Some comments about guns

The Crime Prevention Research Center has released results of a survey of economists and criminologists that finds “guns are used more for self-defense than crime; gun-free zones fail to deter criminals, rather, they attract them; guns in the house don’t increase the risk of suicide; those who hold concealed handgun permits are more law-abiding than the average American; and permitted concealed handguns lower the murder rate.”
