What a shame that so many Americans are mislead andmisinformed about the truth of how firearms, especially in an open carry manner, have a direct impact on the rate of violent crime. If citizens want totrust what they hear from the government, asthey seem to indicate, then they should yield to the report released by the FBI based on actual crime in all 50 states. Each year the federal government does numerous surveys to establish how certain elements in our society effect crime. One of these reports focuses on how The Right To Carry firearms decreases violent crime.Again, thestatistical dataI'm about to post are quotes from the FBI and not from a pro gun, or other entity dedicated to the defense of the 2nd amendment.
According to a report released from the Federal Bureau of Investigation ( FBI ), the right to carry firearms in those states allowing such has decreased by, not only noticeable numbers, but by extreme rates that clearly indicate the positive effect created by this element of choice allocated in those states. Further more at the time of this report there were currently 38RTC states. The larger number of RTC states, 38,not only shows the positive effect of RTC, but as well provides a better number to acquire or calculatethe real effect, and makes it nearly impossible to manipulate the survey results, not a likelymaneuver to expectfrom the feds. though.Now that I feel I have established that the feds were absolutely non biased in their report and how it was generated I'll continue with the numbers.
In RTC states, 38 in all at the time of this report, violent crime was comparably lower that in states not allowing RTC.
*Aggravated Assault down 13.9%
*Robbery down 43%
*Murder down 28%
*Total overallviolent crime down 21% in RTC states!
In a city for example such as Los Angles, where murder alone is over 1000 annually, we would be seeing a reduction of approximately 280 lives saved. It's quite apparent that guns don't inspire crime but, in fact help to diminish it, and very quickly start toshow their positive effect. We will always have individuals who abuse their rights, its always been that way. But we can't base our laws and rights on the very small number of those who aren't responsible enough to accept responsibility for their actions. Whether it be an automobile, air plane, gun, or other privilege we are extended, some will abuse or fail to demonstrate their ability to safely operate an automobile or other device. Do we out law automobiles in the US because of the large number of those who abuse the privilege to drive costibng human life at an alarming rate? Of course not, instead we impose severe penalties for failing to operate within the laws. Even though automobiles kill an extreme greater number of people than guns could ever in the US, we still don't out law automobiles. One could argue that automobiles are a necessary part of our modern society, and guns are not. But that isn't at all accurate when you consider the lives that are saved the direct result of carrying a gun as described above!
