ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the link between firearms and violent crime. Assaults, robberies and rape had increased in Australia following the implementation of gun control. There is a 30% decrease in reported rapes in the U.S. in the mid 1990s due to the reintroduction of the right to carry guns. According to researchers, the community and the armed citizen enjoy the benefit of reduced crime from gun use.
