Speaking of "research"

David Codrea asks why "researchers" are citing a quote by degenerate has-been rocker, Ozzy Osborne in an effort to promote their gun control agenda.
Anti-gun researchers (and frequent Joyce Foundation beneficiaries) Philip J. Cook and Jens Ludwig presume to challenge everything we think we know in their WaPo hit piece, "Five myths about gun control."

Shall we examine the very first contention they would have us accept as a non-mythical and reality-based view?

Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

We're apparently supposed to reject this. Their persuasive argument?

As Ozzy Osbourne once said in an interview with the New York Times: "I keep hearing this [expletive] thing that guns don't kill people, but people kill people. If that's the case, why do we give people guns when they go to war? Why not just send the people?"

Why are 'researchers' using Ozzy Osbourne's ramblings to push for more 'gun control'?
I'll use a quote here: "Good grief" - Charlie Brown.

How can you argue with Ozzy? I mean it. Really. The guy's brain has been fried for decades and he's completely incomprehensible.

I say we lock Ozzy and Ted Nugent in for a rasslin' cage match and see who comes out standing. My money's on Uncle Ted.

Ozzy is just as valid as any other has-been washed up rocker. Even Bono met with Obama and traveled around with the former treasury secretary for Bush.

You're right, Bawb. And how come no one asks for Ted's advice on guns? He absolutely has more knowledge than Ozzy (even on guns).
