Report Won't Make Obama Happy

The “report” coming from his Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council, (though I don’t see what MEDICINE has to do with this) isn’t going to entirely support his position on gun control. First,  it shows that instances of gun violence are getting BETTER, not worse—mostly because of better laws in 39 states); mass shootings are NOT the problem, and guns are used for self defense often, and effectively (something the anti-gun freaks say never happens). It is NOT true that the blame for most gun violence falls on a few “bad gun dealers.” That’s because most of the guns in use by criminals come from “back alley criminals” who sell guns out of the trunks of their cars. This item appeared in Slate, one of the most liberal sources. They must have had a gun to their heads. (Slate)
