Michigan Newspapers on 10 Years of Shall Issue

Several different Michigan newspapers including the Flint Journal and The Grand Rapids Press are running articles covering the states 10 years of shall-issue permitting for concealed carry.  Most of the articles focus on how some counties do not file reports they are legally obligated to.

A few quotes:

“However, two prominent criminologists — who often disagree on the topic of guns — agree on this: The law has not had a significant impact on crime rates.”

“David McDowall, a professor at the University at Albany, State University of New York, has sparred with Kleck over various gun issues.

He agrees that allowing law-abiding people to carry firearms “hasn’t had much impact on crime or on public life in general.”

By the term ‘IMPACT’ are they referring to the effect on the Career Repeat Offenders as the recipients? If so the shooters that CHL/CCW may not be under threat as often, due to the increased risk involved, thereby holding the line at it’s previous level? I always question ‘Studies’ and their motive. Preconceived outcomes do affect the graphs in any study.

Regardless, studies and government and news organization supplied information continue to show that anywhere from 800,000 to over 2,000,000 times per year, a citizen has to use a gun to protect themselves or another, and being able to do so legally is always a good thing and the way it should be, anywhere in the US or its territories.
