The Freakonomics Economists Call Out the Gun Control Debate (AUDIO)

03/1/13 2:16 PM | by

The widely heralded economists Stephen Dubner and Steve Levitt of Freakonomics fame took a look at some facts and figures surrounding the gun debate in their most recent podcast How to Think About Guns.  Freakonomics tag line is “The Hidden Side of Everything” and in this podcast Dubner and Levitt give some hard facts and truths on guns in America.  Facts and figures no one seems to be talking about in Washington or in the media.  Essentially they highlight the ridiculous perspective and solutions of those leading the gun control conversation.  Levitt states, “I would just say that anyone with any sense looks at the current political climate, thinks about the kinds of proposals that are being made and accepts the fact that none of these proposals are going to have any real impact at all.”  The podcast is 30 mintunes long and is a good listen.
