And the best rebuttal to his garbage was Dr. Kleck's POINT BLANK (Kleck is winner of the 1993 Michael J. Hindelang Award of the American Society of Criminology). Kleck had shown that 2.5 MILLION crimes are thwarted by private citizens pulling a gun in self-defense. The Clinton Admin didn't (wouldn't ?) believe his numbers from his exhaustive study. They did their own and found it was "only" 1.5 million. Even if you split the difference, 2 MILLION crimes are stopped with a citizen exercising their constitutional and God given right EVERY YEAR. Yes, some people with guns do kill others. But more lives are saved by guns. WAAY more than most can imagine. I used to like Costas. Not any more.
