On the blog: "Gun Ownership: A Right or Privilege?", I read about an interesting study today. More intiguing than what was actually being said, is the way the author of mentioned blog presents the information to his readers:

The study:
  • 1 percent of gun stores sell the weapons traced to 57 percent of gun crimes.
The blog:
  • 1% of gun dealers are responsible for about 57% of all gun crimes

Is this a matter of semantics, or is the blogger deceiving his readers? Does he hold the people who sell guns responsible for the actions of those who abuse them? Would he hold car manufacturers responsible for hit and run incidents?

I'm off to ask him, feel free to follow suit.
