John R. Lott has debunked this false notion years ago with his scientific study and corresponding book, "More Guns, Less Crime," that proves the exact opposite:
This latest "study" is for the sole purpose of providing bogus talking points for members of Congress who oppose concealed carry, as a natl right to carry bill prepares to come up for debate, and is easily picked apart as others in this thread have already done.
Give everyone more guns. It's a proven method.
Once again, the data is very, very clear on this.
The definitive book that compiles decades of research and analysis, according to every expert, is right here if gungrabbers ever cared to look beyond their emotions and check out the facts...
But again, gun control advocates are not interested in data or facts or they wouldn't be gun control advocates! There is really no point in debating them with numbers, the only thing that works is to ridicule them and play their game of emotional arguments, which is why it is more effective to expose them as rape apologists who seek to leave women defenseless at the hands of sexual predators.
