Yes, people kill people. But guns make a huge difference in how many people get killed.

Like any dangerous product — cars, airplanes, explosives — sensible regulation of guns clearly plays a positive role in reducing both misuse of this product and the number of deaths resulting from such misuse.

But no mention of all those babies who didn't do nuffing

Oh but you did include suicide by gun while not looking at the total amount of suicide, seems fair and above board to me

Just ignore the fact that parts of Chicago, NYC, Omaha, St. Louis, Houston, NOLA, LA, and Oakland have Caribbean levels of crime, all independently of state laws, which range in those areas from proscriptive to permissive...ummm...seems like the laws themselves have little impact.

Per capita measure, often a good way to get apples to apples comparisons, also can be abused to really skew things. For example, if State A has 10 million residents and 10,000 gun related deaths annually, but 90% of them are concentrated in one city/locality with a population of 500,000 people, then that states per capita gun death rate is greatly skewed by the states overall large population compared to the concentrated [city] population where the bulk of those gun death transpire. In effect the per capita measure is diluted. Conversely, comparing state A to state B which only has 500,000 residents, and experiences 1,000 gun related deaths annually, but they are fairly evenly spread amongst four to five cities/localities, would not have as great of a dilution effect as state A. That is why that map is totally bogus, because it tries to compare gun deaths throughout the entire state of Alaska with that of Illinois, when in fact most gun deaths in Illinois occur in the city of Chicago which itself is more populous than the entire state of Alaska. So the honest measure would be to compare the per capita gun death rate of the state of Alaska with the city of Chicago, and then I think we would see that Chicago with its heavy handed 2A restrictions has a much higher per capita gun death rate than the entire state of Alaska.

Also, it doesn't take a genius to figure out states with highly restrictive 2A infringements (California, New York, Illinois, etc.) still have the highest rates of gun crime/deaths if measured by the city where 90% of those crimes occur. This is proof positive that restrictive gun laws in fact don't work.

Direct causation could not be determined, but at the very least, such a strong correlation should make it clear that existing public policy in many states with lax gun laws comes at a high price: more dead mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters and others.

A short reply I did:

This article is so vague and misleading. There is no correlation between gun laws and gun mortality rates, which can be seen by reading the confusing data. Did you know that over 1/2 of all gun related deaths are suicides? The other 1/2, 70% of those deaths are gang related. As to the very misleading map, correlating the United States gun laws (lax as it says) vs other countries...the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime submitted a report from 1998-2000 and it showed that on the top 10 countries with the highest violence rate (because of lax gun control) the US did not even make the list.

If he asks for sources, I will give him links.

120 people, out of a population of 731,000, died related to firearms in Alaska. That is a per capita death rate of 16 per 100,000. Conversely Chicago has a population of 2.715 million and saw 506 people killed by guns in 2012. That is a per capita death rate of 19 per 100,000. Obviously, Chicago's heavy 2A infringements are not resulting in lower gun death rates compared to Alaska's less restrictive 2A laws. Conclusion, stricter 2A infringements result in a higher per capita gun death rate. Statistics, see how that shit works?

IIRC, that government gun study over the summer said that if you toss out NYC, Chicago, Baltimore and DC (I think it was those four) then the US has a murder rate comparable to Western European countries.

Direct causation could not be determined, but at the very least, such a strong correlation should make it clear that existing public policy in many states with lax gun laws comes at a high price: more dead mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters and others.

don't waste your time. You're about as likely to convince that fucktard that guns are good as he is to convince you that guns are evil.

They are not against guns for the safety factor, the left hates guns because they allow the feeble public to resist!

Yes, people kill people. But guns make a huge difference in how many people get killed.

Like any dangerous product — cars, airplanes, explosives — sensible regulation of guns clearly plays a positive role in reducing both misuse of this product and the number of deaths resulting from such misuse.

The map itself was part of a scholarly study by researchers from Boston Children's Hospital and published this March in JAMA Internal Medicine.

The 2013 CDC study of gun control laws showed interesting results. This LINK is one of many with similar information.

"As Graham Noble of Guardian Express noted, “If one were to exclude figures for Illinois, California, New Jersey and Washington, DC, the homicide rate in the United States would be in line with any other country.” These areas, of course, are noted for the most restrictive gun laws in the country, thus negating any opportunity for the president to celebrate the report’s findings."

"Furthermore, the key finding the president was no doubt seeking — that more laws would result in less crime — was missing. The study said that “interventions,” such as background checks and restrictions on firearms and increased penalties for illegal gun use, showed “mixed” results, while “turn-in” programs “are ineffective” in reducing crime. The study noted that most criminals obtained their guns in the underground economy — from friends, family members, or gang members — well outside any influence from gun controls on legitimate gun owners."

Guess we can just leave out factors like violent crime per 100k, trends on overall crime against persons since concealed carry started to spread, etc etc. In his own article he states"Direct causation could not be determined," wow that's called shooting yourself in the foot
I guess we can wrap this up and commit his latest username to the dust.

In effect the per capita measure is diluted. Conversely, comparing state A to state B which only has 500,000 residents, and experiences 1,000 gun related deaths annually, but they are fairly evenly spread amongst four to five cities/localities, would not have as great of a dilution effect as state A. That is why that map is totally bogus, because it tries to compare gun deaths throughout the entire state of Alaska with that of Illinois, when in fact most gun deaths in Illinois occur in the city of Chicago which itself is more populous than the entire state of Alaska. So the honest measure would be to compare the per capita gun death rate of the state of Alaska with the city of Chicago, and then I think we would see that Chicago with its heavy handed 2A restrictions has a much higher per capita gun death rate than the entire state of Alaska.

Also, it doesn't take a genius to figure out states with highly restrictive 2A infringements (California, New York, Illinois, etc.) still have the highest rates of gun crime/deaths if measured by the city where 90% of those crimes occur. This is proof positive that restrictive gun laws in fact don't work.

I'd like to see the map and "analysis" used at the link broken down by county rather than state. I think that would be very telling.
