The deterrence statistics is not from Ayoob and it is well documented in the criminological literature. Look at the writings of Dr. Gary Kleck for instance.

There is actually scholarly work on this. Much of it is presented at the American Society for Criminology and presented in various referred journals.

Ayoob is a secondary source. It's funny that many of the things he says have a basis in the academic literature but folks just read gun rags and think he is making stuff up.
