of decline that has remained fairly constant Looking at 1996-2014 in which the rate has dropped from 26-086 it shows that the decline has been slower in a longer period of time since the law’s passing

differ significantly between countries Since 1996-1997 neither country has experienced a mass shooting event despite the continued availability of semi-automatic longarms in New Zealand<b> The authors conclude that “the hypothesis that Australia’s prohibition of certain types of firearms explains the absence of mass shootings in that country since 1996 does not appear to be supported… if civilian access to certain types of firearms explained the occurrence of mass shootings in Australia and conversely if prohibiting such firearms explains the absence of mass shootings then New Zealand a
