Pandemic gun violence surge was not linked to rise in gun sales, study finds
by Guardian, via GunPolicy.org on July 9, 2021 at 12:00 am
Gun homicides surged across the United States during the coronavirus pandemic, in the same year that Americans bought a record-breaking number of guns. But some of America's leading gun violence researchers have concluded that what might seem like an obvious cause-and-effect – a surge in gun buying leads to a surge in gun violence – is not supported by the data. Through July of last year, there was no clear association between the increase in firearm purchases and... [Guardian, via GunPolicy.org]
How Bad is the Rise in US Homicides?
by Guardian, via GunPolicy.org on June 30, 2021 at 12:00 am
There's been a wave of media coverage this summer about an increase in homicides across the United States, with attention often focused on the same political question: will Americans still want to defund or even reform the police if "violent crime" is on the rise? Anxiety about violent crime is often used to win elections. Police and politicians routinely share misleading, out-of-context crime statistics to advance their agendas. Fearmongering about rising crime has... [Guardian, via GunPolicy.org]
More Guns at the Root of 2020 Murder Increase in US
by Vox, via GunPolicy.org on June 12, 2021 at 12:00 am
The year 2020 saw the largest recorded increase in homicides in United States history — an increase likely propelled by a complex mix of factors, from more guns to stresses of the pandemic to fewer police officers on the streets to a crisis in relations between police and citizens. But one persistent theory is that a change in policing last summer primarily drove increased gun violence. This is an especially popular explanation among law enforcement figures. Former...

What the Overturning of California's Assault Weapons Ban Means for America
by Guardian, via GunPolicy.org on June 8, 2021 at 12:00 am
In a polarizing decision on Friday night, a federal judge struck down California's 32-year-old ban on assault weapons, ruling that it violated Americans' constitutional right to own guns for self protection. In the 94-page decision, Judge Roger Benitez compared an AR-15 rifle to a "Swiss army knife" and falsely claimed that more Californians had died from the Covid-19 vaccine than from mass shootings.

The Deadly Toll of California's Craft Weapons

When Brian Muhammad, a program manager at a gun violence prevention group in California, asked a 16-year-old boy in 2018 how young people were getting guns, he assumed the answer would be Nevada, the neighboring state with looser gun laws. "Who would waste time going to Nevada when you can just get them in the mail and put it together?" the Stockton teen nonchalantly replied. Three years later, homemade weapons known as "ghost guns" have risen to the top of the Biden... [Guardian, via GunPolicy.org]

California Lawmakers Seek to Force Gunmakers to 'Microstamp' Bullet Casings
by Guardian, via GunPolicy.org on March 23, 2021 at 12:00 am
Gun control advocates are making a new attempt to force the gun industry to comply with a unique California law that requires bullet casings to be "microstamped", a measure that has been toothless since it was approved more than a decade ago. California's 2007 law requires gun manufacturers to adopt microstamping technology on new types of handguns introduced in the state. The intent was to imprint a unique set of microscopic characters on all cartridge casings when... [Guardian, via GunPolicy.org]

For gun-safety activists or everyday Massachusetts citizens concerned about gun violence, it doesn't get much better than this.

Americans Have Bought Record 17m Guns in Year of Unrest
by Guardian, via GunPolicy.org on October 30, 2020 at 12:00 am
Americans have bought nearly 17m guns so far in 2020, more than in any other single year, according to estimates from a firearms analytics company. Gun sales across the United States first jumped in the spring, driven by fears about the coronavirus pandemic, and spiked even higher in the summer, during massive racial justice protests across the country, prompted by police killings of black Americans. "By August, we had exceeded last year's total. By September, we... [Guardian, via GunPolicy.org]

Several decades — and one notorious crime bill — later, he's pushing the most expansive reform platform in history.

More Than 100,000 Californians Have Bought A Gun In Response To Covid-19 Crisis, Report Finds

More than a hundred thousand Californians have bought a gun since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, a new report has found, in a surge of gun sales that has experts worried about the risk of suicide and deadly instances of domestic violence. Researchers at the University of California, Davis, found that 110,000 people in California purchased a firearm in direct response to the coronavirus. About 47,000 of the buyers were first-time gun owners. Buyers cited... [Guardian, via GunPolicy.org]
Gun Trafficking from US to UK Increasing

Canada Bans Civilian Ownership of Assault Weapons After Mass Shooting

Nearly two weeks after the deadliest mass shooting in Canada's history, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday introduced an immediate ban on what he described as "military-style assault weapons." "These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time," Mr. Trudeau said. "There is no use and no place for such weapons in Canada." The ban means that Canadians will no longer be able to own... [New York Times, via GunPolicy.org]
Pandemic Fears Cause Spike in U.S. Gun Sales

Americans bought about two million guns in March, according to a New York Times analysis of federal data. It was the second-busiest month ever for gun sales, trailing only January 2013, just after President Barack Obama's re-election and the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. With some people fearful that the pandemic could lead to civil unrest, gun sales have been skyrocketing. In the past, fear of gun-buying restrictions has been the main driver of spikes...

Homemade Firearms, 'Ghost Guns' and Crime in the US
by The Trace, via GunPolicy.org on December 5, 2019 at 12:00 am
What exactly is a ghost gun? The term "ghost gun" is used by media, police, and sometimes the firearms industry to describe homemade weapons devoid of serial numbers or other identifying markings that enable them to be tracked to their maker, seller, or original owner. For years, law enforcement authorities referred to these weapons as simply "homemade" guns or "kit" guns. "Ghost gun" is a relatively new term. How are ghost guns made? A variety of ways. The most...

Bygone US Assault Weapon Ban Was Effective
by New York Times, Blog, via GunPolicy.org on September 4, 2019 at 12:00 am
Recent mass shootings have revived demands for meaningful gun control. But many opponents of a renewed federal ban on assault weapons, led by the National Rifle Association, say the earlier ban, from 1994 to 2004, made no difference. Our new research shows otherwise. We found that public mass shootings — which we defined as incidents in which a gunman killed at least six people in public — dropped during the decade of the federal ban. Yet, in the 15 years since the... [New York Times, Blog, via GunPolicy.org]

Speaking to CNN's Christiane Amanpour, the prime minister said: "Australia experienced a massacre and changed their laws. New Zealand had its experience and changed its laws. To be honest with you, I do not understand the United States." Ardern was referring both to a 1996... [Washington Post, via GunPolicy.org]
