    Law Professor Demolishes Florida AG's Misuse of Statistics About Guns

    Eugene Volokh smashes the Florida Attorney General Office's misuse of statistics in a case that involved unlicensed concealed carry of a firearm. And, Volokh does it with style, too. Heh, heh, heh.

    Essentially, the AG's brief said that since only a small percentage of people have CC permits, then the vast percentage of CC must be illegal, therefore justifying a stop-and-frisk. Volokh totally dissassembles the misuse of statistics, and neatly uses the AG's own logic on the AG's office by saying there was a 99% chance the brief writer was not licensed to practice law. Oh, that was good.

    The blog has a link to the AG's brief, too. Florida readers will find tons of case cites in the brief, a fast, easy source for Florida case law.

    Please click on the link and enjoy Eugene Volokh as he shreds the AG's logic.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I've always like Eugene Volokh, I read his blog from time to time.

    He's a real supporter of the bill of rights

    In fact I believe a lecture he gave was actually cited by SCOTUS in the Heller case
