5 Shocking results of the Presidential gun violence research

In the wake of Sandy Hook, President Obama commissioned a massive study to discern the effects of guns on violence in the population. The study cost $10 million, and had gun control activists excited about the truths that it would reveal. Utah activists were certain that the information it provided would help topple the NRA, along with making the next step towards keeping people safe from guns. The results were not as many expected. Here are some of the most shocking statistics found by that study.

Buyback programs recover a meager amount of firearms from gun owners, according to research. Of the 300 million guns owned by the population mere thousands are recovered through these programs. A study of buyback programs revealed that the typical guns used in homicides were never recovered through the program.

Of all the people that died from guns in the past decade, 61% of them were by their own hand. This statistic was the most reported fact on mainstream media, encouraging people to keep their gun safes locked away from children and suicidels in Utah. Critics argue that if a person wants to commit suicide, taking their gun away from them will only change the execution.

However, research shows that guns used in self defense happen more often, sometimes totaling to millions of times a year. More and more testimonials are surfacing in Utah about how they were able to keep their business or their family safe from criminals by using a gun to defend themselves.

Background checks and assault rifle bans are inconsistent

The intended purpose of assault rifle bans was to keep assault rifles out of the hands of criminals and the mentally handicapped, keeping local citizens safe from gun violence. The data received on the matter was so diverse that an accurate conclusion cannot yet be made on the issue.
