    And yet the gun's are still in people's hand's and state's keep accepting concealed carry.

    Even if that has nothing to do with it it sure shows that it doesnt hurt.

    I think a graph of the National statistics versus the anti-gun cities/states (DC, IL, CA) would be pretty interesting.

    And here with every state that has approved CCW, the antis were screaming it would be like Dodge City out there, with shootouts at every traffic dispute.


    It looks to me like we're safer.

    I had this very discussion with an anti. I showed him the statistics. I showed him where CCW is associated with lower violent crime. He kept talking about all the bad things that could happen if people are allowed to carry guns. I said, "Some states have more than 10 years experience with CCW and those bad things haven't happened. Some states have more than 20 years and those bad things haven't happened."

    And he said, "They haven't happened yet."

    The antis are convinced that we're cheating -- that we want to do all those things, but are holding off just to make them look bad.:D
