More guns, less crime: Harper’s comments match hard evidence

Canada’s liberal elite are still losing their minds over Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s “vanilla” comments about gun ownership.

The Edmonton Journal in particular ran an over-the-top editorial denouncing Harper in particular and gun ownership in general that reads almost like a work of satire — but the editors were quite serious.

Brian Lilley explains what’s wrong with the “studies” that gun-hating liberals always cite, and explains what the statistics really reveal about gun ownership and crime.

For instance, some regions in Canada have higher murder rates than their American neighbours. How do anti-gun leftists explain that?
