ALPHECCA writes that a recent study linking gun ownership with increased risk of death is bogus.
In particular, he notes the lumping-together of homicides and suicides. This is often done as a way of inflating the numbers (because most "gun deaths" are actually suicides). Whenever I find that, I tend to assume that the study is intended to be alarmist, not informative.
