    According to the same chart:


    The murder rate among black males, aged 20 to 24, is 133.34 per 100,000.

    :shock:

    Gee, do you think that is a factor that could influence a study if it was not a controlled factor in the study?

    Emory's own Kellerman. A Tale of Two Cities. The theme was how much Canada's gun control caused lower murder rates and how Washington's lax gun regulations lead to blood in the streets, with the conclusion that of course America should adopt Canada style gun laws. BUt there were a few things Kellerman overlooked in his effort to champion gun control. For one, Vancouver experienced a 26% jump in homicide after adoption of the gun control scheme!

    They are comparing a Canadian city to a US city?

    It is actually an old study, but it just goes to show how far Emory's Kellerman and others will go to misrepresent the issues and present it as a "scientific study."

    And the media does not call him on it.

    Kellerman is also the one responsible for the "You are X times more likely to be shot with your gun than use it in self defense" nonsense that resulted, for a while, in little warning tags being put on guns in the Atlanta area.

    Anybody remember that?
