Guns kill people, people don’t kill people????
The logic of the left seems to make our headline meaningful. But more so is the assertion constantly made that a society bristling with guns is a deadly one. But quite the opposite is actually true according to a study cited by Ann Coulter in her recent column decrying the poor research (and I decry their lack of journalistic standards as well!) in an article by one of their hacks:
“There is an academic, peer-reviewed, long-term study of the effect of various public policies on public, multiple shootings in all 50 states over a 20-year period performed by renowned economists at the University of Chicago and Yale, William Landes and John Lott. It concluded that the only policy to reduce the incidence of, and casualties from, mass shootings are concealed-carry laws.” Ann Coulter, Human Events column.
If common sense rules (and I know it doesn’t) – government would be looking for ways to arm citizenry to prevent growth in crime and mass killings. Rarely does a mass-killer stand up to a simple pistol aimed his way.
