    They say that 7 cops and 44 citizens were killed by people with permits during a two year period.

    Here is the report (not hotlinked): vpc.org/studies/ccw2009.pdf

    It would be interesting if we could debunk any of the incidents, or if we could come up with some statistics showing that permit holders are less likely to shoot good guys than people without permits.

    I imagine this report is timed to effect the current debate over the amendment that would force states to recognize out of state permits.

    You are still MUCH more likely to be accidentally shot by the police than by a CCW holder.

    In this "report", are criminals counted as "Citizens"?

    How does that "shooting rate" compare to the general population? To all gun owners? How many shootings by non CCW holders in the same time period?

    Remember, there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.
