More Guns Does Not Mean More Murders

According to proponents of gun control, more guns in America equals more murders and a more lawless society. Every time there is a mass killing involving guns, liberal politicians rush to call for more restrictions on guns.

Those in favor of disarming the citizenry claim that fewer guns will mean less gun crime. This assertion is not based on facts, as can be seen in the chart below. Not only is there no correlation between increases in gun ownership and homicides, but the relationship in fact is negative.
