NRA News has added Billy Johnson, the man behind the viral gun statistics video TheBlaze wrote about here in January, as a new contributor.
Johnson will use his platform at NRA News to discuss statistics involving guns, gun ownership, and violent crime in the United States.
In short, he will continue to discuss the subjects mentioned in his now-viral “Choose Your Own Statistics” video.
In his latest offering, Johnson argues that U.S. lawmakers tend to focus on the tools of violence rather than the logic of violence. This, he explains, inevitably leads to bad policy.
But what does he mean by the “logic of violence”? Basically, violence rarely – if ever – comes form nothing. It’s usually a reaction to one’s own perception of their standing in society or a perceived threat.
You can watch Johnson discussion violence, the reasons for violence, and lawmakers’ often misguided to reaction violence involving firearms here:
