    It's been posted on every gun or 2A related site and blog known to man including here like four times atleast. :p

    It still doesn't matter though because folk simply say who is John Stossel and why is he of any note?
    It's just another media piece and everybody knows _everyone_ in the media are complete idiots....except for of course the all knowing and completely reasonable well informed famous researcher Rosie O'Donnell. :\

    I know it has been posted elsewhere, but I didn't remember seeing it here. I searched by the youtube link & title but didn't find it. Maybe it was posted through a ABC link.

    And I think it does mater, because you usually don’t see this kind of thing anywhere besides Fox News. Some people will discount it if they see it on Fox, but take notice if it is on one of the other networks.

    Always nice to see 'fair & balanced' reporting outside of Fox News...and that doesn't happen often!

    I have to disagree with the title of this post. It's no myth: Gun control DOES reduce crime. Here's how: if you control your gun well, your shots are more accurate. With accurate shots, you're more likely to kill the BG, instead of wounding him or missing altogether. And if the BG is dead, he can't commit more crimes (most criminals are repeat offenders, after all).
