MYTH: More guns = violence
2

"The analysis discovered that up to 1 in 6 skulls exhumed in Scandinavia from the late Stone Age — between about 6,000 and 3,700 years ago — had nasty head injuries. And contrary to findings from mass gravesites of the period, women were equally likely to be victims of deadly blows, according to the study published in the February issue of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.

But looking only at the aftermath of big, bloody conflicts can obscure the day-to-day realities of Neolithic farmers."

So there you go, guns are not the reason for violent behavior. It is the behavior of killers, rapists, murderers and so on. Guns, hammers, bras are just tools. There were no GUN 6,000 years ago but violence existed!
