Are police concerned that greater gun control means we will then go after their guns? What can enhance police safety, given the events in Dallas? Reducing civilian firepower is an obvious measure to enhance police safety, as is banning armor-piercing bullets, although both of these measures are strongly resisted by the NRA [National Rifle Association].

One important study that merits further investigation found that states with high rates of civilian gun ownership are more dangerous for the police. The study examined data on the number of homicidal deaths of police in two groups of states with roughly equal number of police officers—the eight states with the lowest levels of gun ownership and the 23 states with the highest rate of gun ownership.
The study found that, over the period from tothe rate of police homicide in the high-gun prevalence states was three times as high as the rate of police homicide in the low-gun prevalence states.This raises a curious observation: it should really only be kosher to round off >1 digit at a time.
If you only know something to the accuracy of , you can’t round to 45, only to 40, because the is already “rounded” within your understanding of its accuracy — it could be a , and therefore the rounding to 45 isn’t appropriate.

The conflicted, dangerous, and empowering truth of American women's beliefs, opinions, and experiences of gun ownership and gun control -the results of which are published here for the first time.
Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years. We have now placed Twitpic in an archived state. Another study found that U.S. states with lenient gun control laws had more gun-related child injury hospital admissions than did states with stricter gun control laws.
