Re: for all the "too many guns already" idiots

"But it's simply not true that there has been a huge change. Look at one of the graphs on that page and gun murders went from 59 to 47 a year. "

Erm... I'm not sure if you read the same article, but the one that appeared on the link I clicked on says "The chances of being murdered by a gun in Australia plunged to 0.15 per 100,000 people in 2014 from 0.54 per 100,000 people in 1996"

You seem to be just counting the number of gun murders and ignoring that the population has increased in the last 20 years
