numbers

Hard to take seriously with the toy Beretta 92 and teacup grip:

Hopefully the data is legit at least.  It lists Wikipedia as one of the sources, which never impresses me.  I figured some of you guys would like to take a look, and possibly tear the people that put this out a new one. haha

The bar graph at the bottom seems pretty useless considering it’s only representing the change seen in 1 year.  At first glance it looks like shit got real in SD, IA, and ID… but then you look at the map and see they are among the safest places in the country to live.

Thoughts?

Or as I’d prefer to call it; Firearms Save Lives! :P (yea yea I know.. that’s not necessarily true):

The hypothesis of “more guns = more deaths” is demonstrably false over the past 28 years of documented American history. The number of firearms in civilian circulation have been steadily increasing over that time period, and the number of firearm-related fatalities has not been equivalently increasing.

Linoge over at Walls Of The City turns the numbers into visuals.  He put the spreadsheet up with the data so you can look it over if you have any doubts.
