Another way of making the previous point of questionable causation is to realize that in controlled experiments you only allow one factor to vary. There just is no way to control or to statistically eliminate other variables, especially economic ones, and say what the effect of CCW is on crime.

On the flip side, there is nothing in the statistics to give any credence at all to the dire predictions of gun control advocates that violent crime would soar if civilian access to firearms increased.
