Fox News headline: Data shows gun ban ineffective
#1
As of right now, this news story is the top headline on Fox News.com:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/12/...apons-ban/

Interesting.

Quote:Congress is poised to launch into a contentious debate next year over reinstating the assault-weapons ban.
In the wake of the Connecticut elementary school massacre, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., already has vowed to introduce such a bill at the start of the session. President Obama is voicing support.
But crime trends over the past few decades offer a mixed verdict on whether renewing the ban would reduce the kinds of mass shootings that have spurred calls for its re-enactment in the first place.
Data published earlier this year showed that while the ban was in place, from 1994 to 2004, the number of mass shootings actually rose slightly during that period.
Add to that the fact that most gun crimes in America are committed with handguns, and the gun lobby enters this debate with some potent statistics.

Yeah, but the MSM (obviously not including Fox, but CNN, MSNBC, etc.) and celebrity culture force people to think Fox News is evil and nothing but propaganda! Tongue

Beat me to it. I was going to say, unless you see it on Daily Kos, HuffPo, and Democratic Underground, it doesn't mean shit to the antis.

Fox is never anything more than fuel for their rage.

Fox doesn't have to say it. This has been known before Fox said it. When I say that the anti's don't have facts on their side, this is what I mean. The 1994 AWB was an abject failure. Even the CDC said that gun control neither helps nor hinders violent crime. These are simple facts one can find on their own.
