C.W. Griffin is such a hoot ... clueless about what PERCENT means (“Right equates gun-control efforts with demands for universal gun confiscation,” AFN, Feb. 3).

But what I’m really curious about is what the other folks living here in Ahwatukee think, by conducting a survey.

Griffin purports that if a 1 percent increase in gun ownership results in a 3 percent decrease in crime rate, that represents a LINEAR relationship. In other words a 100 percent increase in gun ownership would create a NEGATIVE crime rate ... implying that John Lott’s premise was not correct.

So I’d like to know if AFN readers agree with C.W. E-mail your responses to math@analog-innovations.com. Please explain your reasoning. I’d also like to know your occupation. You can be otherwise anonymous.

For those of you with a mathematical curiosity, surf on “Difference Equations.” A particularly appropriate link is http://tinyurl.com/bao5ryt.

Thanks.
