Flawed Study on Guns

David Codrea & Eric Puryear explain a few of the fatal errors in a flawed Study on guns. Another gaping hole in the study that occurs to me is that it only looked at incidents where a gun was fired - often by one criminal at another criminal in gang related incidents. Legitimate Studies have shown that 98% of self defense uses of a gun by law abiding citizens take place where the gun owner doesn't have to fire a single shot - simply aiming their weapon at the thug was enough to stop the attack. By leaving out the single largest portion of self defense uses of a gun the study shot itself in the foot.

Here's a funny music video making fun of "gun free zones from sea to sea." The vision of "New America" according to progressives, who hate the NRA:

The setting of the rebate rate is another instrument of national bank approach. These days it is optional to open-showcase operations, and the Fed for the most part keeps the rebate rate near the government stores advertise rate. Be that as it may, reporting another markdown rate is regularly a helpful approach to make an impression on the currency markets. Cash Advance Corona
