Reflections on the intersection of economics, history, politics, psychology and science

Dramatic Statement of the Obvious

This will come as no surprise to listeners of The Boiling Frog podcast (especially those who listened to Jumping to Conclusions), but this Stanford University study is yet another in a never ending list of research that confirms that we are not protected by owning a gun — quite the opposite. As the first line states, “people who live with a handgun owner are at far greater risk of dying by homicide than those who don’t.” And as you’ll see in the article, the feeble attempt by a gun rights advocate to criticize the study is laughable.

Listen to Jumping to Conclusions to understand why.
