Australia 20 Years After Gun Reform

No mass shootings, declining firearm deaths - JAMA

In the 18 years before Australia banned semi-automatic long guns there were 13 mass shootings. In the 20 years following the ban no mass shootings occurred, and the decline in total firearm deaths accelerated.

Banning rapid-fire firearms was associated with reductions in mass shootings and total firearm deaths.
