A Trigger-Free Safety Zone.
As Mark Twain said, "There are lies, damned lies, and statistics"Sugarmann is comparing apples and oranges. If he matches other demographics in making his comparison his assertion that CCW permmit holders are more likely to commit suicide falls apart.
Have you ever seen this graphichttp://www.nytimes.com/imagepages/2007/04/21/weekinreview/20070422_MARSH_GRAPHIC.htmlof the 81 "gun deaths" per day average, 25 are white men over the age of 40. Who are your most common CCW holders? White men over 40. He just proved that white men over 40 kill themselves more often than anyone else. In other news, the sky is blue, water is wet, and women have secrets.
I believe his math is also wrong. He's giving rate per 100,000 license holders vs. rate per 100,000 general population.I point this out:http://themadmanraves.blogspot.com/2010/12/vpc-misleads-on-mi-concealed-handgun.html
Seriously how does the Joyce Foundation justify paying this idiot 145K a year? Seriously, do you know how hard it is to find people that shameless? They've got to pay him well, or he'll run for congress or something.
