Well, well, well. With the NRA planning to blame violent video games and movies, and eager grandstanding politicians, pundits and some members of an angry public ready to do the same, it seems like it might be useful to look at some actual data.

The speed with which this was introduced suggests that it was already sitting in a desk drawer, just waiting for a tragedy to exploit.
