VPC Proving a Negative

The Violence Policy Center has released a ground breaking study that proves that there are no deaths by licensed Concealed Carry holders where there is no licensed concealed carry.

Another Joyce Foundation puppet group agrees:
“You really don’t hear about people using weapons on the streets to protect themselves from violent incidents."
Well, not in Illinois or Wisconsin you don't. It's different in the other 48 states.

Nevermind that Chicago the city that has a ban on handguns (unless you're a connected official), ban on 'assault weapons and full registration, has 5x the murder rate of the rest of the state.

I'm so glad that the Joyce Foundation continues to dump money into these groups. It keeps them from spending it with those that might actually have some effect.

I saw this story earlier today at work and thought I should email it to you.

Then I thought, what's the point, it's probably already made the rounds by the time I stumbled across it.

I am smart.
