And the referenced study:

Thanks Bruce, I saw it on TUE but didn’t post.

That sure is the trend.  Every place that has CC and easy handgun aquisition has less crime.   Only places crime grows are those Commi-Lib Demoncrac controlled bastions of sorrow. 

Chicago would be a great place not to have to live in.  When up north in the US of A I live in ILLinois.  I think Washington DC would be real close in the running.  LA also sounds like a wonderful hive of criminal activity… Do all have Democrate mayors ?   Is there any large city been mayored by a non Democrat for lets say 4 years that the crime continues to rise ?  It sure is a sad commentary on a political party. 

Not that the Republicans are really less corrupt.. But at least in a general sence they still recognize the Constitution exists. 

Solution.. ???  Only one I can see involves alot of Constitutionists rising up and sticking our foot through the door.

I’ve heard the same news by various radio talk show personalities this week…yet I doubt any of the television watching sheeple will hear word one of any of it. We have many thousands more guns in circulation since 1979, with many thousands more people owning those guns and yet the overall gun crime is down. 

I doubt we will ever have a perfectly safe environment with zero gun related fatalities, no matter what sort of draconian laws they pass (look at Australia for example), but this study sure looks like a perfect example showing that an armed society works!




Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
