    Try reading a book?

    Dr. John R. Lott Jr., More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws (1998, U. Chicago)

    Dr. Lott's dataset and protocols are on-line at his AEI site (free registration).

    Hoo, that's helpful.

    Thinking that there might be an image with some sense, I enabled images and saw no sense, including a twenty-something wannabe with a white-haired avatar! HO Ho ho, 6722 desperately seeking significance as an 'adult'.

    Lets not forget Australia, and Britian. Two more great examples.
    I dare your professor to argue it is Va, and Pa fault in those examples.
    Remember when politicaly incorrect you need more than just facts, you
    need examples that show the stupid feel good logic is flawed.

    So try hitting your head with a hammer, and then jot down all the stupid
    things that come to mind. Then refute them in your paper. This should
    be a good start to the lunacy you will be facing.

    Of course you simply must turn it in while wearing your empty holster.:shock:

    I could have sworn that was proved to be the biggest farce in pro-gun history. Yes, yes it was.

    If you're writing a college level research paper at anything other than the worst community college in your state, your sources need to be sold and reasonably unbiased. Lott is well know for being a farce and was, in fact,given as a shiningexample of a source not to use in my E120 class. If it's a high school paper, go for it. They don't actually check sources.


    Seems sort of ironic, in the light of all that, for you to criticize the guy that actually posted a helpful example. D.C., England, etc anywhere that guns have been banned and crime has gone up make for great anecdotal evidence.

    As for hard facts and research, good luck with that. Most real-world statistics on gun control are not in your favor. Stick to D.C. and England, try to find statistics for crime before and after the ban. It's going to be up to you to sell the idea that the ban is the cause of the crime increase and not just a correlation.

    Yes, you wrote nothing. If you're going to accuse someone of trolling, at least contribute something yourself.

    As usual I disagree with luser=12267.

    A larger farce in "pro-gun history" is Michael A. Bellesiles' Arming of America: the Origins of a National Gun Culture (2000, Diane, Darby PA) out of print and ranked #1,325,140 at Amazon.com.

    I suggest that luser=12267 knows nothing of academic research or dialogue, and certainly nothing of 'proof'.

    Either we are equal or we are not. Good people ought to be armed where they will, with wits and guns and the truth. NRA *******

    I'm not understanding the "trolling" issue. Please tell me where that come in with the post in question?

    That's cute Dougie, you say "luser" instead of "user". Wow! Good one buddy.
