The BJS report was released in May 2013, but was under-reported amid the push for new gun control laws. The information in it is detrimental to many of the gun control arguments which were being propounded at the time.
For instance, while Democrats in various parts of the country were pushing legislation to end the “gun show loophole,” the BJS report showed that “among state prison inmates who possessed a gun at the time of [their] offense, less than 2 percent bought their gun at a flea market or gun show.”
– The crime argument is a red herring. Even if ‘gun control’ could be proven to reduce crime it would still be evil.
