You know that's not what I'm arguing, I've stated that plainly several times already, nice lying though. So now you're linking to material with sources at the bottom even though you told me that's not good enough, lying, and pretending Wikipedia doesn't have sources. These are your debate tactics.
We were discussing the number of people murdered by guns in the US versus the number of lives saved in defensive gun uses in the US. Eye on the ball, son.

How is that speaking historically?
When one can identify a tourist as a potential "non gun owner" that becomes a preferred target.
Do you not understand that the law denoting license plates for rental vehicles to start with "R" made them a preferable target?

It's not my opinion...go look it up. You probably aren't old enough to remember it...it happened in Florida in the late 80's or early 90's. Wow, you're so fired up that you're swinging even at someone that was on the same side of the debate...
Yes it is a "factual" thing. You're assuming that criminals are stupid, that they cannot tell the difference between a rental license plate (which denoted a high probability of an unarmed tourist ) with a normal license plate (which denoted a high probability of a local who could be armed.)

Before everybody blames the left for this, keep in mind this was a Republican who wrote the bill.

Republican Democrat, there's little to nothing separating the two anymore. Save the spelling.
Nor, truth to tell is there much separating the fringes of the two parties...both are all for totalitarian nonsense, so long as it's them doin' the totalitarian nonsense.
