: My computer won't open the zip file, nor does it ever intend upon doing so. Firstly, I see no reason to further bow to the Great Capitalist Gods of Technology-Huckstering to buy any upgrades that would give me the memory capacity to open zip files. Secondly, I read Floyd's link to one of your researchers, and that was enough. Y'all a bunch of gungoons. (Not a site I totally agree with, but quite funny nonetheless.)

Don: Floyd's link was a VPC page that is an attack on Lott, not his research. Lott and his family have recieved death threats from gun control advocates.

Don: Note that no one has been able to refute Lott's research, but you reject it on the basis of a persoanal attack . . .

: Frankly, the issue of guns isn't terribly important to me. Don't own one, don't want to. People who feel insecure without their guns have a psychological problem, and the solution to psychological problems isn't more guns, nor is it fewer guns, it's psychology. So you might ask yourself why it's such a big concern of yours.

Don: Now you make a personal attack on me. Typical.

Don: The right to keep and bear arms is the right to defend life and libery. Life and liberty are important, therefore the right to keep and bear arms is important.
