New Study: More Carry Permits = Less Crime

NRA/ILAby NRA-ILA

new study by the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) finds that the number of people with concealed firearm carry permits has reached an all-time high, and that increasing the number of permit-holders is associated with a decrease in murder and total violent crime.

The study notes that the number of carry permit-holders has increased most sharply during the Obama administration, from 4.6 million in 2007 to over 12.8 million currently. Furthermore, coinciding with Pew Research Center polling finding that support for gun ownership and opposition to gun control is increasing among young people, minorities and women, the CPRC study found that carry permits are increasing more among minorities than among whites, and more among women than among men. Both sets of findings contradict gun control supporters’ claim that gun ownership is confined to elderly white males. Continue reading »

scc-logoIt’s nice, every now and then, to see that the entire MSM doesn’t have their craniums heaved up their gun-control colons.  The Las Vegas Review-Journal, for example, isn’t buying the gun-grabber propaganda.  Especially when it comes to the La-LaLand notion of “gun free zones” — a steaming heap of cosmetic placebo that has never saved so much as a single life.  Arming yourself, on the other hand, is the most effective method of keeping yourself and those around you safe.  Period.

But that doesn’t fit the MSM/gun-grabber narrative, does it?  There’s a reason why you’ve never heard about the shooting that happened at the Appalachian School of Law in 2002 (care to guess what it is?)

Law-abiding citizens shouldn’t be defenseless on college campuses

LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

Since the mass shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007, in which 32 students and faculty members were killed and an additional 17 were wounded, gun-rights activists have pushed to allow concealed carry on college campuses. Unfortunately, that push has been widely lambasted by the media and ignored by lawmakers and higher education officials — while shootings in gun-free zones continue at schools large and small.

Paging Captain Obvious…

The news is saturated with stories and opinions on guns, and the attention on the issue is heightened with this past year’s dramatic shootings in Aurora and Newtown. Understandably, the response to these horrors involves great emotion. However, in our dialogue about violence and gun ownership, we need to set aside our fears and biases and look at where the facts lead us.

Here in the Bay Area, the general response to gun ownership is an automatic “no,” and the Stanford campus is no exception. Our campus sees minimal violence and our main exposure to firearms is through the news, where killings are stories rather than the cases with peaceful endings.

Here’s a little something for everyone who’s getting bored as hell with the old “you don’t need a gun to [insert mundane activity here].”  Here’s a little secret for all the gun grabbers out there: We don’t want guns so we can go shopping.  We have a right to guns because of what can happen on the way to or from… well, anyplace, really.

Don’t believe me?  Read on…

May issue laws an abuse just waiting to happen

For years now, all of us have known quite well that anything even remotely resembling “may issue” permit laws is a recipe for cronyism, bribes and corruption of all flavours.  Now we have even more proof, in the unfolding of the latest chapter of Liberal party slime and sleaze currently playing itself out in Quebec.  Continue reading »
