Would you blame the car dealership …

… that sold a car to a drunk driver that killed a loved one in an alcohol related fatality?  I wouldn’t.  I don’t see why Eric Thompson doesn’t deserve the same consideration.

UPDATE: Also note that the VPC study Bryan links to reports gun deaths, not gun homicides as Bryan claims.  There’s a difference between the two.  Gun deaths include suicides.  I do believe that lower levels of gun ownership tends to reduce the incidents of gun homicides, much like I believe that the lack of tall buildings in Boise probably translates into it having a lower per-capita suicide rate by jumping than, say, New York City or San Francisco.
