This bit of aggravating agitprop tweeted by @BarakObama is all kinds of awesome. When the Civilian Disarmament Proponent in Chief relies on facts to win support for gun control he’s on a hiding to nowhere. The facts simply don’t support the gun grabbers’ position. For example, the lowest estimate I can find for successful defensive gun uses [via David Hemenway]: 55k per year. Over 45 years, that’s 2,475,000 DGUs. The Prez’ stat includes suicides; roughly half of “gun violence” victims. Final tally 2,475,000 lives saved to 900k lives lost. If we removed gang bangers from the stats . . . to paraphrase Simon and Garfunkel, anyway you look at this they lose. As long as you don’t look at with a bloody shirt waving in your face. Flower petals and false facts? Bring it!
