The Gun Issues folder was just updated, through yesterday’s articles (end of January).
The latest round of relevant articles…
Australia’s gun ban, and resulting crime statistics, keep coming up. Here’s another look at the statistics there.
While few would argue against a general right to self-defense, the method of doing that is open for discussion. When does your freedom negatively impact others?
The deterrent power of firearms isn’t new…

Black market guns come from three major sources – stolen guns, straw purchases, and purchases that evade background checks. This concerns the last category.
Most of what we cite in rounds has to do with statistics. This last article, perhaps the most important one I’m posting today, has to do with both the question of race, and the human toll that guns can have (over multiple generations).
Update: Photo gallery from The Atlantic, from yesterday. Please note that the reality of gun violence can be disturbing to look at.
