Armed Citizens vs. Crime

. . .  he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. (Jesus of Nazareth, Luke 22:36)

Although it's dated, I'm sure the following quote reflects present realities, as well:

Law-abiding citizens in America used guns in self-defense 2.5 million times in 1993 (about 6,825 times per day), and actually shot and killed two and a half times as many criminals as police did (1,527 to 606). These self-defense shootings resulted in less than one-fifth as many incidents as police where an innocent person was mistakenly identified as a criminal (2 percent versus 11 percent). (Prof. Larry Bell as quoted by Pat 'Buchanan here)

As gun ownership increases, crime decreases. The gun control freaks just can't seem to figure out why.

To quote the theme from the old Dragnet show, "Dumb da dumb dumb . . . dumb da dumb dumb . . . DUMB!"
