Pat Yourselves On The Back!

(But don’t print or reveal anything untoward whilst so doing…)

(from Brock Townsend)

I think that we’ve got to reign in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime. And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people. . . . carrying guns in public places. . . .” — Hillary Clinton, May 6, 2016 at the National Council for Behavioral Health

Surprise! A new report that was recently unveiled proves that the liberal fear of gun owners is completely and utterly unfounded.

The report, which was titled, “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States 2016,” covered a number of gun issues including the rise in gun ownership and the connection between gun owners and crime. While the entire report is well worth reading, there was one section in particular that is catching the attention of many 2nd Amendment advocates. The study examined data from Texas and Florida, two states that most accurately reflect the nation at large, and found that concealed carry holders are not just less likely to commit a crime than their fellow citizens, but they’re even less like to commit crime than police officers!

Concealed handgun permit holders are extremely law-abiding. In Florida and Texas, permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at one-sixth of the rate at which police officers are convicted.

The study also found other important correlations between American gun ownership and crime.

Yeah, the very ill candidate is wrong again.  Who knew?

  1. Actually, I’d hazard a guess that many of us knew that. Precisely because we’re among that number of folks so unlikely to commit a crime. Only liberals are so mentally off-balance that they don’t trust themselves with weapons, and then project that fear onto everyone else. They can’t conceive that they wouldn’t use a firearm in an illegal fashion, and apparently can’t conceive that anyone would behave more civilly than they.

  2. Yep, but that goes against the ‘agenda’, so figure the odds on how well THAT will play with the left… sigh
