I was looking for statistics on gun deaths, because of the unproved and unlikely allegations like those posted above. And guess what? You can’t find many actual studies. It turns out that the NRA pushed Republicans to amend the federal budget so that it is ILLEGAL for the CDC to study gun deaths, and it is ILLEGAL for the ATF to release gun death data to the public. You can’t make this stuff up. But it DOES mean that conservative idiots can make things up like “guns in school would prevent violence” or “the most dangerous places are gun-free zones” and it’s tough to prove one way or the other. What IS actually, measurably, and statistically true (from the Harvard School of Public Health study) is that the more guns there are in a state, the more gun deaths there are; the more guns there are in a city, the more gun deaths there are; and if you have a gun in your home you are more likely to die from gun violence than if you don’t.
