Success of Anti-Gun Program Disputed

It's nice to see NRA management's Project Gulag being described as what it is -- an ANTI-GUN program.

Check out the quote by the NRA flack. Instead of refuting the study with facts and counter-statistics, he attacks the character of the study authors, calling them ivory tower stuffed shirts.

This is the typical tactic of someone who cant refute an argument with truth and logic, so he resorts to name-calling.

This is the best they can do? Just pathetic.

"Since the Government's 'total ban' five years ago, there are more and more guns being used by more and more criminals in more and more crimes. Now, in the wake of Birmingham's New Year bloodbath, there are calls for the total ban to be made even more total: if the gangs refuse to obey the existing laws, we'll just pass more laws for them not to obey. According to a UN survey from last month, England and Wales now have the highest crime rate of the world's 20 leading nations..."
