VPC in Tennessee

The Violence Policy Center googled up another study. This new study says that TN ranks 7th in gun related deaths. MKS takes some issue with it. I am amazed that the press parrots their talking points when time after time, it has been shown what utter bunk the VPC’s alleged studies are.

Bonus quote of the day:

“These people are on the losing side of history,” said Liston Matthews, a Knoxville gun owner who blogs on Second Amendment issues and helped push for passage of Tennessee’s carry permit law in the 1990s.

Wrong side, indeed.

And who is this Liston Matthews? I can’t believe that there’s a gun blogger in Knoxville that I do not know.

    Well it tends to be blogs and bloggers who rip the studies apart, and the MSM would rather that bloggers just not exist so they ignore them entirely.

    So its really just different sides of the same “ignore reality” coin, if you ask me.

    Maybe they’re including the men under 21 who died in Tennessee during the War of Northern Aggression in their statistics.
