The gun grabbers LOVE them some epidemiological studies. How may times are we forced to suffer the claim of “a person with a gun in the house is 40 times more likely to be shot than someone without one.” These conclusions are all based on epidemiological studies.

With the Obama Admin getting ready to make a push on new “studies” of the “public health issues surrounding guns,” it’s important we understand this issue to make an effective counter argument.
