In short, despite the best efforts of the authors, the poorly designed study didn’t even clearly conclude what the resulting headlines proclaim.
Rational arguments in support of gun rights are excluded or denigrated while other research, facing the same alleged shortcomings, is held up as fact. Inane and widely rejected research is presented..
It would seem to me that an intellectually honest educated man without an agenda would use this opportunity to educate those not as intelligent as he.
Why cannot liberals tell the truth? We saw it in the Kavanaugh hearings and now we are seeing a blatant example in a recent bogus mass shooting research paper by Adam Lankford.
One of the more common claims in the gun control debate is that the United States has more mass public shootings than any other countries. That is FAKE NEWS!
Wintemute moves the goalpost from “comprehensive background checks” to “permits to purchase,” which would require law-abiding citizens to get permission from the government before they buy a gun.
The CDC nonfatal injury data is completely unreliable – as the CDC itself admits. Noted anti-gun researcher David Hemenway is quoted as saying, “No one should trust the CDC’s nonfatal firearm injury

Given how often questions about defensive gun usage come up, around 116,000 per year to millions, one may wonder why this data was never acknowledged.
Environics took 131 of 1,510 total respondents, and claimed those 131 people represent the views of 2.1 MILLION licensed Canadian gun owners…
The researchers obviously have not attended a NRA Annual Meeting and basic logic & math calls their findings into serious question.
Since New Jersey Democrats are essentially running out of ideas for new gun laws that turn law-abiding citizens into incarcerated criminals, they have introduced a new scheme to undermine the 2A..
Scientific American is following the old CDC model of picking a desired outcome and selectively promoting views and data which support the objective…
Anyone who follows firearm issues knows the “background check” results are totally bogus, and that inaccuracy should cast serious doubt on the “health plan” results as well.
