Re: CULTURE: Interesting Chicago Statistics

Unfortunately, this is bad statistics, false logic and a non
sequitur. Even if the facts are true and the conclusion are true,
this sequence of logic is unsupportable.

        1. Chicago has more murders than Dupage County
        2. Chicago has more restrictive gun laws than Dupage County
        3. Therefore restrictive gun laws cause murders.

I support gun rights, but do not want to see false arguments used to
promote freedom. Truth supports freedom.
