For John, BLUF: "For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong."—H. L. Mencken. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This 13 August 2019 blog post at InstaPundit, by Professor Glenn Reynolds, highlights an article in The Washington Post, I used to think gun control was the answer. My research told me otherwise. The Author, Leah Libresco, is a statistician and former newswriter at FiveThirtyEight, a data journalism site. She is the author of “Arriving at Amen.”
Here is the key excerpt:
The thing to understand is that gun control isn’t about saving lives. It’s about humiliating the deplorables and keeping them in their place. It’s culture war of the crassest kind.Then there is Senator Ed Markey's Primary opponent in 2020, Ms Shannon Liss-Riordan, Esq. She has come out for abolishing the Second Amendment.
