Gun ‘study’ suggests agenda ‘science’ with omission of key considerations
As is typical with such publications, it only looks at (less than) half of the equation, disregarding the substantial number of defensive gun uses that occur each year. Without comparing that, the number of people who didn’t die because they had a gun is excluded from the totals.
