Can’t say I disagree with any of that, sir.

On this topic, it’s tar babies all the way down. The main thing that frustrates me, is that it’s such a tar baby of a topic that we don’t really talk about it, despite it being the foundational number of the “gun deaths" problem. And our unwillingness to talk about it makes it easy for media organizations to co opt the numbers into unrelated narratives, such as meaningless and ineffectual rifle bans.
