    Gun Owners safer than Non-Gun Owners & Law Enforcement Officers

    Makes a lot of sense to me.

    In July, the Crime Prevention Research Center published a comprehensive report on those Americans who hold concealed-carry permits. Among the findings, the Center notes that while the police are dramatically more law-abiding than the population as a whole (37 times more law-abiding), permit holders in Texas and Florida — two states that keep comprehensive records — were even more law-abiding than cops. Police officers committed crimes at a rate of 103 crimes per 100,000 officers. Permit holders in Texas and Florida committed crimes at a rate of 22.3 per 100,000.

    Hmmm? That's one of those statistics, on paper, that could be read a lot of different ways. From my own experience I tend to agree with it though.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Of course. Once you start carrying, the advantages in self confidence and relaxed attitude become so apparent that no one wants to risk their license-to-carry by committing some stupid infraction of the law. Also, being armed holds you to a higher standard. You are more likely to be a peacemaker than a hellraiser.

    This also deflates liberal arguments about more guns more crime.
    We have a four box system,the soap box,the ballet box,the jury box and the cartridge box!
