The thing is, you’re completely right that the VPC is an untrustable source that fucks with statistics in order to make its point. I criticized it in pretty absolute terms.

The VPC looks like a shitty advocacy group intentionally cherrypicking only research that agrees with them. Their argument is a weak one.

I’m completely willing to say that anti-gun places are bullshitting on statistics. I’d love it if you could reach a higher quality than they do. But by misusing statistics, you’re not aiming any higher than they are.
