96. egg face foot mouth syndrome

In journalistic style, items are generally presented in order of diminishing importance. In the absence of modifiers such as "most importantly," the assumption is that the most important and reliable information comes first

Bulloffal in this case. Pathetic rebuttal, as if it proves anything except you try to protect your own gigantic ego. You blow smoke & tapdance. And not necessarily, as in this case, when it's prefaced as being a 'mix' of reasons. Alphabetic order sometimes takes preference, sometimes randomly. There are so many exceptions to that rule you should be thoroughly ashamed of trying to pass it off as a serious rebuttal.

Furthermore, how dare you assign priority when your own LA Times article had this to say about it, acknowledging they do not know which reason the more influential:

Researchers say uncertainty over what is driving the decline also stems from a lack of federal funding to study the issue.
In 1996, the Republican-controlled Congress passed the so-called Dickey Amendment, which stipulated that money appropriated to the CDC could not “be used to advocate or promote gun control.” The provision remains in place.


Doesn't really matter, though, twas expected of you. I'm well familiar with your specious style of malarky, tap dancing the night away when you're faced with your faulty reasoning, or trapped by your own devices.
You have been shown to be ignorant of the true reasons for the decline in firearm deaths & accidents since the 1980's & more dramatically since the early 90's, and you simply tried to foist upon readers an alternate reality that it was due to increased gun owner's safety training measures alone, discounting gun control & declining gun ownership rates
Go get a napkin wipe the egg off your face.
