The National Rifle Association recently linked violent movies to gun deaths. Therefore, I feel perfectly confident in assuming that the reason gun deaths have declined so dramatically in Australia since 1996 is that the country must have banned violent movies. In fact, I suspect that all you can see is Disney stuff, musicals and documentaries on crocodiles.
However, Aussies watch the same movies as Americans. The real reason gun-related deaths have fallen dramatically in Australia since 1996 is that it banned assault rifles, implemented other gun controls and undertook a gun buyback.
The gun homicide rate in Australia is about one-thirtieth of that in the United States.
