You’d have to be pretty dang stupid (or rigid) to think otherwise!
A study from the non-partisan National Bureau of Economic Research may show that the idea that bad guys don’t want to face armed citizens isn’t just a wild guess.
…“We find that burglaries increased in zip codes with fewer gun permits, and decreased in those with more gun permits, after the database was publicized,” the abstract reads.
… Still, the interesting point is that knowing that people in a given area had guns reduced burglaries in those neighborhoods.
Now, the anti-gun nutters can argue that sure, increased gun ownership led to reduced burglaries, but it led to MORE accidental deaths.
OK, fine. Show me the evidence that that is true. I’ll just wait…
