If there's an award for fisking the work of clueless journalists, then I reckon Kevin over at Smallest Minoroty should win it. His latest dissection "Apparently Along with the Chocolate Rivers come Rainbow Skies and Gumdrop Smiles, too!" is a must read:
So, would you please explain how, if "the availability of handguns is murderous," the addition of at least sixteen million handguns - an increase of about twenty-five percent - resulted in a reduction in homicides nationally - of over 42%?
Unless, of course, your premise is entirely in error.
Nah, couldn't be. You're a journalist.
