Wonky science saves the day

I'm a big fan of the 2nd amendment and have always disputed the claims of one being X number of times more likely to be killed by gun fire if they had a gun in the house. I didn't have a great understanding of statistics or the study of social sciences but what I do have is a good radar or BS slogans.

When a group with an agenda start screaming one number of some 'study' over and over again it sounds entirely too much like they are liars. If you say the same lie enough people will begin to believe it's true.

Well here's a piece that puts a little ammo (pun intended) into the argument my gut has been making for years that the claim "If you have a gun you'll most likely die from gun violence" was crap
