The Definitive Counter Argument - Pro Gun

Bill Whittle of course, who can flatten anyone with a one-liner or crush an onrushing hoarde with a three-minute oration:

Another aspect of what fun statistics can be. Some of the information seems to have come from Page Nine which in turn seems to have gotten some data from an older source which I seem to have misplaced. I took the older data and compared it to newer stuff and discovered that while gun ownership seems to be going up world wide, national murder rates seem to be creeping downward.

Note the cluster of ownership dots creeping upward and the murder rates creeping leftward. The extreme right dot in both cases is Russia which shows a commendable drop in homicide for a modest increase in ownership rates.
