Here's some data that refutes that limp dick claim.
None of the studies show any appreciable effect but there are still over 800,000 licensed gun owners and between 3.5 to 5.5 million registered guns in a population of 23 million
Ironic, since Sweden recently opened a rape counseling center for men IIRC.
Don't want Bambi hearing you shooting at her!
Oh, how I do love your pseudo-intelligence, Piobaire. Ever wonder that perhaps Sweden's culture makes women feel more empowered to report rapes (seeing as it's one of the most underreported crimes)? Just a theory mind--I'm sure you can pseudo-explain your way out of it, though, so I'm not too worried about you.
'Among the 27 developed countries, there was a significant positive correlation between guns per capita per country and the rate of firearm-related deaths (r = 0.80; P <.0001).'
'Regardless of exact cause and effect, however, the current study debunks the widely quoted hypothesis that guns make a nation safer.'
Gun ownership to gun-related deaths is what we're talking about, isn't it? Like I said, avoiding the science is a dumb thing to do.
