Sorry, Reiver is not interested in evidence or facts but only with peer reviewed papers that support his own bias. The fact that violent crime dropped the last 10 years even though gun ownership skyrocketed makes no difference to him because you did not show the reverse based on a peer reviewed paper that he likes.

And this is an essential feature of Progressivism that all Americans need to understand.
