52. A study shows that
many guns are purchased from private vendors at gun shows (and they document that thoroughly, no problems so far).

They then use the stat that many guns used in crimes are purchased or acquired from private vendors. If true then no problem.

Then they make the huge leap to assume that the only private vendors in existence are the ones at gun shows. Big problem.

If they hadn't come to the "right" conclusion, namely that guns = evil then this study would have been put up only as an example on how not to put together such a report.

My new study: Fact 1) most cocaine is grown in south/middle america.

Fact 2) Most south/middle americans speak spanish.

Conclusion: Spanish causes cocaine. If we were to prevent people from learning that language we could win the war on drugs.
