Klepper is good until he hits a subject he clearly knows nothing about
20 October 2017 | by VoyagerMN1986See all my reviews

I enjoy Klepper but this has to be his worst work by far.

Firstly he spends an entire hour on gun control and does no mention once, not once, the central and core trend, which is that US gun homicide rate has been declining for a decade and fallen by 62% since the early 1990's? or that accidental gun death rate has also fallen by about that much? Secondly he repeatedly claims only a tiny fraction of gun control advocates want to ban guns, when in fact every single gun control lobby group, all of Bloomberg's various groups (Everytown, etc), as well as Brady Campaign, and Violence Policy Center, all -- every one -- supported DC in DC v heller, which was about jurisdiction being able to completely ban them? Thirdly not one mention of the fact that the US rate of murder of non criminals is lower than the EU average, Canada and Australia? The entire elevation of US homicide rates is criminals killing criminals, over 92% of US homicide. if you are not a criminal you are safer in the US than virtually any developed democracy Fourthly he paints the NRA as somehow unpopular and not representative? NRA is not only by far the largest paid membership civil rights/liberties group in the US, it is running a 58% approval rating among all Americans in the latest gallup (google NRA gallup approvals).

Fifthly he uses a number for "fatal gun violence" that is a combination of suicide (2/3 of his number) and homicide by gun. Yet does not look at US overall suicide plus homicide compared to other countries' overall suicide plus homicide rates. Dozens of developed democracies have higher suicide plus homicide rates, S. Korea is nearly double that of the US, Japan about 50% higher.

Lastly he says the majority of Americans just want "universal background checks" for people who want to keep and bear arms. Yet in fact he himself then supports a test of a "good reason' to do so, meaning he is sneaking in a condition that ends up disqualifying 90% of people who do pass background checks.
