A “study” commissioned by anti gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns suggests that gun control leads to crime reductions. When I heard this claim, I was rather surprised, given the fact that the most violent areas have the most restrictions on gun ownership, while areas with fewer gun restrictions have less crime. I was preparing to write an in-depth discussion of the flaws with this rather biased study, but John Lott has already done a great job addressing the issue. I encourage those who are interested to read his post on the subject.
My thanks to Danny for pointing out this “study”.
