Academic Logic on Guns


Jacob Sullum summarizes a study:

In Philadelphia, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania find, possessing a gun is strongly associated with getting shot. Since “guns did not protect those who possessed them,” they conclude, “people should rethink their possession of guns.”

He headlines the post, “Why Skydivers Would Be Better Off Without Parachutes.”

UPDATE: Eugene Volokh has a lot more (arguably more than this ridiculous argument deserves).
