155. sample frame error

and a pathetically desperate one at that. Yes, some guns likely come from Soviet and Cuban supplied arms to Central America, but the US provided far, far more. Your entire analysis is based on the most desperate effort to prove the gun industry in this country has nothing to do with violence in Mexico and to cling to propaganda that you think enables you to justify gun proliferation. Obviously the truth means nothing do you, so you will continue to provide fraudulent information and try to pass it off as fact. I will just inform you that I will do my best to ensure everyone sees exactly what they are dealing with as you continue to peddle your lies.
Sorry, most of the guns used in Mexico are not even made in the US. The truth means a lot to me. I just happen to know what I'm talking about. And yes, the Soviet Bloc did supply weapons, but many guns are US made and stolen from Guatemalan military armories.

You obviously know nothing about basic statistics or the scientific method. No sampling is ever comprehensive. 26% is a very large statistical sample. To ignore the evidence from that sampling and then claim it says the opposite of what it actually does is a nothing short of fraud. You would be laughed out of any academic discipline for dong that sort of thing. It's the kind of fraud that would ruin a person's reputation for life and might even puncture tenure. Ask Buzz Clik. I believe he is a statistician or works in some discipline that uses statistics.
I never claimed to be an academic, but it has nothing to do with statistical sampling. The fallacy is yours for the reasons I explained. I explained how an intelligence analyst or an investigator would look at it, and they do. BTW, I do think it is an example of sample frame error for the reasons I explained. In fact, I'm certain of it. Just search images for "guns confiscated from drug cartels" you will find a lot of pictures of machine guns, RPGs, gold plated pistols in calibers common in Latin America, not very rare here, so I know what I'm talking about.

Real life is much more complex and nuanced than a math exercise.
