Are concealed carry laws the best deterent for crime?

Concealed carry laws are shown to be the only policy to deter mass murderers.

States that allowed citizens to carry concealed handguns reduced multiple-shooting attacks by 60 percent and reduced the death and injury from these attacks by nearly 80 percent.

  • And what percentage of violent crime is mass murder? A very small percentage. I would like to see statistics on concealed carry and other crimes such as muggings, sexual assault, etc.

  • Hmmm, I'm guessing mass murderers are mentally ill and probably didn't check to see if their states allowed people to carry guns before going postal (no offense to any actual postal workers).

    I'm sure they deter some crime. But not sure they are the "best."

  • Crimes will still be committed no matter what kind of laws there are because most people who commit crimes break laws. Most people who conceal a weapon are criminals.

    Crimes will still happen but if you had read the link you would see lawful citizens being armed does help lower crime in those areas. Criminals have to think twice is that fraile looking woman with the expensive purse packing? You don't like concealed weapons don't carry one. We could ban guns then the only people who would have them would be criminals seem stupid to me but somehow that is logical to people like you.
