Many gun control activists here in the United States point to Australia as an example of why they want a ban of most guns. They try to convince us that since Australia banned the private ownership of most guns in 1996, that it has made the country safer with fewer homicides and rare mass shootings.
They fail to mention that after the gun ban went into effect and the government spent over $500 million buying back guns that crime rates throughout the country soared, especially armed robberies (up 69%) and home invasions (up 21%).
