DON"T BELIEVE FEAR ABOUT PEOPLE WITH GUNS!
All this talk about if you let people walk around with guns then they will just go crazy and feel like they can shoot people even in little arguments at the store is just plain wrong! if anything, the opposite is true. Give a gun to law abiding citizens who can pass a minimum shooting qualification and they will actually behave much better than the rest of the population.
The saw the following article posted on Push Junction
and it was well work me re-posting on my website in light of the current national discussion about what will happen if you allow people to arm themselves.
Texas Concealed Gun Carryers Responsible for Almost NO Crime

study discredits hysterical arguments of anti gun activists
A concealed handgun toting Texans in a safe and law abiding Texan, 1200 WOAI news reports.
Statistics compiled by Bexar County District Attorney Susan Reed reveal that Concealed Handgun License holding Texans are responsible for fewer than one quarter of one percent of the gun related crimes which have been prosecuted in Texas over the past 16 years.
The Legislature in 2005 approved the CHL program, allowing anybody who completed a DPS background check and undergoes a safety course to carry a concealed weapon in public places.
Since 1996, when the law took effect, there have been 852,271 convictions of Texans under the 125 gun related offenses prohibited under state law, everything from Class A felonies like murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated rape, to relatively minor offenses like carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.
Of those convictions, only 1,972 of them were of individuals who were licensed to carry a concealed handgun at the time of the offense, or roughly .19%.
The statistics also show that all of the arguments which were made by opponents of Concealed Carry, that 'every fender bender accident' would 'turn into Dodge City,' have also not been true, as there have been almost no reports of CHL holders pulling their guns or using their legally carried weapons to make a situation worse.
