Probably no one because it's either been refuted before or doesn't apply. Things like combining homicides with suicides into a "gun death" statistic that has nothing to do with current proposed legislation, or artificially combining two stats (guns used in self defense by women versus guns used to kill women) that don't correlate to imply a nonexistent causation, using stats for all firearms to justify banning a specific subset of one type of firearm that has been shown not to be widely used or including batshit crazy ideas from "the right" as if any sane person takes them seriously.
