I'm not going to go on a quote spree here to show that some of you don't read these posts or just can't comprehend what is being said. I didn't say that more guns=less crime. Most criminals are NOT LEGAL GUN OWNERS. Therefore toss them out of your argument. What I said was in areas where there is a higher level of people carrying LEGALLY the crime rates are lower. I'm also not saying that everyone should be carrying a gun. I'm saying that a resonsible citizen should be allowed to carry if they see the need for it. The only people you really need to concern yourself with are the criminals. I have my own reasons for wanting to carry a sidearm and I don't think you'd be in any danger fishing the same waters with me.
