Good News: Support for Assault Weapons Ban Grows
Very few countries in the world allow civilians to own assault weapons, and only one does so with practically no restrictions (that one would be the world leader in mass shootings). Guns and Ammo made a list of the "10 Best Countries for Gun Owners," and even in that list only five readily allow semiautomatic weapon ownership at all.
Most Americans support a ban on assault weapons. That proportion ticked up to 58%, as it does after each mass shooting.
The experience of Australia in effectively ending mass shooters gives all countries hope.
