Taking a quick laptop, coffee and voicemail answering "break" from being on the road.
Went to MSNBC.com, and found the following link:
I'm thrilled to hear that crime keeps decreasing, even though the lousy economy and increasing urbanization in our great nation would make you think otherwise.
It bears mentioning that in general, gun control is loosening, and gun rights are increasing. Concealed carry is allowed (on paper at least) in 49 out of 50 States. Four states have Constitutional Carry. Municipal ordinances against carry in certain areas are being struck down like corn stalks during fall harvest, due to state pre-emption laws and citizens who take their government to court to make sure they are enforced.
The usual bromide that these changes will increase crime are pure nonsense and this is borne out again and again by the stats.
