The Left’s Worst Fear On Guns Has Been Realized: The NRA Was Right

The number of people slaughtered in “gun free zones” at home and aboard shows conclusively that gun control is a failed idea which must be abandoned.

525% Increase in San Bernardino Concealed Carry Apps Shows Importance of Open Carry

Hey Orange County, can we do better and get a tenfold increase in apps WITHOUT a major terror attack? No, we can’t, and the reason is concealed carry itself.

Only open carry educates your neighbors on carry. Only open carry creates accountability for carry. As I’ve often said: “Open carry is ultrasound for the Second Amendment.”

San Bernardino is one of the easier counties in which to get a permit. Lots of people have permits. I wish more of them were accountable to actually carry under those permits.

The 525% spike in concealed carry apps in San Bernardino and similar increases in Orange County demonstrate the importance of open carry.

“That’s a big spike.”

Of Arms and the Law: Interesting trends in concealed carry laws.

From an article in the Idaho Statesman (which cites Clayton Cramer and John Lott).

Between 1986 and the present days:

States prohibiting concealed carry, with no licenses to do so available, shrank from 16 to 0.
States allowing permits on a discretionary “may issue” basis shrank from 25 to 9.
States allowing permits on a “shall issue” basis rose from 8 to 36.
States allowing concealed carry with no permit rose from 1 to 5.

All this over a period when both total homicides and gun homicides have fallen by about half.
