Default Gun Facts

This is a very good read. Instead of arguing over things, look them up.



Gun Facts version 5.1 <- Just click and save!

INTRODUCTION: Gun Facts is a free e-book that debunks common myths about gun control. It is intended as a reference guide for journalists, activists, politicians, and other people interested in restoring honesty to the debate about guns, crime, and the 2nd Amendment.

Gun Facts has 98 pages of information. Divided into chapters based on gun control topics (assault weapons, ballistic finger printing, firearm availability, etc.), finding information is quick and easy.

Each chapter lists common gun control myths, then lists a number of documented and cited facts (with nearly 500 detailed footnotes). Thus when a neighbor, editor or politician repeats some sound bite about firearm control policy, you can quickly find that myth then rebuke with real information.

Gun control myths debunked in Gun Facts include (but are in no way limited to)
Gun Shows
Assault Weapons
Sniping Rifles - Sniper Rifles
Handguns For Women Handgun Sales
Violence and Violent Crime
2nd Amendment Issue
"Pocket Rockets" and "Saturday Night Specials"
Concealed Carry and Concealed Weapons Permits
Licensing and Registration
Firearm Deaths (Homicide, Accidents)
Social Costs of Guns
Children and Guns
Automatic Weapons
50 Caliber Rifles
Microstamping
Ballistic Fingerprinting
Assault Weapons Ban
Crime Gun Traces
International Gun Ownership and Crime
Gun Dealers
Gun Control Statistics
Deadly Force Encounters
Guns, Crime, Criminology and Crime Prevention (Self Defense)
Firearm Availability
Guns and Police (Law Enforcement/LEO)

Very good document. That it backs everything up with references is fantastic.

I think this is the fundamental problem with many journalists, activists and politicians. Quite often they never let facts get in the way of what they want. However, it does make a good reference for discussion and debate for those who are simply uninformed and spouting off what they hear from those mentioned above.
