Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  As scholarly studies and international violent crime stats mount to show no correlation between gun control and less violent crime, gun control proponents ignore the science and continue pushing more gun control and more gun bans.

Are gun control proponents flat-earthers?

After all, just as flat-earthers ignored the discovery that the earth was round and continued to make explorers fear there was a point where they would fall off the edge of the world if they went too far in one direction or another, gun control proponents ignore the science seen through scholarship and claim gun control is the answer when in fact, it has been proven part of the problem.

Consider the study that examined gun ownership and gun crime internationally in Harvard's Journal of Law and Public Policy. As Breitbart News reported on August 28, the study showed that with a handgun ban and long gun ownership at a lowly 4,000 per 100,000 inhabitants, Russia's murder rate among Eastern European nations was 20.54. In contrast, with no handgun ban and over 39,000 guns per 100,000 inhabitants, Finland's murder rate was only 1.98.

Finland had nearly ten times the guns yet less than 1/10 the crime as Russia.

Moreover, this study examines Canadian and British gun bans and shows that the gun control mantra–“more guns equal more death and fewer guns equal fewer deaths”–is not true in Canada or Britain, “[where the areas] with the highest rates of gun ownership were in fact those with the lowest rates of violence.” The same trend was true in the United States.

Will this matter to Piers Morgan, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), Colorado's Democrat legislators, or President Obama, all proponents of infringing the Second Amendment? No, science does not matter when the earth is flat.

    1. I cant ever remember a time in history where we need our weapons more than we do right now ! Nobody will ever confiscate our weapons or disarm us,…it will just never f*cking happen ! TEX

    2. No , they are just a bunch of sick America haters that want to see us controlled like the Soviet Union was before Reagan screwed them all up .

    3. In fairness to The Flat Earth Society, they mostly play it up for the yukks. They don’t actually believe the Earth is flat, but it’s fun to hold a symposium on “The Dangers Of Sailing Too Close To The Edge”.

      The anti-gun crowd, on the other hand, may or may not know the facts; they just want their way.

      I feel much more empowered against criminals with a weapon in my pants and in my house. If these people stick flowers in criminal’s guns, when they invade their homes, they are going to get their flat head brains blown out!
