The NRA gets it half right. Guns don’t kill people.
They just forgot this part: Gun owners kill people.
It’s what more than 3 decades of data clearly show.
As gun ownership in the United States fell by 33% between 1980 and 2014, the gun death rate fell by 30%.
That’s a nearly perfect 1-to-1 relationship.
Frankly, it defies reason to believe that it’s purely correlative, not causal.
Logically–like completely logically–when more Americans have guns, more get killed by guns; when fewer Americans have guns, fewer get killed by guns.
Don’t overthink it.
