The tally by the Violence Policy Center, a gun safety group, is necessarily incomplete because the gun lobby has been so successful in persuading gullible state and national legislators that concealed carry is essential to public safety, thus blocking the extensive data collection that should be mandatory for an obvious and severe public health problem. For that reason, the center has been forced to rely largely on news accounts and limited data in 38 states and the District of Columbia.

So a biased sourced is reporting that their findings are factually incomplete and their tally is of murders vs. self defense comes from television stations.

Excellent reporting. Click bait bullshit at it's finest.

The Violence Policy Center is just another Soros-funded propaganda mill.

The statistics were incomplete due to gun industry lobbying was the point... At least they don't plain misinterpret exiting data like the NRA does, and instead they admit that the data is incomplete and rely on what they have (what everyone has) to go on.

You're more likely to be shot by a cop than any other gun owner including yourself.

I carry concealed and if i walk into a 7-11 and see a guy holding a gun on a hapless store clerk, I'll shoot the perp dead. No warning, just bang.

What percentage of mass shootings have been stopped by a concealed carrier?
