I know that states with more gun control have less gun deaths when you include suicides, and states with weaker gun control laws have more gun violence. I know there's some evidence that guns are used far more frequently to threaten than protect.

And I know that mass shootings with assault weapons tend to be deadlier. And "Right To Carry" laws increase aggravated assault.

I also know that gun rights advocates are terrified of researching gun violence, and that most of them think they're less dangerous than video games. But yeah, I'm the person who's just believing what I'm told.
Fancy cut-n-paste, Iím sure the girls at HuffPo are giving you a round of high-fives as I type this response. But, um, if youíre looking to prove you know something about guns, how they function and what makes one different from another, and that you arenít just repeating rhetoric from anti-gun partisans posting links to their sites is doing the exact opposite.
It is funny though that you spent all that time digging up those links yet still refuse to answer one very simple question that youíve been dodging since the Sandy Hook tragedy.
