I would but my major fun on the gun control issue is pointing out that
the statistics pointed to by both sides were done by people that had
conclusions drawn before they ever started their "research".  It's 
rather amazing,  rabid gun owners and equally rabid gun haters
cannot form a coherent arguement when you take their statistics away
from them.  I do wonder though if this isn't what has happened in
the US as a whole, and maybe even worldwide.  Logic isn't necessary,
just use a statistic that supports your arguement.
