For your perusal is an article from Dr. John Lott in the Chicago Tribune written November 20 this year. If you are a supporter of the 2nd Amendment you need to be aware of Dr. Lott and his work. There is no one else on Earth that accumulates, correlates, and presents more FACTS about gun ownership than Dr. Lott. And literally, all of those facts indicate that GUNS SAVE LIVES. That Georgia Carry has not invited him to be a keynote speaker at one of their annual conventions is one of the great unsolved mysteries of our time. Here is the article: https://www.chicagotribune.com/news...d-oaks-mercy-hospital-chicago-1121-story.html Here is an article from CPRC that addresses surrounding issues and provides the data referenced in the first article: https://crimeresearch.org/2015/06/c...m-mass-public-shootings-in-the-us-and-europe/ And for the "Snopes is the final word" folks, here's a link (imbedded in the second link above) to address Snopes duplicity on the subject; https://crimeresearch.org/2018/03/f...ke-comparing-mass-public-shootings-us-europe/ Constructive feedback and discussion always appreciated!
