    We always say that violent crime goes down in shall-issue states and I have access to the stats that show that a CHL holder in Texas is 7 times less likely to commit a crime but does anyone have any good sources that show a clear decrease in violent crime after a state became shall-issue? I'd like it for a debate that I'm sorta becoming involved in. Thanks.

    Get John Lott's book, "More Guns, Less Crime." That is precisely the information about which the whole book was written, taken from every county in the country.
