    ...The liberal mind is truly a wonder. I’m not sure what sort of mental contortion a progressive must go through to reason that it’s easier to disarm the world rather than make sure the world is able to defend itself from aggression. But I am certain I can’t replicate the thought process. Maybe I’m just too simple. Or maybe they are simply nuts. The data seem to support my way of thinking. Take, for example, a Harvard study. For those keeping score, Harvard is hardly right-wing central. This study found that the liberal notion that “more guns mean more deaths and that fewer guns, therefore, mean fewer deaths” is completely wrong. One example from the study shows numbers for Eastern European gun ownership and corresponding murder rates. In Russia, where the rate of gun ownership is 4,000 per 100,000 inhabitants, the murder rate was 20.52 per 100,000 in 2002. That same year in Finland, where the rater of gun ownership is exceedingly higher, 39,000 per 100,000, the murder rate was nearly ZERO, at 1.98 per 100,000. But that’s Europe right? What about the United States of America, or, as liberal call it, the WILD, WILD WEST?...

    Opinion piece, albeit sourced, and linked.
