    Gun Laws and Murder Rates

    Notice that the title isn't gun laws and gun death rates. Unlike the sleazy spinmeisters at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the Brady Campaign I'm not cherry picking data to make a false point. In their 2013 State Scorecard Why Gun Laws Matter they claim that gun control works because there is allegedly a 70% overlap of strict gun control and low gun death rates. Reality looks a little different.

    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    What would it matter; gun rates of deaths v. lives saved? The RKBA is a right. I need no more statistical analysis.

    Yes, you're right, of course. Right now the stats favor our cause. We have to be careful to make principled arguments too since the day may come when murder & crime rates start going up & guess what side the numbers will favor then.
