Bloomberg how to get rid of little ants in house Funded Ant-Gun Brain Washing Course Now Online, Learn to Hate Freedom – Patriot Gun News

The bloomberg professor of american health at the bloomberg school how to get rid of little ants in house of public health at johns hopkins university, daniel webster, and his colleagues at the hopkins center for gun policy how to get rid of little ants in house and research launched their much anticipated massive, open online course “ reducing gun violence in america: evidence for change” this week. The course is available on coursera, an online learning platform.

The course reference list is 16 pages long. Sixteen pages of studies and related articles all focused on how to get rid of little ants in house the issue of “gun violence.” granted, a small number of references are used in more than how to get rid of little ants in house one week of the six-week program but we are still looking at sixteen pages how to get rid of little ants in house of references. The course is geared to high school and college-aged people but is open to everyone, and “the hope is to get participants up to speed on how to get rid of little ants in house ‘relevant legal issues and effectively use data’ central to the nation’s policy debate on guns.” the organizers deliberately did not invite anyone from the NRA how to get rid of little ants in house and the gun rights movement to participate in the course, and the results are what one would expect when such how to get rid of little ants in house a conscious decision is made.

Rational arguments in support of gun rights are excluded or how to get rid of little ants in house denigrated while other research, facing the same alleged shortcomings, is held up as fact. Inane and widely rejected research is presented as incontrovertible evidence. Data proven unreliable by another bloomberg outfit is presented without how to get rid of little ants in house comment, though it was only used to make a simple comparison. And, this is just week one.

Buckle up; the next few weeks are going to be…well, something. We’ve seen what’s coming in future weeks and it’s only going to get worse. Or better, if you’re the sort of person who enjoys arguing on the how to get rid of little ants in house internet or seeing just how the other side will twist how to get rid of little ants in house and misrepresent data and – spoiler alert – supreme court decisions – to demonize firearms and law-abiding gun owners. We’ll focus exclusively on week one in this article.

First, we like to give credit where credit is due. Webster acknowledges and then further emphasizes “ a very important principle here is that gun owners who how to get rid of little ants in house purchase a firearm legally, generally are even more law-abiding than your average person.” webster’s course does not cover policy interventions in week one, but we did notice something missing from the reference list: webster’s own work on comprehensive background checks and misdemeanor violence how to get rid of little ants in house prohibitions in california, which found no effect of these laws on firearm homicides how to get rid of little ants in house in california. We appreciated the effort of dr. Webster, dr. Garen wintemute, and their teams to show that comprehensive background checks are how to get rid of little ants in house ineffective and wonder why that work was not included in how to get rid of little ants in house the hopkins-coursera course “reducing gun violence in america: evidence for change.” we would have suggested it be included, had we been invited to participate.

Let’s look at some of the specific issues with week how to get rid of little ants in house one. Webster criticizes a gary kleck study that estimated about 2.5 million defensive gun uses per year for having a how to get rid of little ants in house small sample size and the allegation that the findings indicate how to get rid of little ants in house there an exaggerated number of people shot during the study how to get rid of little ants in house period. No such criticism is offered of the anti-gun studies on the same topic webster presents, and the number of defensive gun uses found in these how to get rid of little ants in house other studies is not mentioned. For the record, the estimate of the number of defensive gun uses from how to get rid of little ants in house one of these surveys is around 116,000 per year. Webster says this is a “much, much smaller fraction of an estimated number of times in how to get rid of little ants in house which civilians are using guns in self-defense.” that may be “much, much smaller” than kleck’s estimate but 116,000 americans using a firearm to defend themselves is pretty how to get rid of little ants in house significant. Also missing from the bloomberg school online course: any mention of kleck’s work analyzing long-hidden CDC data on defensive gun use. Kleck’s analysis found that the number of defensive gun uses how to get rid of little ants in house per year ranged from 620,648 to 1.9 million over the years the CDC collected data in how to get rid of little ants in house some states. Notably, none of kleck’s work is included in the reference list.

The other major issue we found in week one is how to get rid of little ants in house the use of arthur kellerman’s study from 1993. We’ve covered the problems with the kellerman study in the how to get rid of little ants in house past, notably here and here. In short, kellerman’s very limited study supposedly determined that having a gun how to get rid of little ants in house in the home increases the risk of homicide. Webster does bring up one point of criticism of the how to get rid of little ants in house study, but does not offer the most obvious criticism: that the study was focused on homicide victims and made how to get rid of little ants in house absolutely no effort to include the millions of americans who how to get rid of little ants in house own a firearm and are not killed or do not how to get rid of little ants in house kill anyone else. Kellerman’s study also found that renting a home and living how to get rid of little ants in house alone both had higher adjusted odds ratios of being killed. We eagerly await an online course advocating for group home how to get rid of little ants in house ownership.
