NYT Article Neutral on Gun Control

Well, that in itself makes it noteworthy.

"Does Gun Control Work? Maybe Not," says the New York Times.

Makes you wonder if the writer got in trouble for not doing the usual hatchet job on gun owners.

Ahh, the very best fireworks of all: when gun-grabbing lefties eat their own words and turn to ash.

Makes you wonder if they know anything about contextual data usage... For instance, they're using statistics for incidents instead of known "perpetrators of incidents". Way to totally ignore politics and socioeconomic factors... I mean, I'm sure a not inconsequential chunk of those incidents were committed by a small percentage of the given percentage of people who had guns. Those of us who believe in gun rights (hopefully!) know more about the responsible care and use of firearms than those who don't believe in it, I tend to think...

Hmmm...

Just pondering.
