An examination of the effects of concealed weapons laws and assault weapons bans on state-level murder rates

 

The purpose of the present study is to determine the effects of state-level assault weapons bans and concealed weapons laws on state-level murder rates. Using data for the period 1980 to 2009 and controlling for state and year fixed effects, the results of the present study suggest that states with restrictions on the carrying of concealed weapons had higher gun-related murder rates than other states. It was also found that assault weapons bans did not significantly affect murder rates at the state level. These results suggest that restrictive concealed weapons laws may cause an increase in gun-related murders at the state level.

 

 

Cue the hoplophobes with their outdated, gun-control funded, biased "data" showing opposite results, of course.  :rolleyes:

 

(They'll try to lump in suicides with gun murders, a failed tactic that has no place in a study of guns and crime).

Wow, the Red Herring appears in the very next post!

 

Failure, illustrated again by Mitchum.

 

A Red Herring is a fallacy in which an irrelevant topic is presented in order to divert attention from the original issue. The basic idea is to "win" an argument by leading attention away from the argument and to another topic. This sort of "reasoning" has the following form:

 

Topic A is under discussion.
Topic B is introduced under the guise of being relevant to topic A (when topic B is actually not relevant to topic A).
Topic A is abandoned.

This sort of "reasoning" is fallacious because merely changing the topic of discussion hardly counts as an argument against a claim.

“What have I got in my pocket?" he said aloud. He was talking to himself, but Gollum thought it was a riddle, and he was frightfully upset.
"Not fair! not fair!" he hissed. "It isn't fair, my precious, is it, to ask us what it's got in it's nassty little pocketsess?”

This is amusing. The gun nuts prohibit the government from funding gun studies because they feel they can be manipulated. And then they want us to accept a gun study that they like. Make up your minds, fellas.

The filth of ACORN has endured and has metastasized. 

 

"The spirit of ACORN endured. Its life force is bound to the Government, and the Government survived. ACORN has returned. Its Orcs have multiplied. Its fortress in the White House is rebuilt in the land of Washington, DC. ACORN needs only this Government to cover all the lands of a second darkness."

BerthAzog 'The defiler' Lewis, back for the sequel. :D

 

 

ACORN’s former leader Bertha Lewis played critical, behind-the-scenes roles in getting Bill de Blasio elected mayor and Kenneth Thompson for Brooklyn district attorney, the New York Post reported.

 

“ACORN’s successor group, New York Communities for Change, endorsed de Blasio for mayor in early spring, and a Lewis protege, NYCC field director Harold Miller, helped run de Blasio’s field operation,” the New York Post said.

This same institution was the source of the "90% of all Americans favor background checks" data as well.

 

Did you (or do you still) accept that data?

A Jeebies thread. Hey Jeebs here's why your assertion with your little study as support  can't be considered as fact. Your little studies don't take into account other factors that affect murder numbers. Such as sentencing, policing methods, etc. Which means basically that your study has as much credibility as you do. I.E None


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It has a nice sound to it

Suggs has signed. I've never been so happy to be wrong

Don't blame me, I voted Bob Barr:cool:
