Damn those right wing gun nuts at east coast elitist universities!
Uh oh, what are liberals going to say now that this study came out from Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavard??
Don't know, but I can guess...
Really does not matter what a study says, because the truthers are an irrational lot. It is a queer religion and irrational fear rules their day.

Harvard study? You guys make me weep for MSU. The article was published in a Harvard journal (you know, a COLLECTION of articles by authors and academics from all over); the authors are from Pacific Research Institute, San Francisco and Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC Canada.
Pacific Research Institute and Simon Fraser University are decidedly NOT Harvard. Kudos to Harvard, though, for publishing a study at odds with (as I understand it) the weight of academic evidence. It helps to dispel the notion that academia is some kind of leftist conspiracy.
If I have time, I will try to look into this more. No promises.

The plot thickens. Not only is this NOT a Harvard study, the journal it appeared in is only NOMINALLY a Harvard journal (i.e., a journal administered and published by the faculty).
"The Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy is a student-edited law review of conservative and libertarian legal scholarship. It was establisheded by Harvard Law School students Spencer Abraham and Stephen Eberhard in 1978, leading to the founding of the Federalist Society, for which it is the official journal." (Wikipedia)
I guess that explains why a study done by two professors from such obscure universities got to publish something under the "Harvard" brand.
Kates went to Yale, and Mauser went to UC Irvine.
When you can't respond to the facts, attack the source. It's an age old play out of the liberal handbook.
Probably because the US has so many guns already.
Waiting for you to post how you've been shot so we can have a good emoticon driven laugh about it.
I'll make sure to let the executor of my trust know that he needs to do so should it occur.
I'm with you, Travelin. We need MORE guns. Let's start by giving one to everybody who boards an airplane so we're better equipped to thwart Muslim terrorists. Let's hand them out at movie theaters and shopping centers, too. Nothing fancy ... just a few semi-automatic weapons should keep everybody safe.
And I want a shoulder missile launcher. The government has much more sophisticated weaponry than when the Second Amendment was drafted, so when they come to get me I want to be ready!
Do you have an ounce of integrity? Or maybe you're just not very smart. I was responding to the thread title, which referenced a Harvard Study, and posts like this one:
"Uh oh, what are liberals going to say now that this study came out from Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavard??"
Hey, be careful what you shoot at. Most things in here don't react too well to bullets.
