Do you know how many times an armed â€śgood guyâ€ť prevents something bad with a gun? It is not very often. Often times they make the situation worse.
But hey, it is your 2nd Amendment right (debatable).
According to Gary Kleck, Ph.D., professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida State University in Tallahassee and author of "Point Blank: Guns and Violence in America,â€ť the good guy prevents something bad with a gun over 2.5 million times a year.
Do you consider Kleck's work from 1994 as good and of high quality.
Do you find his method and sample correct?
Well, truthfully, I don't really care about his method or his study. I'm a libertarian, not a scientist. I don't want to live in a country in which the government disarms me because "it knows what's best" for me.
So you just like to use some fake science if the conclusion is in alignment with your political view.
What are you 12? Don't put words in my mouth. It's not fake science. It's good science, but like all science, good or otherwise, it's subject to scrutiny. But as I said, good or bad science, neither will disarm me. If you don't like the particular constitutional amendment in question here, then try to amend it. Rescind it. The framers provided a method for that.
Even if I was 12 I would have seen that you tried to use some "science" to back up your political view.
I question the science, something that a 12 year old can do. I did not question your political view or the US constitution.
I asked if you though the science you used in your argument was valid.
Since a 12 year old can easily see how you tried to get support for your political view with crappy science, how old does that make you??
