The Worst Possible Case For Gun Control

Renowned criminologist Gary Kleck, a professor at Florida State University, is out with a new study, a story about which is published in American Behavioral Scientist, stating that the specific gun control measures proposed in the aftermath of high-profile school shootings were largely irrelevant and almost certainly could not have prevented the incidents or reduced their death tolls.

Though it is an emotional catalyst, Kleck concludes that "mass school shootings provided the worst possible basis for supporting gun control."

A very compelling study. Read it and pass it on.
