The Economist posted this anti-gun graphic on their Facebook page. As TTAG tipster MM pointed out, “What if America got rid of all cars? Or carbs? Or candy? Or swimming pools? Or sharp corners?” Not that America could get rid of its guns; there are at least 300 million of them out there, somewhere, and they’re not what you’d call a highly perishable item. Even if America did, somehow, disappear all its firearms, the forces that lead to these stats – mostly drug-related gang banging – wouldn’t disappear. In short, as the Brits say, pull the other one, it’s got bells on it.
