Introduction Predictably, gun violence, particularly homicide, is a major study topic for social scientists, particularly criminologists. Our focus is the remarkable difference between the way medical and public health writers treat firearms issues and the way social scientists treat those issues.
Examination of the literature produced by medical and health writers reveals why their conclusions on firearms diverge so radically from those of criminological scholarship. We focus on that literature's anomalies both for their own sake and because that focus allows us to explore some of the more important policy and legal issues of gun control.
This is the case in many European countries. That term could mean no more than noncontroversial measures to prohibit gun misuse or gun possession by high risk groups.

After all, guns are hateful things for which no decent purpose is imaginable, certainly not self-defense.
Arrayed against the beneficent alliance of health advocates and anti-gun political advocates are only sinister "powerful lobbies that impede constructive exploration of the full range of social options"  by nefarious p. This is a struggle between modern enlightenment and, at best, morally obtuse and intellectually benighted atavism.
There is no time for arid, academic discussion; the need for gun control is too urgent to require--or allow--equivocation, doubt, debate, or dissent. We reason that the time has come for government and citizens to begin a reasoned dialogue on the "why not" of gun ownership.
If the conduct of youth [sic] and the need for harmony of humans with Nature is valuable to health and civilization, the world's most powerful country may not find justification for an armed citizenry. Evidence or perspectives that p. This literature exists in a vacuum of lock-step orthodoxy almost hermetically sealed from the existence of contrary data or scholarship.
Such contrary data and scholarship routinely go unacknowledged; at best, they are evaded by misleading association with the sinister forces of the gun lobby.If your passion is for literary fiction, you’ll find guidelines for mastering plot, character, setting, dialogue and more right here.

In psychology and cognitive neuroscience, pattern recognition describes a cognitive process that matches information from a stimulus with information retrieved from memory..
Pattern recognition occurs when information from the environment is received and entered into short-term memory, causing automatic activation of a specific content of long-term memory.
Since the definition of nuance already connotes subtlety—we don't speak of blatant or obvious nuances—some might regard the use of subtle as a modifier here to be redundant. But the fact of its frequent use is an indication that the connotation of subtlety in nuance might itself be too subtle to be picked up by many English speakers.
