The hits just keep on coming for those poor benighted fools who still bitterly cling to the notion that "gun control" is the correct course of action. It is that time of the year again, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has released their 2011 Uniform Crime Report; the highlights? 3.8% drop in violent crime from last year, and a 15.4% drop over the past five years, and all this despite (or, perhaps, because?) of [...]
Over the weekend, the below email came in from Miguel at Gun Free Zone:
Have you done a correlation/whatever is called between the number of guns in a country and the # murders and/or violent crimes?
The attachment is a list of countries and their number of guns according to the Small Arms Survey which the antis can’t bitch about because it is a group on their side. I used this wikipedia link to [...]
I do so love it when people take one of my very few good ideas and put them into practice, and, yes, I do mean that quite literally without a shred of sarcasm implied or stated.
Everyone knows my particular fondness for pretty pictures to simplify and express otherwise complicated concepts, but I will freely admit that I exclusively focus on things that are specifically of interest to me, and I only have so [...]
Given my rather public love affair with pretty pictures, at least when it comes to demonstrating / illustrating / explaining concepts and arguments that might otherwise be rather difficult to express, it should come as no surprise that I thoroughly approve of this series of posts written by George at Newbie Shooter:

Regular readers should be intimately familiar with my belief that, in general, people tend to learn better through pictures than through explanations. Of course, given my occasional wall-o’-text posts, I frequently fail at applying that belief to real-world scenarios, but, in my defense, I have crafted more than a few posts showing the failure of "gun control" graphically rather than textually.
Today’s exercise in visual learning, however, comes by way of Joe Huffman and [...]
I would just like to take a moment to thank:

By now, everyone should be aware of the fact that I like using graphics to explain/illustrate complex concepts in relatively simple forms, so it should come as no surprise that I thoroughly approve of this rendition of our nation’s debt.
Make no mistake – this is a debt that the previous generations, and now my generation, have carefully and deliberately foisted upon future generations through the creation, perpetuation, and encouragement of all of the [...]
Through various graphical representations (inspired and created by a fellow pro-rights advocate), we firearm owners have been attempting to express to the public as a whole how irrational "gun control" is given its purported goals – if "gun control" supporters (otherwise known as anti-rights cultists ‘round these parts) really wanted to reduce the criminal use of firearms, why are their proposals largely things that will not significantly impact criminals, but will detrimentally impact the tens [...]
