BradyWatch: someone’s in a fantasy world

The Brady Campaign’s Dennis Henigan says that the idea of “More Guns = Less Crime” is a fantasy world delusion. O rly? I have a graph he might find interesting:

Violent crime rate and private firearm ownership, 1981-2007

Hmm. Maybe he means “more guns = more gun homicide” instead?

No, that’s no better. Hmm. Who’s living in the fantasy world, again, Dennis?
