Eighteen states have laws that expand Brady background checks. A recent study shows that states with expanded Brady background checks see 46 percent fewer women murdered with guns by intimate partners; 48 percent fewer law enforcement officers killed by handguns; and 48 percent fewer gun-related suicides.

[What they don’t tell you is just as important as what they do tell you.
- They don’t tell you the details of this “recent study”.
- They don’t tell you if the total number of women murdered went up or down.
- They don’t tell you if the total number of law enforcement officers killed went up or down.
- They don’t tell you if the total number of suicides went up or down.
- They don’t tell you if the number violent assaults went up or down.
- They don’t tell you the right to keep and bear arms is independent of the number of crimes committed with guns.
And most importantly they don’t tell you that they have a long history of deception and lies.—Joe]
