Sharp As A Marble links to an article by an economist-type, analyzing statistics involving firearms, shooting, homicide, accidents and similar light subjects.
From the article linked…
As someone recently said, we don’t need gun control, we need idiot control. Not sure how we control the idiots, but I’m sympathetic to the idea. Statistically though, the number of firearm murders per year simply doesn’t justify any renewed call for banning or restricting the sale or possession of firearms.
Summed up by Robb Allen…
We have facts, history, and reality on our side. They have emotionally driven hysteria, misunderstanding, and dick jokes.
That’s part of why we win.
Please visit the link above for the particulars.
Wishing my friend Mark Bell were here to do that. He loved The Economist.
