Not surprised.

If a criminal has an IQ larger than their shoe size they should consider that some people (perhaps many) might have concealed guns.
If they're still so stupid as to commit a crime, then they're just darwin award wannabes.

Personally I think we should carry them old west style, in holsters in plain sight.
I'm sure the crime rate would drop even more.

Personally I would like to see that US Americans keep nuclear weapons at home as a defence against burglars. But for now, going back to the good old Western style would suffice. The Wild West was such a civilised place. In fact I am going to open a franchise of coffin maker's workshops. Wildhorse Western Coffins.

Insufficient data. Has concealed carry been increasing for the past 20 years?

Wow!

I have never seen this idiotic survey in support of gun rights (or for anything else for that matter).

Why can't America ban guns like the rest of the developed world?

Because we are smarter than those countries. We pay attention to cause and effect.

On a related note. Its legal to carry a concealed weapon in a Liquor Establishment as long as your sober. Guess what? If a bar fight breaks out, all the sober guy has to do is stand up, and every thing gets real calm.

There's always somebody who has has a few too many and turns into Yosemite Sam, though, although that's usually with a knife or their fists.

You're probably not using your holes right. That's what all religions boil down to, really, if you think about it: using your holes right.

But, with multiple upper lips, I suppose you're going to sound like that sometimes.

So if a person possesses "sober" they can carry a concealed weapon in a liquor establishment?
