Heat Packers Bring Down Violence

What do anti-gun zealots have to say about this?

"Six years after new rules made it much easier to get a license to carry concealed weapons, the number of Michiganders legally packing heat has increased more than six-fold.

But dire predictions about increased violence and bloodshed have largely gone unfulfilled, according to law enforcement officials and, to the extent they can be measured, crime statistics. The incidence of violent crime in Michigan in the six years since the law went into effect has been, on average, below the rate of the previous six years. The overall incidence of death from firearms, including suicide and accidents, also has declined."

My hunch is they will just ignore it and go on being scared of all guns in any hands but the cops.

Libs refuse to listen to things like logic and reason and facts, relying instead on their childish emotions. Why anyone still pays any mind to what they think or say is beyond me. We shouldn’t let children make policy either.

What's funny is, I have read this same outcome several times. It's the same story, the location just changes. The same thing happened in Florida a few years ago. I have never heard of a state allowing it's citizens to exercise their constitutional rights and it backfired where they had to switch back because all the law abiding permit holders turned into criminals. I don't see why all these "educated" people are surprised.

I think we will be reading a similar story from Washington D.C. in a few years after the Supreme Court strikes down their unconstitutional gun ban. Everyone will be shocked there also. Never mid all the people who's constitutional rights were violated over the last 30 years...
