That's a well researched and written article. Occasionally Lewis does write one.....(only minor trolling)
I was having a discussion about this on line the other day. As I used to be a member of a gun club before all guns were deemed too evil. There standpoint was that bullets ripping through flesh must be terrible, and perhaps shooting the crap out of people was bad. And I agreed, my friend indeed had a point, in fact he had a quiver of them. Archery is much more fun, it doesn't make a loud bang and the poundage on his bow would cause some serious damage as it fired a pointy stick at you (through you)
The actual proportion of people with guns that shoot people is relatively small, unless you watch the news or read the papers.
