These 3 laws might reduce U.S. gun deaths by 80%
More than 90 people are killed by guns every day in the United States. In 2013, there were 33,636 gun deaths in the US. Civilians own approximately 270 million guns, roughly one “for every man, woman, and child,” as President Obama noted in an address to the nation in the wake of the shooting rampage at an Oregon community college last October that left 10 dead. A nationwide study that shows just 9 of 25 state gun laws are effective in reducing firearm deaths, suggests that if three laws implemented in some states were adopted nationwide, they could reduce gun deaths by more than 80 percent.
