    Gun shows do not increase homicides or suicides

    A new study finds no evidence that gun shows lead to substantial increases in either gun-related homicides or suicides.
    The University of Michigan and University of Maryland study also shows that tighter regulation of gun shows does not appear to reduce the number of firearms-related deaths.

    now that we know this the government can take the people who work the gunshows and send them into the high crime areas of the major cities. i think cops and feds should work the high crime areas. or is this profiling?

    I wonder how much tax payer money went into that study?

    But what sticks out to me is one word - SUBSTANTIAL. This is giving the antis what they want, because it does not say

    Or something of that nature. But hey, that's just me reading between the lines

    Commonsense hasn't been around in years, it left about the same time all of the "zero tolerance" BS came about.

    Actually might even predate zero tolerance by a bit. IIRC, PC came before zero tol. I'd say common sense left around then. (YMMV)
