Now this is a model in how to conduct an interview on a hot topic issue. Kudos to the Post. But then again this is a journalist acting professioal not that tabloid amatuer Piers Morgan

Professor Lott, as to your last point in the interview that you haven't seen any place worldwide where the data show a decrease in violent crime as a result of increased gun control. What about Australia? Are MSM news reports accurate that Australia's gun control ban as a result of the mass killings in Port Arthur has lead to a subsequent decrease in violent crime, murders, etc? If so, what conclusions, if any, can we draw about a nation with 7% of the US population in roughly the same geographic area?

@ David

Homicide in Australia has decreased somewhat since the measures implemented in 1996, but only slightly. And it was already decreasing before hand.
