Comment: Bogus comparison.

(See in situ)


Bogus comparison.

The comparison used by Hudak is bogus.

The correct comparison is against attacks stopped, not against attackers killed. Almost NONE of the attackers are killed in a defensive use, even in the small fraction where the use includes firing. (Usually they stop attacking and try to get away as soon as the defensive gun shows up.)

(I haven't checked where the "Colorado Coalition Against Gun Violence" is getting the 83 number for the bogus comparison, but I've heard it's bogus as well. If anyone has any references on that either where they're getting it or what the real number is, please respond with a pointer. Thanks.)

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.
