    •  Just looked at the linked site - a hodge podge (0+ / 0-)

      of data, etc. Below is part of 'About Us' for the site:

      "James D. Agresti, the president and primary researcher, holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Brown University and has worked as a designer of jet aircraft engines, a technical sales professional, and chief engineer of a firm that customizes helicopters. He is the author of Rational Conclusions, a highly researched book evidencing factual support for the Bible across a broad array of academic disciplines.

      Stephen F. Cardone, the vice-president, holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Brown University and has 20+ years of private industry experience in corporate management, operations, logistics, accounting, and customer service."

      IMHO - not valid credentials for analysis of public policy data.

      Something that doesn't make good sense, makes bad sense. That means someone is being deliberately hurtful & selfish. Look for motives behind actions & words.

      •  They aren't analyzing anything... (0+ / 0-)

        it's an aggregation of various data from other sources, with links to the sources. They seem at least to have no agenda.

        •  I disagree- 'Baffle em with Bullshit' is an agenda (0+ / 0-)

          The way I read the data presented is that gun controls don't work; the data was all jumbles & compared different things that aren't comparable, & kept repeating that gun control laws didn't help make things safer. Comparing different places & different time periods is not valid.
