This is dishonest bullshit.

Camden, New Jersey, is notorious for being a murder capital of thr US.

Newark, fucking Newark, is were people go to get shot.

None of the people doing the killing in Camden, Newark, or Trenton are licensed permit holders.

New Jersey has some of the most violent cities in America, but this fuck can say with a straight face that New Jersey has low rates of gun crime.

New Jersey politicians hate guns and will hold any position that allows them to continue to ban them.

AG Foreskin mentioned a Rand study.

I looked it up.

Effects of Concealed-Carry Laws on Violent Crime

Summary: There is supportive evidence that shall-issue concealed-carry laws may increase total and firearm homicides. Evidence for the effect of permitless-carry laws on total homicides is inconclusive. Evidence that shall-issue concealed-carry laws may increase violent crime is limited.

I read the study.

It’s runny dog shit, and I will probably go into greater detail of just how much of a runny, carpet staining, dog shit study it is in a later post.

But suffice it to say, it’s a meta study that shows no correlation between permit holders and shootings.

That is the key takeaway that gets ignored.

Many states have gone shall issue in the last 20 years.

Millions of guns have been sold over the last 20 years.  It’s obvious some of those guns have ended up in the hands of criminals.

A state going shall issue doesn’t increase crime. It’s not an effect.  It’s not as though people get carry permits so they can rib liquor stores with licensed guns.

It’s that crime is going up and concealed carry doesn’t much tamp it down.

Considering that violent crime is spiking I’m major urban areas that are becoming more and more concentrated Blue, and people that vote Blue are less likely to carry permits, you can end up with this correlating.

Think of Illinois.  Illinois went shall issue.

Gun crime is going up in Chicago because the mayor and prosecutor refuse to punish gang and gun crimes.

The Red counties of the rest of the state are where most of the carry permits are possessed.

So you can simultaneously have an increase in shall issue permits and crime that have nothing to do with one another.

But that level of analysis doesn’t matter to the lying political shit-stains who hate guns.

I hope SCOTUS comes back around and fucking hammers these states for not complying with the intention of the Bruen decision.

  1. ALL of their ‘studies’ are weak correlations, manipulated numbers, truncated quotes, and outright fabrications.

  2. “That’s what opponents of our concealed carry laws want.”

    Or, we want to be left alone if we’re not harming anyone.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
