They are forgetting to add a box that shows the percentage of CCW permit gun deaths as compared to all gun deaths. Of course, they arent going to add a box that will sink the entire website on its own. They also need to take down the numbers for all cases that are not convictions.

I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
