The Stupid, It Burns Once Again

Richard Bartholomew, 12/17/12:
Gun violence has nothing to do with national culture -- Canada, with a similar number of guns per capita to the US, has much fewer spree killers -- or with mental-health issues, or size of magazines, or with phases of the moon, or any other superficially plausible explanation.

No, gun violence rises and falls in a pure link with unemployement, which is why there have been so many since 2008 and none before that -- as, for example, 1999, the lowest in 30 years.

Once again, cartoonists -- five minutes on Wikipedia. That's all we ask.
