Concealed Permit Holders Least Likely To Commit Crimes

No kidding.

Stuff you won't hear in the media about guns much less among progressives and left-wing academics:

“We find that permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth the rate for police officers,” the report says. “Among police, firearms violations occur at a rate of 16.5 per 100,000 officers. Among permit holders in Florida and Texas, the rate is only 2.4 per 100,000.10. That is just one-seventh of the rate for police officers.”

Crime Prevention Research Center President John Lott, a noted economist, said the finding is not surprising considering the rigorous process it takes to get a concealed-carry permit.

“The type of person that would go through the process, one in which you can often lose the license for fairly trivial offenses,” Lott told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. “They are reluctant to use the the guns in a wrong way because they have a lot to lose if they do something wrong.”

No surprise here.. Since I've been blogging this is pretty much in line with what I've learned and researched over the years.

Gun control advocates rely on misrepresentation of facts and are deceitful about what their end game is.

Americans should fight to the end defending the Second Amendment. The mere fact the government and progressives want it so bad to the point of revisionism should be enough for skeptical people to protect its rights to bear arms.


I submit one small, insignificant but telling assertion about how full of shit people like Bloomberg and his cohorts on the left are.

They're more than willing to go after foods alleged to be bad for people under the guise of protecting them. From sodas to sugar from salt to cigarettes from guns to whatever - they have selected the stuff they don't like.

But ask them to go after coffee, booze and gambling.

Different ball game because A) they fucking love coffee and B) plenty of cronies to protect with alcohol and gambling.

Never mind politics has its fair share of drug users and sexual abusers. 

They go after the shit that doesn't affect them.

And even if it does, they have all the connections in the world to avoid or evade them. Think Canadian politicians who don't wait in the the health care queue while convincing the rest of the population it's good for them.

Eat your pablum folks. 

I have no problem calling them out for their outright hypocrisy and bull shit.
