I can’t endorse policies whose only selling point is that gun owners hate them. Policies that often seem as if they were drafted by people who have encountered guns only as a figure in a briefing book or an image on the news.

I used to think gun control was the answer. My research told me otherwise.
[Leah Libresco is a statistician and former news writer at FiveThirtyEight, a data journalism site. The three months she and her colleagues spent analyzing the deaths of people who died via gunshot wounds arrived at conclusions most gun owners had arrived at decades ago.
So, why do the politicians propose such nonsensical policies? It’s about the control of gun owners.

But, if it saves one life!!!
…because all those lives the laws will cost don’t count.
(yes, being factious)
Leah Libresco’s career will be threatened, in three…two…one…
The Progressives can’t have this sort of thing going public. They’ll have no choice but to attack her if this gets too much publicity.
I disagree somewhat. It’s not about controlling us. It’s about putting a thumb in our eye.
