This is drivel. First I'm the only one here that constantly refer to the econometric evidence. That includes reference to all forms, including respectable evidence used by the gun lobby (in particular Kleck. I wouldn't use the likes of Lott as the analysis isn't high powered). Second, I'm from a gun owning background and I have no bias. My stance is purely driven by an evidence-based approach.

One question. Do you believe that people have a right of self defense?
