Gun Ownership Reduces Crime

A recent commentary by Ronald G. Manoni on points out some good facts. Please read his article for the full details.
  1. Less that 1% of crimes using guns are obtained at gun shows, while 39.2% are purchased from illegal street dealers.
  2. There is no connection with the effectiveness of firearms laws and violent gun crimes.
  3. Guns are used 65 times more often to prevent a crime than commit one.

“While gun ownership has soared, violent crim has dropped… private ownership of guns reduces crime.”
