“After the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Conn., people across the country went out and bought guns,” npr.org reports. “A study published Thursday concludes that a subsequent increase in gun exposure led to more accidental firearm deaths than otherwise would have occurred in the months after the school shooting.” Sixty more, in fact . . .
More spree killings -> more calls for gun control -> more gun sales -> more death! In the words of the study’s author, Wellesley College Economics professor Phillip Levine, “Introducing unsuccessful gun control legislation isn’t necessarily helping. It may be hurting.”
Notice how the good Professor leaves the door open to the possibility of positive benefits for “successful” gun control legislation. And weasels on his own anti-gun control conclusion: “It may be hurting.”
Be that as it is, aside from papers prepared by John “More Stats, More Glazed Eyes” Lott, every study on “gun violence” leads to the conclusion that gun control is a good thing, not a bad thing. And that more of it would be a good thing, not a bad thing.
Given their obvious bias, faulty logic and unsupportable conclusions, the anti-gun rights eggheads seem to be divorced from reality. True story? Are they insane?
