    FBI study shows truth about crime and guns
    The FBI recently concluded a five-year study on the ineffectiveness of gun restrictions at keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. The study, called “Violent Encounters: A Study of Felonious Assaults on Our Nation’s Law Enforcement Officers,” looked at 40 incidents involving attacks using guns (some were deadly) on police officers. Contrary to Brady Campaign propaganda, only one of these guns was obtained legally. Gun shows, a hated target of the gun-grabbers, accounted for exactly zero. Gosh, are we ever confused; we thought gun laws would reduce gun violence! Perhaps such laws would reduce violence, if criminals obeyed the law, but then they wouldn’t be criminals, would they?

    I could not find the original report, but this summarizes it nicely.

    IIRC it is the source document that you quoted at the beginning of the thread.

    I could be wrong - "Grasping another opportunity to be wrong." Grasp the nettle of error manfully that you may learn and not be stung.

    Thanks for looking over my shoulder. I hope you found it interesting, though there is a lot more, especially on the Derek J. Hale killing.

    The conspiracy of ignorance masquerades as common sense.

    Not looking over anyone'sshoulder, that's rude. Just heard the phrase, thought it might have another source and googled it. Google is a wonderful thing.
