Quote from: Big J on Today at 13:09:55 PMI agree. Let's say the number is 1.22 million defensive uses. Right smack in the middle. Let's say 5% of those uses save a life. Still at 61,000 lives saved is almost double the amount loss. As someone in the scientific field you very well know you cannot talk about a solution without evaluating the outcomes on the other side. Some of the defensive uses save a lot of people.
Quote from: Big J on Today at 11:11:44 AMThe article fails to mention the key stat about defensive uses with Firearms. Which FBI did a study and claims it's between 60,000-2.5 million per year. 39,000 deaths with a firearm with most of those being suicide. You do the math on if we are better with or without.
