Where is that CIA or FBI or whatever it was report that gun control laws had about no effect on crime rates?

google "more guns, less crime", Lott did some great work, even if his internet sockpuppeting was stupid as hell. Liberals have never debunked his analyses interrelating gun ownership regs and crime rates.
And he used the FBI's own crime stats as the basis for much of his analysis, correlating it with local and state regs.
