Sowell also says that “federal studies over the years” have removed all doubt about the futility of gun control laws. Which studies?
Sowell says “some years back…” a professor and gun control zealot produced a study that got him fired, and then the 9th Circuit later relied on it. Huh? Which professor? Which ‘study’? Which court case? Any discussion on ‘gun control’ ought to be factually based. In that regard, Sowell’s article is basically useless. Guns are already regulated. The question is whether more or different regulation would reduce the 10,000 or so Americans who are killed every year by guns and/or make it more difficult for would-be mass killers to get their hands on assault weapons.
