Shoot Burglars, Fewer Burglaries

Whoda thunkit? Shoot a few burglars and the number of burglaries go down. Surprise, surprise! Anti-gun fools say it isn’t so. But it is. Just as shooting more violent criminals makes for fewer violent crimes. Not because more criminals are killed, but because other criminals go into other lines of work. Anti-gun fools deny that, too. But reality is intruding faster and faster on the world of “anti-gun fantasy.” Soon, they’re not going to be able to deny it. But they will. People keep missing the point as reporters write things like, “Crime Drops In Spite of More People In Prison.” The headline should be “Crime Drops BECAUSE of More People In Prison.” A classic example of “a missed point” is this line from one article: “The number of inmates in state and federal prisons rose 2.1 percent last year, even as violent crime and property crime fell, according to a study by the Justice Department released yesterday.” They just can’t believe maybe prison population is increasing BECAUSE more criminals are in prison and others are re-evaluating their career choice.
