Leftist Narrative Gutted as Handgun Murders Drop Once States Allow Constitutional Carry

By now you’ve heard the narrative so often, you probably have it memorized: Guns cause crime. More regulation and layers of laws are the go-to “solutions?after every tragedy. But does it work?

The data says no. In fact, the violent crime rate in America has dropped dramatically since 1990 even while gun ownership and concealed carry permits surged. Now, yet another key data point suggests that “common sense gun laws?may not make so much “sense?after all.

As Breitbart News journalist AWR Hawkins recently pointed out, a dozen states now allowed “permitless carry,?which means that any law-abiding citizen can carry a concealed handgun without an additional license.

Letting Americans exercise the Second Amendment without state permission? The horrors! If you bought into liberal anti-gun narratives, the only possible result is Wild West lawlessness and people shooting their grandmothers.

No. Actually, violent crime is taking a nosedive.

“There are currently 12 states where the Second Amendment is the only concealed carry permit a resident needs: Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, West Virginia, Wyoming, and Vermont,?Hawkins explained.

“And FBI crime stats for Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming ?three states that abolished their permit requirements years ago ?show that murders with handguns decreased once the permit requirement was eradicated.?br />


With all the evidence showing that more guns in the hands of responsible citizens are linked to less crime, you’d think more liberals would be open-minded about the prospect. After all, it’s the left that claims to champion data-driven decisions and the scientific method.

When trend lines clearly suggest that concealed carry doesn’t lead to murder but often prevents it, why would those data-loving liberals keep putting their feet down?

The answer, frustratingly, might be that gun control has always been less about the guns and more about control. When it comes to liberty, however, more and more states are realizing that the Constitution is all the concealed carry permit they need.

The left has been flogging their gunsareevil narrative for so long, they wouldn't even know how to stop. And without a new argument, the truth won't even slow them down.

I recall seeing a Professor of Statistics presenting the results of his study to congress on C-SPAN way back in the mid-late 90s. Really big charts and graphs that could not be refuted that showed before and after comparisons. In every single instance and in every conceivable "what if" scenario where a right to carry law was enacted there was a significant (greater 90%) drop in violent and gun related crimes. So this is nothing new. But "assault" and "military style"weapons are very scary.
