83. you disagree???

"It'sjust as a matter of logic that private party sales are more likely to result in criminal use of firearms, but it's an inference at this point," he said.

Hmm. Those "law-abiding gun owners" may acquire their firearms from licensed dealers.

The criminals can't.

Hmm. Now, how do criminals get their guns? Private party sales, maybe? Would that not kinda automatically mean that a larger proportion of private party sales than of licensed dealer sales is to criminals?

Can't see any way around that one, myself.

Given as how guns don't really drop like lawn darts from the sky.
