    I just read that on CNN.com and I thought of something I saw on the web awhile ago....

    Torture numbers, and they'll confess to anything. ~Gregg Easterbrook

    Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital. ~Aaron Levenstein


    I can never wrap my hands around things based upon statistics and statistics alone. I know a lot of politicians can do it only for the sake of their own devices and causes unfortunately.

    I try and base my decisions on what my common sense tells me is the truth. Had these so-called "victims", the ones who are true victims, not some gang-banger homies with chips on their shoulders, but true-to-life victims of "gun-violence", had they been willing and able to defend themselves appropriately with a firearm maybe not have ended up as "victims"?

    There's a "statistic" we'll probably never see on CNN....... Unless your a wheelchair-bound person from NY.
