    Redstate has a FP article called "The only gun infographic you'll ever need". Here is a link to where it came from and the numbers this idiot used. You have to scroll down to see the graphic. Mind numbing.

    Explained: Gun Facts You Need To Know

    I especially love the great company the USA is keeping regarding the number of guns owned and the top 25 countries gun murder rates. So yea, maybe he is right. This is the only infographic we need to point out the gun stupidity.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

    •  This infographic is supposed to be authoritative? (1+ / 0-)

      To whom?  The statistics used by the author (college kid) bear no resemblance to the conclusions he's drawn.  It's as though he cites authoritative sources to prove points he's just made up, and they don't.  Apparently it's perfect for the readers of Redstate.  I doubt any of them even looked at the sources of the data the kid cites, the methodology used to collect it or the differences between flat numbers and ratios.  The report is a mess.
