This principle is imperative because every person, family and intermediate group has something original to offer to the community.

One work that Dolins and Christoffel cite does reject Kleck's views, but it makes no mention of the Wright and Rossi data set. [80] The work that Dolins and Christoffel cite reviews Kleck respectfully and without any demurral. [81] In reviewing Wright and Rossi's data, this other work seeks to put them in perspective, but does not reject them as "unconvincing." [82] In contrast, it gives a far more negative appraisal of a study on which Dolins and Christoffel rely to assert the foolishness of defensive gun ownership.
