Professor Volokh Cited in International Business Times on Correlation Between Gun Restriction and Murder Rates

November 23, 2015 -- Professor Eugene Volokh was cited in an International Business Times article on the correlation between levels of gun restrictions in various countries and their murder rates.

According to the International Business Times: Mass shootings of civilians are the most appalling aspect of easy access to guns in the US. And they seem to be becoming increasingly common. But they should not be the focus of the gun debate: they account for less than 1% of homicides in the US and, as Eugene Volokh, professor of law at UCLA, points out, mass shooters (who usually plan their attacks well in advance) are the least likely to have their access to guns restricted by tighter gun laws.
