To wit: 5 Mind-Blowing Facts Nobody Told You About Guns. It… doesn’t suck. It is, in fact, a reasonably fair look at the situation that readily admits – in fact, highlights – that gun crime is down and has been down for some time.

And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Anyway, some useful stuff in there. I should also note, more seriously, that one thing that should be addressed far more often in the gun control debate is the problem of handgun suicide. It often gets ignored, largely because one side can’t use it as a scourge with which to flog the other one and the other side doesn’t want to give the one side free ammo. But we really should do something about that… and as soon as I figure out something, I’ll let you know.
