ALERT: Inaccurate Claim on Police Deaths in States With More Guns
Fraudulent study in the American Journal of Public Health inaccurately claims that states with more guns have more police deaths…

The end of last week a study in the The American Journal of Public Health claimed that there were more police feloniously killed in states that had more guns. The study got extensive news coverage at the TV networks such as NBC News, newspapers such as the Chicago Sun-Times, and international coverage such the UK Guardian.

This method is called “fixed effects.” Strangely the authors, David Swedler, Molly M. Simmons, Francesca Dominici, and David Hemenway, only control for the differences across states and not over time. A couple of simple examples show why other studies on crime take into account these factors…….CLICK HERE TO READ THE REST!
