    A much-heralded and widely cited study of 171 countries over nearly a half century purports to show more guns mean more mass shootings, but critics say the report uses bad methodology in a way that rigs the results.

    The study by Adam Lankford, a criminal justice professor at the University of Alabama, was published in the journal Violence and Victims in January has beencited by media outlets -- including The New Yorker, The Washington Post andTime magazine. But the study, formally published earlier this year after a draft was released in academic circles, has raised questions about what critics consider dubious methodology.

    “The Lankford ‘study’ is nothing more than junk science disguised as research, and never should have been published in a responsible scholarly journal,” Florida State University criminology professor Gary Kleck told FoxNews.com.

    At her DNC acceptance speech, Hillary told a story of making it possible for a poor suffering handicapped girl in a wheelchair in New Bedford, Massachusetts to get transportation to school:

    Hillary says:
    "I remember meeting a young girl in a wheelchair on the small back porch of her house. She told me how badly she wanted to go to school — it just didn’t seem possible in those days... So we gathered facts. We built a coalition. And our work helped convince Congress to ensure access to education for all students with disabilities.”

    Only problem is that in 1973,
    the New Bedford Public Schools already had wheelchair accessibility, and had a budget for vans with drivers and provided services to students with disabilities.
