What are crime rates for persons with licensed carry permits?
A concealed handgun permit (CHP) is issued only to persons 21 and over. Roughly speaking, among the Colorado population 21 and over, an adult with a concealed handgun permit is about 39 times less likely to be arrested than an adult without a CHP. The data are as follows.

Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year, or 6,849 every day. Most often, the gun is never fired, and no blood (including the criminal’s) is shed.
Every year, 400,000 life-threatening violent crimes are prevented using firearms.
60 percent of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they knew the victim was armed. Forty percent of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they thought the victim might be armed.

BET SHEMESH, ISRAEL—Investigators working with the Israel Antiquities Authority have claimed David used an illegal "ghost" sling in his famous battle with Goliath. Experts allege the ghost sling would have been untraceable, which would account for why Goliath was caught off guard so easily.

"Goliath, a man who stood about 7'10" by modern reckoning, would not have been defeated so easily if David had a legal sling registered with the proper authorities," said Dr. Phil Gath, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. "David probably used a 3D printer or something, maybe he just stole some leather and grabbed some stones to put something together himself. We're not sure where the sling came from."

As the Crime Prevention Research Center has pointed out many, many times, television crime shows seem to think criminals are constantly using machine guns to commit crime. In real life, criminals generally use machine guns so rarely that a 2016 survey of prison inmates only broke down the numbers for uses in crime of handguns (11.2%), rifles (0.8%), and shotguns (1.1%). There are few rifles, and the survey did not even mention fully automatic weapons. A similar finding is available from the FBI UCR report where 2.6% of all murders involve rifles of any type and 0.3% of all murders involve unspecified “other guns.” There is a reason for that. Since 1934, there was only one possible known use ever of a civilian using a machine gun in a murder. And even before 1934, they were very rare.

Remington had previously proposed a $33 million settlement, but a lawyer for the victims’ families stated that they ultimately agreed to $73 million.

“To be clear, pro-gun activists don’t disagree with us because they actually believe we want to take their guns away,” Watts wrote. “They hate us because we’re women.”

Secretary of State Jena Griswold outlined a 2022 legislative agenda that focuses on increased protections for election workers and safety at physical voting locations as the state, like most of the country, experiences an uptick of harassment towards election officials.

“Our system works. But across the nation, American democracy is facing unprecedented risks,” she said during a press conference on Tuesday.

She pointed to the U.S. Senate’s failure to pass voting rights legislation earlier this year, an increase in voting restriction legislation across the country and the rise in elected officials who promote the conspiracy that the 2020 election was stolen as examples of those risks.

The legislation in question created civil fines and misdemeanor penalties for parents or guardians whose minors gain illegal access to their firearms. The only exception is in the case of burglary. This bill also features a provision that allows parents to take other parents to court to slap the $1,000 fine on them if they launch allegations of a minor gaining access to their firearms.

The ATF disclosed to lawmakers that it manages a database of 920,664,765 firearm purchase records, including both digital and hard copy versions of these transactions.

With violent crime soaring over the last two years, Americans want a solution. Over and over, President Joe Biden and gun control advocates frame violent crime as a gun problem. Relying on public health researchers, articles such as this one in the Atlantic and in local news stories this week point to increasing gun sales as the cause. But reported gun crimes fell in 2020, so the writers ignore the obvious explanation for rising crime, that law enforcement isn’t being allowed to do its job.

Gun sales increased dramatically in 2020 before receding some in 2021. Background checks on gun sales soared from 12.4 million in 2019 to 20.3 million in 2020 and declining back to 17.6 million in 2021. Meanwhile, murder and aggravated assaults rose in 2020. In 2020, they increased double-digit rates (29% for murder and 12% for aggravated assaults).

To many, the connection seems obvious. Gun sales increased, and murder and aggravated assaults rose, though robberies fell.

Reporter Steve Keeley: An 18-year-old shows up and points a gun, taps a gun muzzle on the window of the car. What he doesn’t know is what a lot of robbers and carjackers are finding out, that a lot more people these days are going to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon because of the crime situation that is out of control, particularly in Philadelphia.

From Fox 29 Philadelphia: Police say a driver turned the tables on an armed carjacking suspect in North Philadelphia Monday night when he shot the suspect multiple times with a firearm he was licensed to carry. Officials said a 32-year-old healthcare worker pulled up in front of a home on the 1700 block of West Folsom Street, Monday night, just before midnight. He was in possession of a valid license-to-carry and pulled a firearm, shooting at the 18-year-old through his window and striking the 18-year-old.

Mexico is going to have to answer a few basic questions when their lawyers finally step in front of a judge to claim that U.S.-based manufacturers are somehow responsible for their own lack of law enforcement on their side of the border.

First question: where are all the firearms that went missing from the Mexican military? That would be those firearms supplied by U.S. manufacturers pursuant to U.S. State Department-approved export licenses to meet foreign defense contracts but have somehow walked off Mexican military bases.

Gun-control advocates keep making the same predictions of doom and bloodshed from law-abiding citizens having guns for protection. They warn us of pending disaster if Nebraska becomes the 22nd state to adopt so-called Constitutional Carry rules that would allow law-abiding adults who legally own a handgun to conceal-carry it without a permit. Thirty-four states already allow open carry without a permit.

Nebraska and other states faced the same predictions of disaster when they first adopted right-to-carry laws, which now exist in 43 states. None of the dire predictions came true. These predictions are occurring again when states adopted Constitutional Carry. But not a single one of these states has seen the need to reverse the laws. Indeed, none have even held a legislative hearing on undoing these laws, let alone a vote. And all but one of Nebraska’s neighbors already have Constitutional Carry.

Mexico has a lot of explaining to do when it comes to the lawsuit that it’s filing against American manufacturers.

In its lawsuit, the Mexican government alleges that American firearms manufacturers are responsible for the country’s rampant crime. The Mexican government’s assertion that American firearms are solely responsible for its instability ignores a lot of the home-brewed institutional rot present in the country.

The supermarket tabloids were right – the rich and famous ARE just like us. Crime has increased throughout the country. All anyone – from struggling single parents to ultra-wealthy Hollywood elites – wants is a chance to defend themselves and their loved ones. Evidence from the last two years, and the last few months in particular, shows that the 2nd Amendment is not bound by socio-economic status.

LA Magazine ran an article documenting the “Arms Race of the Affluent” as violent home invasions, robberies, and other crime increase in the exclusive suburbs of Los Angeles. Beverly Hills Guns owner Russell Stuart reported most of his daily stream of customers are arming themselves for the first time.

A standard talking point of gun prohibitionists is that in these modern times, ordinary people don’t need their own firearms because the police will protect them from criminals. Last year, no less than David Chipman, President Biden’s failed nominee to lead the ATF– employed then as as a senior policy advisor for the Giffords anti-gun group – mocked first-time gun owners as delusional because the “zombies” weren’t about to attack.

That argument, specious at best, is even less compelling now, when law enforcement resources are stretched to the breaking point and beyond due to the combined impact of factors like “defund the police,” a sharp rise in violent crime, and, in many jurisdictions, employee vaccine mandates that have resulted in thousands of first responders resigning, being placed on unpaid leave or fired.

Think of the foremost applications of a firearm. Self-defense and protection have become the primary motivation for Americans’ acquisition of firearms, but the prevalence of defensive gun use remains disputed. New research, conducted in support of a brief for the Supreme Court, offers more evidence that a large number of Americans have used a firearm to defend themselves, their loved ones, or their property.

Professor William English offered this summary of his research in his brief:

“Based on a comprehensive online survey of 16,708 adult firearms owners – an unprecedented sample size in the area of scholarly firearms policy research – amicus English recently and reliably concluded that lawful carriage of firearms for self-defense and defensive gun use are statistically common phenomena. In fact, a majority of the over 80 million adult firearms owners in the United States carry a handgun for self-defense under at least some circumstances.

We mentioned a Beverly Hills gun shop last week in an article about the continued increase in background checks and gun sales. We spoke with the proprietor of that shop, and he offered a very humanized take on a story often told with large numbers and broad strokes concepts.

Russell Stuart is the owner of Beverly Hills Guns. Stuart has appeared in several media interviews in the last few weeks, perhaps because his shop sits in one of the most exclusive zip codes in the country. Beverly Hills may seem an unlikely place for a gun shop to thrive, given the state’s zealously anti-gun policies and the perception of the city’s residents as wealthy celebrities in gated communities. Beverly Hills, like a lot of other areas, is suffering from an increase in crime. The glitz and glamor Beverly Hills make for a clickbait headline but gun stores serve a real need, and shops in seemingly unlikely places offer an opportunity to grow our community.

For years, the corporate press has attempted to convince people that gun control is overwhelmingly supported by the public and its passage is an inevitability. But when such measures are not passed, the gun controllers will blame the evil gun control lobby for throwing a wrench in their plans.

Perhaps, the reason we only see radical gun control passed in solid blue states is the fact that there are vast swathes of the American population — regardless of their partisan affiliation, race, creeds, socio-economic status, etc. — who support the right to bear arms, or at least are not down with radical leaps towards civilian disarmament.

This is the season of holiday festivities, family gatherings, and retrospectives. We don’t operate on seasons, though. Gun owners didn’t wait for a holiday to air their grievances; they took every opportunity to let their legislators and the ATF know where they stood on infringement. Americans exercised their 2nd Amendment rights every day. This isn’t hyperbole – we leave that to the experts – but statements based on data and reality.

Nearly 36 million law-abiding Americans gifted themselves a NICS background check in the first 11 months of 2021. We’re probably not going to break the record for most NICS checks in a year that we set last year (with 39,695,315 checks) but we’ll likely get close. This year is already the second-busiest year ever for the NICS office…and has been for several months.

In a single issue in March of 1961, Guns & Ammo ran ads for a “Sniper Model” Enfield Match rifle, a French 8mm machine gun (“used in two World Wars”), a Mannlicher military pistol, a U.S. .30 M1 carbine, and a police-ordnance Ingram Model 6 submachine gun chambered in .45 ACP (only $49.95!). If you’re surprised that these machine guns and high-powered military rifles were marketed to hunters in the 1960s, you might have unconsciously accepted a flawed but popular narrative about American gun culture.

According to this story, gun owners have only recently become “militarized,” thanks to the machinations of the National Rifle Association and its infamous leader, Wayne LaPierre. That military-style attitude has further resulted in a recalcitrant stance toward gun control and an obsession with armed self-defense.

The price of Russian-made, usually steel-cased ammunition went up overnight with the Sept. 7 U.S. State Department announcement that new or pending applications for its importation will be denied. Although officially labeled as an expansion of sanctions in response to alleged violation of the “Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991,” industry experts warn stateside gun owners are the real victims.

Ammunition manufactured in the Russian Federation is an inexpensive and reliable alternative, often the first choice for budget-conscious enthusiasts who shoot in high volume. The number of steel casings at any range confirm that fact, and it won’t be long until those gun owners will be purchasing other brands—your favorite loads among them.

Television show bias against guns is never ending. You won’t see an entertainment television show that has a civilian successfully using a gun defensively. Instead, something always seems to go wrong when guns are used defensively (from being fatally shot by the criminal without stopping the crime to getting in the way of police to continually having the gun stolen and use in a crime to it being used in an accidental shooting), and this episode of CBS’ SWAT is no different (Season 5, Episode 6, November 12, 2021). In this episode, right after a pro-gun woman explains that not having a concealed handgun with you leaves you as a sitting duck, a group of armed men attack the television studio that she is in. When she pulls out her gun to stop the attack, she is fatally shot. The lesson is clearly that she would have been safer if she simply didn’t have a gun.

If a woman is being stalked or threatened, she may not have time to wait for a license.

Unfortunately, to make matters even worse, Alabama stopped issuing permits at the end of December due to “technical issues.” While the problem only lasted a couple of days, it illustrates a problem that can happen during emergencies, precisely the time when people might need to be able to protect themselves and their families the most.

A new poll by the Trafalgar Group of 1,076 likely general election voters from December 17th to the 21st shows that large numbers of likely Democrat, Republican, and independent voters find strict gun laws ineffective or even harmful. While a plurality thinks that gun control laws make no difference, voters are more than twice as likely to think that strict gun control laws make crime worse than make things better.

Even though Democrats are most sympathetic to gun control, only 30.1% of them think that gun control is making the current surge in crime better. That compares to only 7.3% of Republicans and 9.8% of Independents. The survey results are interesting, but they would be even more useful if they asked people about violent crime generally and not retail crime.

The same predictions of doom and bloodshed keep coming from gun-control activists. They warn us of pending disaster should Pennsylvania become the 22nd state to adopt so-called constitutional carry rules that would allow law-abiding adults who legally own a handgun to conceal-carry it without a permit. Thirty-four states, including Pennsylvania, already allow open carry without a permit.

On December 12, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that he plans on using a polemical U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Texas’ strict abortion law as the basis for creating a law that would let private citizens file lawsuits against gun manufacturers, distributors, and sellers.

Last week, the Supreme Court kept a Texas law in place that allows private citizens to file lawsuits against individuals who carry out or assist a woman in obtaining an abortion after roughly six weeks of pregnancy.

The City Attorney’s Office is trying to crack down on the flow of “ghost guns” in Denver, introducing a proposal to the City Council on Wednesday that would make owning the non-serialized firearms illegal.

Ghost guns are homemade firearms that don’t have serial numbers or markings, meaning they can’t be tracked to their maker, seller or original owner. They are often made by buying pre-made parts and assembling them at home, or by 3D-printing non-serialized parts.

City Attorney Kristin Bronson said this allows minors and people with criminal records to get guns without background checks. Without a serial number, ghost guns also make it more difficult to solve crimes and get insight into gun trafficking patterns.

Gun-control advocates keep making the same predictions of doom and bloodshed from law-abiding citizens having guns for protection. They warn us of pending disaster if Florida becomes the 22nd state to adopt so-called constitutional carry rules that would allow law-abiding adults who legally own a handgun to conceal-carry it without a permit. Thirty-four states already allow open carry without a permit.

Florida and other states faced the same predictions of disaster when they first adopted right-to-carry laws, which now exist in 43 states. None of the dire predictions came true. These predictions occurred again after states adopted Constitutional carry. But not a single one of these states has seen the need to reverse the laws. Indeed, none have even held a legislative hearing on undoing these laws, let alone a vote.

You would never know it from the reaction of President Biden and Governor Gavin Newsom, but the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Friday about the Texas abortion case didn’t overturn Roe v. Wade. It dealt with arcane legal precedent over who can sue and be sued – what is called “standing” – and the constitutionality of Texas’ law is far from settled. Hopefully, on Saturday, because Newsom hadn’t yet read or understood the decision, he announced that he would now use the ruling to help Californians enforce gun control laws.



Biden and Newsom’s comments are more likely to gin up anger by their supporters than have anything to do with the Supreme Court or the law.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday pledged to empower private citizens to enforce a ban on the manufacture and sale of assault weapons in the state, citing the same authority claimed by conservative lawmakers in Texas to outlaw most abortions once a heartbeat is detected.

California has banned the manufacture and sale of many assault-style weapons for decades. A federal judge overturned that ban in June, ruling it was unconstitutional and drawing the ire of the state's Democratic leaders by comparing the popular AR-15 rifle to a Swiss Army knife as "good for both home and battle."

Extreme risk protection order (ERPO) laws, sometimes known as gun violence restraining order or “red-flag” laws, are risk-based, temporary, and preemptive protective orders that authorize the removal of firearms from individuals determined to be at risk for committing gun violence against others or themselves.[1] With ERPO laws in place, law enforcement, family members, or medical professionals can petition a court to temporarily restrict a person’s access to firearms if they believe that person is at risk of hurting him or herself or others. ERPO laws differ from prohibited purchaser regulations that prevent specific groups of individuals—such as those with a criminal record, those with a history of domestic abuse, or those who have been dishonorably discharged from the military—from owning, purchasing, or possessing firearms. They also differ from laws that require the removal of firearms from prohibited possessors (see our analysis of surrender of firearms by prohibited possessors)

This case may be officially about concealed handgun laws, but it could have much more significant implications than just concealed handgun laws. Part of the oral arguments dealt with how courts should evaluate Second Amendment cases. For example, should they use strict or intermediate scrutiny? These are different types of so-called “balancing tests.” When the First Amendment says Congress shall pass no law, balancing tests allow the courts to interpret that as saying Congress shall pass no law unless the courts think they have a good reason to. Or should they follow Scalia’s lead in Heller and follow the bright lines laid down in The Bill of Rights. Kavanaugh seemed skeptical of letting the courts use balancing tests. If the Supreme Court adopted a bright-line rule and not a balancing test, that would be a truly significant win for the Second Amendment. Indeed, possibly all of The Bill of Rights.

The left-leaning National Law Journal, a business partner with Michael Bloomberg, is unwilling to respond to repeated requests to correct the record on these extreme inaccuracies, so we are publishing our response here at Townhall.

The deep dive by the nation's highest court comes at a time of rising crime rates in parts of the country, and politically-charged calls for major law enforcement reforms, including "defunding the police."

The Supreme Court looked poised on Wednesday to strike down New York’s restrictions on the concealed carry of firearms, a victory for Second Amendment rights.

The justices heard arguments over New York’s "proper cause" rule, which requires residents to prove a special need for self-protection to obtain a concealed carry license. The conservative justices were troubled at the wide degree of discretion New York’s rules give law enforcement in granting the permits.

Gun ownership requires quite a bit of overall responsibility. This is a welcome opportunity for many to learn the many Federal, and more importantly, local laws concerning firearm use. Purchase and carry laws, as well as registration varies from state to state, and in many cases, may even be reciprocal from one area to another. Some states even have differences in laws from one county to another, so it is very important to pay close attention to your rights to avoid creating a scenario which could result in a question of your ability to own a gun.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, the number of concealed handgun permits has soared to over 21.52 million – a 48% increase since 2016. It’s also a 10.5% increase over the number of permits we counted a year ago in 2020. Unlike gun ownership surveys that may be affected by people’s unwillingness to answer personal questions, concealed handgun permit data is the only really “hard data” that we have. This increase occurred despite 21 Constitutional Carry states that no longer provide data on all those legally carrying a concealed handgun because people in those states no longer need a permit to carry.
