You know, the Kellerman study is just more of the same.  The anti gunners come up with a premise and then go about trying to prove it, rather than looking at the facts and accepting that they are dead wrong on this issue.  

Same with Michael Bellesiles trying to prove that there were few guns in colonial America and that those in civilian hands were not in working order most of the time.  There's only one little thing standing in the way of his premise: the Revolutionary War.   Apparently he'd have us believe that the militia fought the Redcoats with rocks and clubs.

Fortunately, he had enough cojones to resign when faced with his own deception.  Others proffer falsehoods that are just as serious, and these are accepted by the public and even the media.  EVERYONE hears the 43:1 statistic referred to as fact.  But, even Kellerman himself later retracted it, lowering the figure to something like 2:1.

Of course, most news organizations weren't notified or don't care.  So, 43:1 remains a "fact". because that's what we've been told by the gatekeepers.  It was even used as a talking point on this website.

These are the people working tirelessly around the clock to take away your rights, folks.
