The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence just sent me a summary of a study done by Dr. Garen J. Wintermute, who is Director of the University of California (Davis campus) Violence Prevention Research Program. Dr. Wintermute has visited 28 gun shows in California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and Florida.
The report is lengthy, highly detailed, and written in the brain-coagulating academic prose that nearly got me flunked out of college. I don’t have the space to discuss it in detail, so I’ll have to limit myself to comments on just a few of his points.
