The sad truth is that the vast and overwhelming majority of the “facts” used in the current gun control debate are almost completely untrue. And if not untrue, then at least twisted to the point where they are no longer accurate. In an attempt to comb through the MASSIVE body of work that TTAG has done in the past three years and tease out some of the more relevant articles for the more common misconceptions about guns, I’ve tried to make this page a simple and usable reference to quickly look up the info and pull up an article to refute the BS. I’ll lay out the more common gun control talking points, and give you some links that lay out the truth… about guns.
