Gun Facts 4.1

Gun Facts is a free e-book that debunks common myths about gun control. It is intended as a reference guide for journalist, activists, politicians, and other people interested in restoring honesty to the debate about guns, crime, and the 2nd Amendment.

Gun Facts has 84 pages of information. Divided into chapters based on gun control topics (assault weapons, ballistic finger printing, firearm availability, etc.), finding information is quick and easy.

Each chapter lists common gun control myths, then lists a number of documented and cited facts that directly dispute the gun control claim. Thus when a neighbor, editor, or politician repeats some slogan propagated by gun control advocacy groups, you can quickly find that myth and straighten their ass out!.

How hard would it have been for them to make the links available? I have this problem with every edition of this damn thing.

It would be nice if they link to the source data, not just provide the footnote reference.

I have the same problem with facts published by the NRA. Would it hurt (or take too much time) to link the source data?

I guess so.

Well, many of the source files are copyright, not internet-accessable, limited access, or have changing links. The file is also intended to be printed out, and addition accentation to the footnotes would likely detract from overall presentation quality.

First off, kudos to folks trying to put out something to help counteract myths about firearms based in ignorance.

Secondly, and sadly, this text is often misleading, and on occasion, flat out wrong, at least as pertains to the chapter on'Ballistic Fingerprinting'.

I've worked for the last two years in a law enforcement firearms laboratory, as an IBIS Technician, and am familiar with the work, the myths, and the facts regarding the science and tehcnology used in what's more properly termed, Firearms Identification. A large number of the references, if you'll notice, are from opinion slanted mass media publications of both the printed and video variety. Stories written with a purpose, not an unbiased report.

Also, what information that was included in the chapter that was both factual, and accurate, was presented out of context. Thus skewing the perception of what the study meant, or how things are being used.

With all of the innacurracies I saw in that single chapter, I would not be inclined to accept anything else in the publication as factual or accurate....
