I had this thing

About the latest FBI/DOJ crime numbers.  I usually comment here about that.  But my inspiration monkey hasn't hit me in the head with his New Idea pipe wrench in a while.  My mood has been a bit sour lately.  You know why.

21,500 murders in 2020.  5,000 more than in 2019.

From NPR.  They haven't said it yet, but the idea can't be far behind. This is somehow going to be the gun's fault.  And not the 'demoralize and defund the police' fault.  

Of course!  Record amount of gun purchases, expecially by women and minorities, then record amounts of violence on women and minorities.  Like A follows B.  Right?  Connected!  Right?

Sounds like something the other side will say.

We must immediately ban all dairy products, because 100% of all people that have consumed dairy have and will DIE!

See how stupid just correlating facts can be without doing in depth data analysis?

How many of those legally purchased firearms have been used in a crime? I contend NONE unless they have stolen.
