During this period, most of the murders were committed with handguns. Second, since 1911, New York had imposed a handgun licensing law, which proved unequal to the task of reducing violent crime in this city. Third, the federal Gun Control Act of 1968 imposed stringent restrictions on the possession and bearing of firearms, throughout the US (Preface to “Deterring Gun Violence”). However, this measure was ineffective, as is borne out by the fact that in comparison to the five years preceding the enactment of this act, the murder rate of the US, after the enactment of this act, showed a 50% increase. In the five years following this period, the murder rate showed a 75% increase, and in the 5 year period after that the increase was 81% (Preface to “Deterring Gun Violence”). As such, in the US crime rate was enhanced much, when gun control laws were in operation. Gun control laws were unsuccessful in controlling the crime in the US.
