After you read this, ask yourself why the Left is so adamant about attacking gun rights. I think you know the answer already
Concealed-carry permit holders are nearly the most law-abiding demographic of Americans, a new report by the Crime Prevention Research Center says—comparing the permit holders foremost with police.
“Indeed, it is impossible to think of any other group in the U.S. that is anywhere near as law-abiding,” says the report, titled “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States 2016.”
“We find that permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth the rate for police officers,” the report says. “Among police, firearms violations occur at a rate of 16.5 per 100,000 officers. Among permit holders in Florida and Texas, the rate is only 2.4 per 100,000.10. That is just one-seventh of the rate for police officers.”
Further damning is this stat, from states that do not require a permit to carry
“In 2014, the seven states that allowed concealed carry without a permit had much lower rates of murder and violent crime than did the seven jurisdictions with the lowest percentage of permit holders,” the Crime Prevention Research Center report reads. “Indeed, the murder rate was 31 percent lower in the states not requiring permits. The violent crime rate was 28 percent lower. Compared to the rest of the country, the 25 states with the highest rates of permit-holding experienced markedly lower rates of murder and violent crime.”
The Cult of Gun Control, of course, continues to lie. Consider Dan Gross of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence
“The fact is, despite the repugnant lies and wild west fantasies peddled by the corporate gun lobby, communities with a greater number of loaded, concealed guns are markedly more dangerous, and their citizens’ lives are at greater risk.
Well Dan, obviously you are ignorant or lying, and I would guess lying, deliberately, because the right of self-defense offends your collectivist mindset. The fact is as more and more guns are bought by law-abiding Americans violent crime rates, homicide rates, and accidental deaths by guns have all decreased, as has the rate of homicide by firearm. Numbers do not lie Dan, you do.
Unless Dan is talking about cities like Chicago, Baltimore, and DC, which have very strict gun laws, which disarm good people while doing nothing to stop gang bangers, and thugs from carrying concealed, loaded, and illegal guns, and committing crimes, then Dan is most definitely lying. Dan knows the truth, yet he lies anyway, again, ask yourself why.
