’60 Minutes’: Data Showing More Guns, Less Crime an ‘Alternative Fact’

During the February 11 airing of 60 Minutes, host Steve Kroft suggested data showing more guns equal less crime is simply one of numerous “alternate facts.”

He was intimating that pro-Second Amendment facts exist, but those facts are often dispelled by anti-Second Amendment facts.

Of course, this is not how facts work. Instead, there is what is true and what is false, and facts distinguish the former from the latter.

For instance, Democrats rail against AR-15s and AK-47s as the weapon of choice for miscreants, but unvarnished FBI stats show over four times more people were stabbed to death in 2016 than were shot and killed with rifles of any kind.
