Accurate statistics

There is seemingly no end to the extent to which anti-gun people and groups will lie about guns and gun owners. Post links to articles by these masters of prevarication here.

I just found an interesting news report that gives supports most of what we have been saying and a lib would hate to see.
http://abc13.com/news/answers-from-insi ... s/1575958/
The reporter did a survey of killers in Texas, convicted over the last three years. Only one bought a gun from a dealer!

Most things I read in the popular press are, often incorrectly, interpreting statistics published by either FBI ( https://ucr.fbi.gov/ ) or CDC ( https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm ).

This one cites neither. It was an independent survey of killers in Harris county. Supports our side...
