Fallacies and Poster

Part 1

1. Hasty Generalization; “Governments commonly dislike the idea of firearms in the hands of their citizenry.” While this might be true, I need some supporting evidence.

2. Circular reasoning. “An armed citizen can deal with a criminal from an equal or better position. It’s difficult to kill . . . an armed person.” This doesn’t actually make an argument, it just makes the same claim twice.

Part 2
In the left panel, I’ll put basic gun crime information, blown up so it can be seen easily, and photographs of some of the important people involved in the push for handgun bans.

The right panel will contain the information about my case studies (Chicago and DC)

The center panel will contain data from the Lott & Mustard study, contrasted with the Sloan study.
