Inflating the Numbers

This is how anti-gun fools come up with the numbers they cite. They conflate separate numbers to come up with a total. Pending cases, for instance, are counted every time they appear. Since a pending case can be there sometimes for several years, and most are dismissed at the end, a “pending case” is counted THREE TIMES whether or not is ends in a conviction—which most don't. Licensed gun carriers commit crimes in fewer cases than COPS. And licensed gun owners are counted, whether or not they used their gun to kill themselves. This is just one way they get those misleading numbers they continually cite to “prove their case” to gullible people who “pay no attention to politics,” but vote, anyway. They do this on a regular basis and thus, you just can't depend on their numbers. (The Hill)
