Quote of the day—Paul Valone

I defy anyone to find a serious, methodologically sound study showing that any gun law reduces violent crime. The National Academy of Sciences, in a literature review a few years ago, could not. Moreover, I reject the phrase “gun crime.” Is it better when homicide victims are killed by baseball bats or knives? The objective should be to reduce crime, regardless of the implement used by the offender.
