A shooting that brings about tighter gun control or debate about it.

A gun control shooting is an event, which triggers tighter gun control, confiscation of guns, and/or does intensify the debate about these things (especially in the United States with it's Second Amendment). Some of these may be false flag attacks, designed to do exactly that. Media attention is high in such cases, sometimes with significant worldwide coverage.

Why US gun laws get looser after mass shootings

United States

A 2020 study in the Journal of Public Economics found that: "mass shootings are associated with large increases in gun-related news coverage and that increased news coverage is associated with greater legislative activity in the form of firearm-related bills introduced in state legislatures". These shooting lead to a 15% increase in the number of firearm bills introduced within a state in the year after a mass shooting, on average and that, when looking at bills that were actually enacted into law, the impact of mass shootings depends on the party in power. Laws that loosen gun restrictions increase in the aftermath of a mass shooting in states with Republican-controlled legislatures, with no significant effect of mass shootings on laws enacted when there is a Democrat-controlled legislature.[1] The study also notes that they find no significant effects of mass shootings on laws that tighten gun restrictions, but [their] estimates are imprecise.

Guns were confiscated in Australia after the 1996 Port Arthur Massacre and in Britain after the 1996 Dunblane school massacre. The Christchurch mass shooting in 2019 lead to the confiscation of guns in New Zealand.

Related Quotation

Mass shooting“The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd amendment.”William Cooper1991
