Gun Shows Are Okay

Using data from California and Texas Gun and Knife Show Calendar, a new NBER working paper finds no evidence that gun shows lead to substantial increases in gun homicides or suicides. The paper also finds no evidence to support the claim that tighter regulation of gun shows reduces the number of firearm-related deaths.

If you are like me and have never had the pleasure of attending a gun show, take the opportunity to do so here.
