UC Davis Finds No Correlation

UC DAVIS STUDY PRODUCES UNEXPECTED RESULT
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 the increase in most interpersonal gun violence at the state level, according to a new study published in Injury Epidemiology, a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
The findings suggest that “we need to be looking at other factors, like job loss, economic change, the closure of schools and community organizations and nonprofits, and civil unrest,” in order to understand last year’s increase in gun violence, Julia Schleimer, the lead author of the new study, said.

The truth is that there IS a correlation between the accelerated rate of gun purchases and the escalation of violence, (violence involving the use of a gun and use of any other weapon rates NO differentiation!! Violence is violence!!!).


People are buying guns to prevent escalating violence from spilling over into THEIR lives!!
