The Top Five Ways Anti-Gun Advocates Misrepresent Statistics

In the wake of major mass shootings in Nevada and Texas this year, a common trope of gun control supporters is to claim that the statistics weigh overwhelmingly in their favor. It’s a familiar line from those on the political left: We have all the science; you neanderthals are just ignoring it. Although I hesitate to provide any traffic to Vox, this article by German Lopez (a man once described as “monumentally unqualified for most anything other the working at Vox“) gives a pretty good overview of the arguments and date marshaled by anti-gun to support their policy sawhorses. At first, it seems like a lot.

The problem here is that statistics are infinitely manipulable, and the gun control crowd has consistently exploited that fact to their advantage. Some of their errors involve the subtle manipulation of variables, but others are fairly brazen — like the following:

Here ya go, Alemaster

These never before seen pictures from the Vietnam War show the spectacular artwork that helicopter pilots painted on their choppers during the brutal conflict.
Images daubed on helicopters included popular cartoon characters such as the Incredible Hulk, Road Runner and the Green Hornet.
Some of the artworks are threatening, including a white skull painted on a red background, but most are playful and innocent.
Other pictures show soldiers posing next to The Good Ship Lollipop and The Magical Mystery Tour as they prepare for deployment, in what would prove to be one of the most brutal wars in recent memory.
The remarkable images appear in a new book, Vietnam War Army Helicopter Nose Art, by John Brennan.
It offers a unique insight into the conflict, which raged from November 1, 1955 to April 30, and killed nearly four million people.

Semper Fi

An 83-year-old retired Marine kept a promise he made to a fellow officer while they were hunkered down in a bunker during the Vietnam War.
Retired Marine Master Sgt. William H. Cox and Retired Marine First Sgt. James ‘Hollie’ Hollingsworth were shielding themselves from rockets and mortars in 1968 as they were fighting in the Marble Mountains during the war on New Year’s Eve.
The two men, who were strangers to each other, had decided if they made it out of the bunker and survived the war, they would contact each other every New Year’s Eve.
For the next five decades they kept that promise – every New Year’s Eve they would catch up.
Earlier this year, Cox traveled from Piedmont, South Carolina, to see Hollingsworth, 80, in Hephzibah, Georgia.
The 83-year-old made the trip so that he could say goodbye to his dear friend who was dying.

Get your 80s while you can

Two of the guns used in the Tehama County mass shooting on Tuesday were homemade, while the other two were not registered to the shooter, officials said.

There also was a restraining order issued in February that prohibited the shooter from owning guns.

Those were some of the revelations made Wednesday about the mass shooting at Rancho Tehama on Tuesday that left six people dead, including the shooter, and 10 others injured.

*****

I can damned sure see the Left using this as a way to put a ban on making your own when they realize that anybody can bypass the system to get a rifle.
Felon? Restraining order? Flat out psycho? No problem! Build your own!
To be honest with you, I’m surprised they haven’t figured this out long ago and outlawed 80% lowers. Of course, if you’ve got a milling machine or know somebody that has one you don’t need an 80, you can do it with just a billet, but minor details never stopped the Left before.

Even more Florida news!

It’s unclear who leaped first, the couple or the frog.

When Claire Sheats and her husband sat down for a meal at a local Waffle House in Tallahassee last week, it wasn’t long before they noticed they had company — a dead frog floating in their iced water.

But it was too late, her husband had already taken a sip.
