Gun control: Data suggest guns do in fact kill people | The Economist

PREPPING for an appearance on Dutch TV this week to talk about the new gun-control measures that take effect in Maryland starting October 1st has afforded me a priceless opportunity to watch lots of gun-rights videos. My favourite, I think, is Ice-T’s appearance on CNN, where he seems not to grasp the concept of laws. (“I’ll give up my gun when everybody else does,” he says, with a wry, superior glare. Well, ah, yes. That’s how laws work; they impose the same rules on everyone, all at once, to overcome prisoners’ dilemmas like this one.) Another good one is this savvy, funny rabble-rousing speech by Stewart Rhodes, founder of the Oath Keepers, at a rally in Idaho. Mr Rhodes opens up by scolding the crowd for being too lightly armed: “Where’s your rifles? You know what your handgun is for, right? (Scattered crowd response.) To fight your way to your rifle!”
