FBI: Handgun Murders Dropped when These States Abolished Con

Post by WVRiflemannOH » Tue Jun 13, 2017 10:40 am

FBI crime report figures show that Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming–three states that abolished their concealed requirement years ago–have since witnessed a decreased in handgun murders.
This runs completely counter to the left’s doom and gloom predictions whereby they claim doing away with a government-issued carry permit will mean more bad guys carrying guns, more shootings and violence, etc.

FBI figures published by the NRA show that Alaska’s handgun murder rate “declined after the state enacted permitless carry in 2003.” Moreover, in the years since Alaska’s permit requirement was abolished “handgun murders have declined as a percentage of the total number of murders.”

A drop in handgun murders also took place in Arizona after that state abolished its concealed carry permit requirement in 2010. And in Wyoming–which abolished its permit requirement in 2011–handgun murders have declined as well.

As you read this, Ohio’s Constitutional Carry bill is in the House Federalism Committee.

With summer break rapidly approaching, I hope you’ll take a moment right now to contact the members of the Committee with this simple message. . .

. . . pass Constitutional Carry (H.B. 201) out of Committee and send it to the House Floor for a full vote!

Again, your message is simple: Please pass H.B. 201 before summer break!

In fact, if clicking on the email links above doesn’t work, feel free to copy and paste this pre-written language below into your own email.

Dear Member of the House Federalism Committee,

With more states every week passing Constitutional Carry, and most recently with Michigan passing it through their House chamber, the time is NOW for Ohio to jump on board.

Summer break is fast approaching, so please work quickly to schedule a vote, vote YES, and PASS H.B. 201 out of the Federalism Committee and send it to the House for a full floor vote!

I carry a firearm because a cop is too heavy and takes too many breaks.
