“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


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


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.

During President Obama’s administration, the number of concealed handgun permits has soared to over 14.5 million – a 215% increase since 2007. Among the findings of our report: 

■ The increase in the number of concealed handgun permits last year set another record, increasing by 1.73 million. That is slightly greater than previous record of 1.69 million set the last year.

■ 6.06% of the total adult population has a permit.

Along with this extreme spike in gun ownership has come a correspondingly extreme collapse in violent crime and murder!

■ Between 2007 and 2015, murder rates fell from 5.6 to 4.7 (preliminary estimate) per 100,000. This represents a 16% drop. Overall violent crime fell by 18 percent. Meanwhile, the percentage of adults with permits has soared by 190%. 

■ Regression estimates show a significant association between increased permit ownership and a drop in murder and violent crime rates. Each one-percentage point increase in rates of permit holding is associated with a roughly 2.5 percent drop in the murder rate. This holds true even after accounting for the number of police per capita, demographics, and the percentage of the population that is incarcerated.

The simple fact of the matter is that both the scientific and anecdotal sets of evidence point to the 2nd Amendment being a boon for freedom and security. Throughout our history our allies and enemies alike have speculated that America is safe from outside aggression because of our right to carry. Our philosophical leaders have also long argued that our liberties are more secure from our own politicians because of the 2nd Amendment. The one sticking point has always been… but is there a negative correlation between crime and gun ownership? Well, the data that we have collected over the last 40 years should finally put this foolish notion to rest (at least for intellectually honest folks). The scientifically gathered, and closely studied data bears out the truth… when law-abiding citizens are free to own firearms, crime, particularly violent crime (including murder), becomes less pervasive.

To put it succinctly: More Guns, Less Crime.
