NPR story: THOUSANDS of studies prove Gun control DOES NOT work!
quote:

The non-profit RAND corporation spent two years and $1 million on the analysis, searching for evidence of benefit from gun control policies. RAND’s analysis looked to establish connections between gun policies and rates of homicide, suicide, self-defense gun use, hunting, and other categories. The vast majority of those categories went unaffected by legislation, however, according to NPR.

“Most of the effects that we were looking for evidence on, we didn’t find any evidence,” Andrew Morral, who lead the analysis.

I could’ve told them that. And I only would’ve charged em half the cost of that study.

That looks like a thorough and well-researched report; I look forward to reading it.
Thanks for the link.



Small edification ... research/studies don’t ever prove; they provide evidence.

Bro, I have been listening to NPR every morning for the last 8 years. Trump has sent them over the ledge. Honesty, I can’t believe they ran this story.

Mostly being silly - I stopped listening to them during the election. They used to run articles that didn't have any real political leaning in the portions I listened to during my work drives. Until the 2016 election, that is.

NPR is hiring a conservative voice. IT's called pressure of being defunded!

It’s like someone flipped a switch over there. They went from one of the few objective news sources to MSNBC or CNN. I can hardly listen to it now.

Same, truth be told. I just don't listen to radio news anymore. No one is even remotely close to impartial. It's just who you want to hear be called stupid more.

Doesn't matter. Libs aren't big on truth and facts.

or logic
or reason
or common sense.

Better put out lots of food, water, a place to get out of the weather, a line for the gun to run a bit for exercise too or PETFA (People for Ethical Treatment of FireArms) will get after you.

Depends on what the objective is. It works just fine if the goal is tyranny.

Since gun control doesn't work, the only solution is to seize guns. That's what the dims will be arguing next.

Rand Corporation always seems to do high quality type research, and the results are unsurprising.

Since you discuss a lot of topics that involve scientific research, one way or the other, and I'm sure your sister who does cancer research would agree: PROVE should basically never be used in science, especially when referring the the NULL hypothesis. It's a pet peeve, but it's troubling it's brought up elsewhere, most notably Global Warming, so I think the word needs some eradication.

And thus came the end of the Republic. It isn’t Democrats and Republicans doing what Democrats and Republicans have always done. Instead it will be the abdication of the fourth estate. Far more sinister, far more dangerous.

file this under #dude-your-better-than-this

The RAND corporation? (Henry Arnold, Donald Douglas, Major General Curtis LeMay). A Geo-political think tank created by a major player in the military industrial complex is pushing an agenda that gun control doesn't work? What's next, Easter bunny dyes eggs, ends up with blue fingers?

Don't buy the rhetoric dude, the 2nd amendment is the check-n-balance (ultimate protection) against a tyrannical government, not you against me or me against you. The more we allow the discussion to center on mad kids telling adults what to do, the less we support the real need, and closer we move to a new world order, disarmament, or whatever you care to call it.

Statistics are like bikinis . . .

IF . . . . all guns were banned,

IF . . . . all guns were removed from the populace,

IF . . . . we ignored not only the 2ndA, but its tenets as well,

Then, gun control would certainly "work".


All that remains is to define what "work" means in the all-inclusive sense.
