Study Blows Away Gun Mythology

For years and years and years and years, the Brady Bunch ("We'll take your guns"), the social-worker bleeding hearts, and the MSM have attempted to establish a myth as Holy Writ.

The myth? That merely having a handgun in the house would result in gun violence in that house.

Now, after the Intellectualoids "studied" the reality, we learn what anybody with the common sense God gave rabbits knew in the first damn place:

The vast majority of homicides in Milwaukee this year were committed by people who have been arrested before and one-quarter of them were on probation or parole at the time of the killngs, police officials said today.

The commission found that 90% of suspects in this year’s homicides had arrest records, she said. Some 77% of homicide victims also had been arrested and one in six was on probation when they were killed.

To re-state the obvious: it ain't the gun, it's the critter pulling the trigger.


Your Mom was right: bad companions are not good for you. Not only that, they can be fatal.
