NPR has released a report concerning the number of citizens who are licensed to carry concealed guns!
It asks a provocative question and has already received thousands of comments from it’s readers:
There is a pistol-packing revolution going on in America. Nearly 13 million Americans have permits to carry a concealed gun — triple the number just nine years ago — and that figure is low because not every state reports.
It’s puzzling that so many Americans are choosing to arm themselves at a time when the FBI tells us violent crime and property crime have been falling dramatically for two decades.
I am busting a gut! THEY ANSWERED THEIR OWN QUESTION!
“violent crime and property crime have been falling dramatically for two decades”
“Nearly 13 million Americans have permits to carry a concealed gun — triple the number just nine years ago.”
They answer their own question and totally trounce on the liberal argument that more guns raises gun crime!!!!… With their own thought provoking question!
THAT NPR is what we call #Checkmate!
The stats have proven it for a long time!
It does not get any clearer than that! The more people that carry a gun, the less crime!
The state with the worst gun crime stats? California!
Guess what state has the most stringent Brady Gun Laws? CALIFORNIA!
The city with the worst gun crime stats? Chicago!
Guess what city has the most stringent Gun Laws? CHICAGO!!!
Two buildings. One says, “No Guns!” the other says, “We are Packin!”
Which building will a thug walk into?…Simple really!
“States with the largest increases in gun ownership also have the largest drops in violent crimes. Thirty-one states now have such laws—called “shall-issue” laws. These laws allow adults the right to carry concealed handguns if they do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness.” ~ John Lott
