In this context, the Australian National Firearms Agreement (NFA) is often presented as a model for a minimum of gun laws for the United States.9 This agreement limited access to certain categories of firearms, regulated and strengthened state licensing laws and implemented a gun buyback system and amnesty that led to the recall of approximately 640,000 rifles.10 Although it was designed to prevent mass shootings and have been effective in this area. “11 Some researchers have argued that the NFA also has a measurable effect on suicide and gun murder. A 2010 study found an 80% reduction in suicide mortality from NFA12, but was unable to adapt to the downward trend in firearms-related mortality, and used an ordinary regression of smaller squares, which limited the validity of its results. Conclusions. The NFA has not had any statistically observable additional effects on suicide or mortality from firearms assaults in Australia. However, a more detailed analysis of the legislation shows that it has probably had a negligible effect on suicides and firearms homicides in Australia and may not have had as much impact in the United States as some gun control advocates do not expect. In the context of recent mass shootings in the United States, public health researchers and advocates of gun policy reform have identified a different political environment in which real changes in gun control policy may be possible.34 Measures were requested on the basis of evidence that could have a significant impact on the U.S. gun mortality crisis.35 (7) more than 26,000 firearms from New South Wales are in action in New South Wales. either for destruction or registered. More importantly, three studies that found a reduction in firearm suicides also found statistically significant reductions in non-firearm suicides (Chapman et al., 2006; Chapman, Alpers and Jones, 2016; Baker and McPhedran, 2015). McPhedran and Baker (2012) also found significant ruptures in the 1997 suicide-to-death series among 15-24 year olds and 25-34 year olds and 1998 among 35-44 year olds.
While it is possible that the NFA has reduced the number of firearms and other weapons suicides, the mechanism by which it may have had an impact on non-firearm suicides was not clear and most public health experts do not predict such an effect. Another explanation for these findings is that factors other than those of the NFA around 1996 led to changes in non-firearm suicide rates, and these factors may also have had an impact on firearm suicide, which was independent of the impact of the NFA. Another study found a non-significant decrease in non-gun suicide rates following the adoption of the NFA, although it found a significant decrease in the number of firearm suicides related to the number of prohibited weapons in Australian provinces and states (Leigh and Neill, 2010). However, the study did not show that the rates of carrying firearm-related suicides related to gun shooting were significantly higher than the non-significant decreases in non-firearm suicides. While there is evidence that the 1996 agreement reduced firearm suicides in Australia, studies have also found a significant decrease in non-firearm suicides, which has challenged the question of whether it was NFA or other simultaneous events that led to a reduction in gun and non-gun suicides. The complexity of the model and the large number of statistical tests also increase the risk of poorly largest results, but this was unavoidable due to the nature of didD design and it is unlikely that the most important results will change significantly, as the experimental variable is not considered statistically significant.
