Has anyone here seen a study of states violent crime rates as compared to carry laws?. I think it would be an interesteing read to see how much lower crime rates are in states like OR, CO or IN where CCW permits have few restrictions, as compared to states like CA or NY, where it's highly restricted. What about WI or IL where no CCW is allowed?

Thank you, MP. That was an interesting read. I think I'll get Lott's book after I finish reading Armed America.

The Bias Against Guns is even better (same author). He goes into excruciating detail on media bias in reporting gun events, even going so far as to interview the witnesses (nope, I did not tell the reporter THAT) and then going back to the reporters and editors that wrote the stories for their explanations. Neat stuff.

I'll keep that in mind too. I just got Armed America this afternoon.
Let us know what you think of it. Since I have a copied of The Arming of America (Bellesiles' fraud) on my bookshelf, I had to get this book.
