2016 marked the 20th anniversary of Port Aurthur Massacre (1996)

The Port Aurthur Massacre happened in Australia where an individual killed 35 people

[IT MATTERS]

The individual Martin Bryant went on a killing spree costing 35 lives and wounding 23

After the massacre, Australia imposed gun control laws

Today there has been a 72% chance of decline in chances of being killed by a gun in Australia

In 1996 Australia had 311 murders, of which 98 were with guns

In 2014, with the population up from about 18 million to 23 million

Australia had 238 murders, of which 35 were with guns.
