Five Lies The Gun Lobby Tells You

From Think Progress:

MYTH #1: More guns don’t lead to more murders. A survey by researchers at the Harvard University School of Public Health found strong statistical support for the idea that, even if you control for poverty levels, more people die from gun homicides in areas with higher rates of gun ownership. And despite what gun advocates say, countries like Israel and Switzerland don’t disprove the point.

    Here’s a blog entry where the writer goes point-by-point as to why gun ownership in Israel is a whole ‘nother beast than here in the USA: http://freethoughtblogs.com/brutereason/2012/12/16/stop-comparing-the-united-states-to-israel/ Quite a good piece, I thought.
