Mother Jones magazine claims to have produced its own study of all public shootings in the last 30 years and concludes: "In not a single case was the killing stopped by a civilian using a gun." YOU SAID, NO ONE WAS KILLED. MY QUESTION: HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY KNOW CIVILIANS DID NOT HELP, AS NO ONE WAS KILLED OR SHOT? YOUR LOGIC DEFIES COMMON SENSE, BUT I GUESS THAT IS WHAT THIS DISAGREEMENT IS ALL ABOUT. THE FOLKS AT MOTHER JONES DON'T SEEM TO HAVE ANY COMMON SENSE!

They survive by pandering to a quasi communistic readership of hedonistic nuts.
Ann picked a good example of their slanted and one sided supposed reporting.

In the wake of a monstrous crime like a madman's mass murder of defenseless women and children at the Newtown, Conn., elementary school, the nation's attention is riveted on what could have been done to prevent such a massacre.

Luckily, some years ago, two famed economists, William Landes at the University of Chicago and John Lott at Yale, conducted a massive study of multiple victim public shootings in the United States between 1977 and 1995 to see how various legal changes affected their frequency and death toll.

Landes and Lott examined many of the very policies being proposed...
