is taken up by mainstream conservative talking points. The books they want you to buy are: The War on Guns, More Guns Less Crime, The Bias Against Guns etc.

Their website seems determined to make the case that Europe suffers an equal share of gun violence with things like:

>UPDATE: CPRC Original Research: Of cases of at least 15 murders, all but two of the 25 worst mass public shootings, 59 of the worst 66, occurred outside the United States

>UPDATED: Comparing Death Rates from Mass Public Shootings and Mass Public Violence in the US and Europe

It really wants to hold up stats like Finland's one mass shooting to create their higher murder rate per million than the US, while trying to downplay more obvious facts like America's 350+ mass shootings last year alone. Also, if you go by CPRC's numbers, they estimate American mass shootings at a much more conservative 3 per year. Like they've only recorded 54 mass shootings since 1998.

Seriously. Check it out for yourself below or maybe click here if you don't want random files on your computer.

Do you see a pattern?

There seems to be a conscious effort to present a false consensus on gun violence. I don't know what the truth is but it's a lot more mixed opinion than this.

I recently read John Lott's "The War On Guns" and it was rife with stats, graphs, etc. that are useful in this discussion as well. He also cites all the data profusely.
