Thread: CCL equals Safer Cities!

  1. CCL equals Safer Cities!

    To the best of my knowledge, every state with legal carry has lowered violent crime rates. Those cities that most stringently limit their citizens' rights to carry and defend themselves have the highest murder rates.

    More of a statement than a question, but you are correct.

    A fact that needs more Media Coverage, the general public are misinformed about CCL holders and that is a cause for fear among them. I would like to see more information being publicized about the crimes that CCL holders have stopped or prevented.

    gun control is being able to hit your target

    If more people carried and more perps were shot the bad guys might be less likely to rob and kill. I realize some desperate ones still would but not as many.

    Remember, no bad guy wants to get shot, so knowing more people had guns would have to scare them. Especially knowing those people had training with firearms and practice a lot.

    Dr. John R. Lott, jr. put out a great book called "More Guns Less Crime" it really looks really deep at that fact, also check out Florida's crime stats showing before and after they allowed CCW and what all of the pundents said that there would be blood in the streets if Florida allowed the CCW law.

    Technically 49 out of 50 states have some method of "legal carry". The only one that doesnt is Illinois. So is your point that all of those 49 states have lower violent crime rates than Illinois' violent crime rate? Maybe throw in some numbers and sources to prove it

    I do know one thing. The bad guys HATE CCW states.
    Samuel Colt did more for equality in America than any civil rights activist.

    California is a perfect example. Disarm law abiding citizens and criminals will take full advantage of it.

    5 years since the move from California... never going back!
