It’s just as a matter of logic that private party sales are more likely to result in criminal use of firearms, but it’s an inference at this point.

Gun Show Report Critical of Sales
[The article goes on to say, “But Wintemute defended his report saying it was not meant to be a scientific study. Instead, he said he wanted people to see what happens at gun shows to encourage a closer examination of gun policy.”
What the frak? It wasn’t a scientific study? Is that the way it was received in the other press coverage? I don’t think so. They latched onto it with all the glee of Crack addict deprived of their fix for a week given free access to the police evidence room.
Let’s translate his “logic” into something more recognizable for what it is:
It’s just as a matter of logic that ni**ers being allowed in public after dark is more likely to result in criminal activity, but it’s an inference at this point.
Even if the activity in question did result in a measurable increase in criminal activity the exercise of a specific enumerated right unencumbered by the chilling effect of constant government monitoring is the price that must be paid.
