Criminologist and researcher Gary Kleck, using his own commissioned phone surveys and number extrapolation, estimates that Americans use guns for defensive purposes 1.2 million times each year — and that 1 in 6 Americans who have used guns defensively believe someone would have died but for their ability to resort to their defensive use of firearms.
Twenty years ago economist John Lott, author of "More Guns, Less Crime," and his research partner wrote: "We find that allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons deters violent crimes and it appears to produce no increase in accidental deaths. If those states which did not have right-to-carry concealed gun provisions had adopted them in 1992, approximately 1,570 murders; 4,177 rapes; and over 60,000 aggravated assaults would have been avoided yearly."
The Democrats arent looking for actual solutions, they are doing what they always do, using tragic circumstances to push an agenda that will benefit them and nobody else. The Democrat leading presidential candidate was zero for two in even remembering where either of the recent shooting happened. He was too busy drooling on himself over this new opportunity to show hes every bit the leftist dolt these other creeps are.
