That Flushing Sound (or John Rosenthal Squawks)

John Rosenthal, head of.... well no group anymore, imparts this bit of wisdom.

"But outside of Massachusetts and other progressive pockets, 33 states, including Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont make guns readily available from private dealers without ID or background checks. Not only do these states have remarkably higher firearm fatality rates, but they undermine stricter, more responsible laws in bordering states"
 But as LeagleEagle 45 notes in the comments:

Massachusetts 2010 homicide rate: 3.2 per 100,000
Maine 2010 Homicide rate:1.8 per 100,000
New Hampshire 2010 homicide rate: 1.0 per 100,000
Vermont 2010 homicide rate: 1.1 per 100,000

So again proving that even if John says is true, it just shows that anti-gun advocates don't really care about reducing deaths, just guns.

Not to mention there is no such thing as a "private dealer" if you are in the business of selling arms, you are licensed, otherwise you are a citizen, selling private property, which should never be subject to government intrusion.

Yeah but here in Massachusetts people get STABBED a lot.

That's just a better, more civil way to murder!

Only "Gun Death" counts!
