Sean over at An NC Gun Blog has been doing some great work lately picking up stories of criminals. Unlike the Brady Bunch, he doesn’t seem to cherry pick them either, but the overall trend definitely seems that those who commit violent acts (with guns or without) tend to have extensive criminal histories. Not always, but it is generally the case.
It’s a great illustration of the mindset of “It’s not the tool, it’s the wielder” that I preach here constantly. If Sean’s not in your reader, you might want to change that!
