Gun Control Ammo

Here's a little sanity in the midst of massive media idiocy regarding newly proposed gun control legislation.
David Mamet – Gun Laws and the Fools of Chelm (Daily Beast).  This is must reading. 
Gun Rhetoric vs. Gun Facts – (Factcheck.org) 
John Fund – Facts about Mass Shootings (National Review) 
John Lott – The Facts about Assault Weapons and Crime (WSJ) 
Thomas Sowell – Invincible Ignorance 
Peter Ferarra – "Assault Weapon" Is Just A PR Stunt Meant To Fool The Gullible (Forbes) 
Ben Stein – God Help us (The American Spectator) 
David Kopel – Guns, Mental Illness and Newtown (Wall Street Journal) 
Gun Owners of America – Just for Skeptics 
James Slack – The Most Violent Country in Europe: England
James Taranto – The Medium is the Motive (Wall Street Journal)
Aaron Goldstein – Liberals Who Cling to their Guns 
Thomas Sowell – Replacing What Works with What Sounds Good (my title, not his)
Sen. Feinstein wants to confiscate them all  
Jeffrey Goldberg – The Case for More Guns (and More Gun Control) 
Joyce Lee Malcom – Two Cautionary Tales of Gun Control.  "Strict gun laws in Great Britain and Australia haven't made their people noticeably safer, nor have they prevented massacres. The two major countries held up as models for the U.S. don't provide much evidence that strict gun laws will solve our problems." 
Frank Miniter – Why Obama's Gun Control Proposals Already Seem Poised To Fail.  "Instead of treating gun owners as the opposition, President Obama should acknowledge that gun owners are also parents and grandparents who want schools and streets to be safe." (1/10/2013) 
Andrew Napolitano - Guns and Freedom
Who Needs More Than 10 Rounds?  This is a great little essay.
Bill Flax - The Second Amendment is What Makes the Other Nine Possible (Forbes)
David Sherfinski – States' Crime Rates Show Scant Linkage to Gun Laws (Washington Times) 
Gun crime has plunged, but Americans think it's up (LA Times) 
This pretty much sums it all up
 I plan to keep this post updated with the best articles available.
