Guns in America: A history of violence – “The main difficulty for academics studying the link between guns and gun crime, however, is the lack of a true counterfactual. A researcher cannot hold all other things constant while varying the stringency of gun laws in order to isolate the effect of those laws on the incidence of violence. That leaves open the possibility that any reductions in crime following a tightening of gun laws may be rooted in other, unrelated causes. Crime rates have tumbled in many rich countries in recent decades, complicating any analysis of the role of guns.” Why is it that articles like this never seem to mention all the lives saved and assaults prevented every year by those who own guns? Must be an oversight.
Why I Changed On Guns And Why Congress Should, Too – “There are a substantial number of steps our nation needs to take to keep America safe. Some of those steps involve funding for law enforcement; upgrades to homeland security; and an intensification of efforts to identify, target and eliminate terrorists and the groups like ISIS that support them.

I was visiting our water projects in Africa and met young kids with guns. Many of them were smaller than the guns that they were carrying, and that was the inspiration for me to try to take the AK-47, which is the most famous symbol of conflict in Africa, and turn it into something that was beautiful and positive.” Fonderie 47’s only making 20 of these watches. Somehow PRI neglects to mention the price: $195,000. Each. Virtue signaling for the 1%.

Gun sales are being bolstered by rhetoric on both sides.”
