I agree. Loosening gun laws doesn't automatically mean everyone has a gun and it doesn't automatically mean the criminals are going after armed people. The chances of two unlike events occuring together are extremely unlikely.
Just as an example. If any given person has a 1/10,000 chance of being thetarget of a crime in a given year, and the chances of any given person being someone that carries is 1% (1/100), then the chances of being a crime target in a year, given that you're carryingare astronomically small, namely: 1/100,000,000 (feel free to check my math, but I'm pretty sure it's right) You might be better off playing the lottery.
