    Finally some good gun press!

    First off if this is posted in the wrong place feel free to move it. A friend sent this to me, its a report ordered by O after the SandyHook shooting. But it puts a positive spin on defencive use of a gun by victims of crime.

    Just remember that if you quote these studies you need to be sure to read the entire study, not just the bullet points that some reporters quote. In the report that was commissioned after Sandy Hook there are also several points for the anti crowd too so know your material both pro and con before quoting.

    The report is about as close to being "unbiased" as we can get considering the source so make sure to read the whole thing so you don't get a surprise when the other points are thrown back at you.

    I'm afraid it won't get much press, though. Doesn't fit the narrative.

    The worst I found was that guns are more likely to be used to kill ones self "If" theres a gun in the home! I know that the antis wont read it this way but thats like saying that people who live in tall buildings are more likely to jump to their deaths! Duh!
