Well guys, good news. I just got assigned as my final paper as research paper, ANY TOPIC! So I think you guys know where this is going :D

So basically, I was hoping you guys could suggest some good sources for stats on gun violence and control, as well as any outside reading (I already have Unintended Consequences and Enemies foreign and domestic).

as for specific information I need:
-the cost of a machine gun prior to the NFA (a BAR say), as well as after word (Im assuming the same + 200 stamp)
-number of school shootings prior to 1934 and 1986.
plus, anything else. Its a LONG paper, so Ill probably use alot of stats.

Any ideas that you guys mention on here I will cite you for, if you want it.

You could defiantly track the smashing successes they are having in Australia with gun grabbing. If you have netflix see "Michael and me” not all that great of a reference but food for cogent though.

I dont reccomend citing "Unintended Consequences" as a source :D

You might want to find our what the $200 dollar tax would be today if it was corrected for inflation. :eek:

I believe it's something > $30,000.

Weapons Distribution

The UCR Program collects weapon data for murder, robbery, and aggravated assault offenses. An examination of these data indicated that most violent crime (30.7 percent) involved the use of personal weapons, such as hands, fists, feet, etc. Firearms were used in 26.4 percent and knives or cutting instruments were used in 15.5 percent of violent crime. Other dangerous weapons were used in 27.3 percent of violent offenses. (Based on Tables 2.9 and 19.)

Im not citing UC, just using it to get some ideas really *shrugs*

the countries I am going to be using:
Britain, Australia, Switzerland, Somalia (to show why its NOT a good comparison), Sweden, and maybe a couple of other places that I cant think of yet.

You may want to compare Tel Aviv to Washington D.C.

I read in a NRA Rifleman mag that some people in Brazil are trying to do a gun ban there. I am not sure where they are with it. It has been a while since I read it but may be a country to include in your study. Just a thought.

I read that same article. I believe the ban was defeated, but it will surely be back. The UN was trying to ban them, just like they are doing with other "member states".

Clayton Cramer (http://www.claytoncramer.com/) has quite a few interesting books and articles available that could help your research. He is the guy that keeps a blog of newspaper reports of civilian self defense with firearms (http://www.claytoncramer.com/gundefenseblog/blogger.html)
