In concealed carry states, crime is down
In response to Mr. Cook’s letter on Jan. 30 [“Hidden guns may lead to ‘Wild West’”] in the Reader’s Voice, this is a rehash of what liberals have been spouting for years.
When Florida enacted concealed carry, the liberal media predicted the Old West scenario. It didn’t happen. What did happen was a dramatic decrease in violent crime. It was so successful that 41 states now have put concealed carry laws on the books.
Violent crime is now at a 48-year low. Eight other states may approve laws. That leaves Illinois as the only state without the right guaranteed by both the Illinois and U.S. constitutions.
