Thanks for the response.
If you’d like to show some mathematics supporting a bivariate correlation between gun ownership and homicide, please do so. Put it up on Medium.
This article was not a “solutions” article, it was a media criticism article. All of the issues you bring up are covered elsewhere in the series of articles. Consider reading through them.
In particular, comparisons to other countries are meaningless and measures to address gun proliferation cannot work, mathematically speaking:
The Magic Gun Evaporation Fairy
Three Reasons Why Gun Ownership Rates From Other Countries Don’t Matter
The real problem is suicide and measures the left propose will not address that real problem:
The Left Is Making the Wrong Case on Gun Deaths. Here’s a Better Case.
The gun conversation in this country has real, systemic problems.
We’re tremendously safe from gun homicides by any reasonable historical measure, except for young black men, who are in a seriously bad situation:
The Gun Homicide Epidemic Isn’t
Or, “How lying about reality doesn’t engender cross-cultural cooperation.”
And “overthrowing the government” is a red herring to begin with:
The Surprisingly Solid Mathematical Case of the Tin Foil Hat Gun Prepper
Or, “Who Needs an AR-15 Anyway?”
All that said, there are definitely real solutions we can derive, for the real problems we do face, if we properly use mathematics to identify those problems, which we clearly cannot trust the media to do properly:
The Gun Solution
We are nearing the end of our series on guns, in which we use critical reasoning skills and actual data to formulate…
…and the reason so many people don’t understand the true nature of these problems, is because the media is not incentivized to represent them properly. They are incentivized to drive secondary linkback traffic in order to farm click money, so they waltz the public down a rabbit hole that’s not supported by the math:
Thanks for reading.
