90. card stacking and ad hoc fallacies

If you banned guns, the suicide rate would be the same, just more rope deaths. Also, most of the murders are criminals killing each other.
BTW, for each self-defense shooting, there are ten woundings and 10-100 "threat neutralized" with no shots fired.

Why is it limited? Because the NRA and gun manufacturers have lobbied Congress to restrict data. Because they are afraid of data.
That is actually a lie put out by the prohibition lobby and parroted by the lazy corporate media. The ban is on the CDC ADVOCATING, any paying nonscientists to do shill studies that fail peer review. Now those studies are funded out of Bloomberg's pocket. Research by honest researchers following the scientific method continues funded by the DoJ's NIJ, and are published in peer-reviewed criminology journals. The problem is that the Bradys of the world don't like the results.

Please explain how my logic is flawed? Specify the logical fallacy. The WaPo article took a press release from Bloomberg and did not do any research from the other side. IOW, he violated the journalist code of ethics (which is not uncommon)
