    John Tesh says 1 in 4 gun owners gets shot......

    My wife just heard on "the john tesh radio show" that statistics show that 1 in 4 gun owners ends up shot.????? where the heck would he come up with those #'s? That's more ammo for her not to like me carrying. If it is illegal to register guns in a lot of states, how do they know how many gun owners there are? Averaging???? Your thoughts........

    It's a good face for radio, but not for stats.

    96.85% of statistics are made up on the spot.

    Well that should solve the problem for anti-gun types. We will all be gone soon. DC membership must be falling fast.

    Considering that most estimates place over 100 million Americans as gun owners, that would mean that 25,000,000 people have either been shot or soon will.

    Common sense would show that to be false. No way do we have that many people getting shot.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    If she heard him correctly, that is complete, unmitigated balderdash.

    It is generally agreed that roughly half the households in the US have at least one gun. That's half of 55 million; let's be conservative and say 25 million households represented by just ONE person. So if 1 in 4 gets shot, that 6.25 million gunshot victims.

    Sorry, there are not 6.25 million civilian (leave the military out of this) gunshot victims alive or dead on US soil.

    John Tesh should undergo waterboarding until he pronounces on the air that motor vehicles, cigarettes and "medical misadventure" maim and kill more American civilians than guns do every year. Maybe then your wife would believe that.

    I love his show but he is a germ-a-phobe. Always coming up with new places that have the highest concentration of germs. According to him, we should all be sick.

    If 1 in 4 gun owners get shot, that would mean that like 10+ million of us end up shot. I don't think so.

    Statistics show that 80% of the time talk show hosts are wrong, 63% of the time.

    Well, let's see...80 - 63 = 17...does that mean that radio talk show hosts are right 17% of the time? I don't think it could be that high.

    American pianist and composer of pop and contemporary Christian music, as well as a radio host and television presenter.

    Those are not exactly credentials for an article in "Handguns are Dangerous, Trust Me", but wait he has a Radio Show and does get on T.V., so there are those who will follow idiots like this blindly.
