"Gun Violence to Increase"

That's what the anti-gun fools say as state after state legalizes the carrying of guns by law-abiding people. And, surprisingly, it's true—IF you use the anti-gun fool definition of “gun violence” as ANY use of a gun, even in self defense. What is going to increase, at least for a while, is the instances of law-abiding people killing “bad guys” who try to victimize them. Studies have shown that bad guys who have been killed don't shoot too many people in the future. So, much to the chagrin of the bad guys, such killings are going to increase—for a while, at least, until many of the bad guys are dead or in prison for long stretches. And with most of the people who use guns for crime are dead or in prison, crime generally will go down. Certain anti-gun cops will fight it, tooth and nail, even to the extent of charging people who shoot home invaders and other crooks in self defense with a crime. Anti-gun police politicians—usually the higher-ranking officers, are doing all they can to discourage citizens from using their LEGAL guns in self defense. But the rank and file, who are actually “in the trenches,” mostly disagree. (Just common sense)
