This is some clever wording. One hundred people have been killed by holders of handgun-carry permits since 2007. But how many of those were suicides, how many of those were lawful self-defense shootings, how many of those police officers who had a handgun-carry permit and shot a criminal doing something heinous?A Violence Policy Center project has mined news reports to find that more than 100 people have been killed by holders of handgun-carry permits since 2007, including nine law enforcement officers. The project originally intended to list all gun crimes by permit holders, but there were too many to keep track of, Rand said.
"They shoot each other over parking spaces, at football games and at family events," Rand said. "The idea that you're making any place safer by injecting more guns is just completely contradicted by the facts."
I'm guessing once you take away those numbers the number drops dramatically. Anti-gun people never take out the suicides when they talk about people getting killed with guns, they love including them.
