Armed Citizens Have Reduced Gun Crime Rate

A headline at the Daily Caller reads; “Gun crime continues to decrease, despite increase in gun sales” as if the expected outcome of more guns is more gun crime. What it should read is; “Gun crime continues to decrease, because of the increase in gun sales.”

It has been shown time and again that an increase in gun ownership results in a lower rate of gun (and most other) crime because criminals don’t know who is armed and who is not. People in Texas are less likely to be the victims of crime than are the people of Massachusetts or Maryland because people in Texas own (and carry) weapons. Their state does not infringe upon the people’s rights like other states.

People are victims of crime because their government enables criminals and places citizens at a disadvantage. After all, when seconds count the police are only minutes away.

Liberals will ignore the facts and discount the reality that more guns means less crime. That has been shown in many states where guns are readily available and where lots of people own them and liberals still don’t get it.

No, it will no doubt be attributed to Obama and his leadership.

Come to think of it, more people own guns because of Obama so maybe he is responsible for the decrease in crime.

Cave canem!

    The true danger here is our government owning guns-aka the fast & furious debacle.
    I still don’t see why Eric Holder et al haven’t been strung up by their nutsacks – they have been responsible for at least two murders of law enforcement members. In normal times, that would mean a ride on ol’ sparky, or Jesus juice.
