So violent crime and murder rates have dropped 50% and nobody is taking credit for that... Well I will tell you WHY there has been a 50% reduction in violent crime and murder in the US since 1992. Only one thing has changed from 1992 to present that would have a direct impact on violent crime and murder rates and that change is the dramatic increase in Shall Issue Concealed Carry Permits! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concealed_carry_in_the_United_States Florida started it off in 1987 and immediately saw that the issuance of Concealed Carry Permits actually reduced violent crime and murder rates. Other states followed with more and more states adopting Shall Issue Concealed Carry for its responsible, law abiding citizens. And thus began a trend of nearly all states adopting Shall Issue Concealed Carry for its citizens, (with the notable exceptions of those states like Illinois, New York, Washington DC and a few others) that brings us today to a 50% drop in violent crime and murder rates, making the United States 3 times safer than Gun Free, Not So Great Britain... ALL WHILE MILLIONS MORE GUNS have been manufactured and distributed into the hands of US citizens each year! Our violent crime rate would be EVEN SMALLER if we did not suffer from the lunatics in office who enact strict gun control in our big cities, causing murder rates to exceed bona fide war zones!
