More Guns, Less Crime
It has long been predicted by people who have “no axe to grind,” that more guns in the hands of honest. dependable people will cause a reduction in violent crime. “First, the number of guns has risen to an all-time high. Second, for decades Brady Campaign has repeatedly predicted with unfettered confidence that more guns would necessarily cause crime to rise. But third, the nation's violent crime and murder rates have instead fallen to 35- and 45-year lows, respectively.” (NRA-ILA). The proof is in the pudding, and the pudding is that as the number of guns increases, violent crime reduces. They can’t factually deny that, though they rail futilely against it.
