Gun Myths Endlessly Adopted, Abandoned by Left

Perpetual effort to ban guns goes from crazy to crazier

The effort to come up with sane gun policy is hindered by a flow of myths that arise and are abandoned, a function of left-wing fear and ignorance, which needs to stop. Media eagerly backs each myth as if it's real, then abandons it quickly when it's exposed as absurd, and dutifully moves on to the next one. Remember "waiting periods," the ultimate gun solution (for "crimes of passion")? One-gun-a-month? BITS -- "Blood In The Streets" if we allow CCW permits nationwide? It's a long list, here's Part I.
