5. What are you saying has to be refuted?

You STILL have not stated what inference you gather from this.

Please actually read the passages you have quoted. The first ends:
(Note that insufficient evidence to determine effectiveness should not be interpreted as evidence of ineffectiveness.) This report briefly describes how the reviews were conducted, summarizes the Task Force findings, and provides information regarding needs for future research.


And the ending of the second:
the complex methodological problems inherent in unraveling causal relationships between firearms policy and violence have not been fully considered or adequately addressed.


Also, as stated earlier, the CRS also bemoans the lack of data even from official crime and mortality figures.

Perhaps you had best read this item from the Wall Street Journal Entitled Lack of Data Slows Studies of Gun Control and Crime
