The Right to Carry means a safe and secure community

Found this on another gun site and found it interesting:

There is a new study from Carl Moody and John Lott responding to the shrill lying disinformation from Leftists. Every time we have passed improvements to freedom in our state, we've listened to hours of predicted catastrophe from Leftists on our legislative House and Senate floors. It's all balderdash. Guns save lives - why? Because evil people will take every advantage possible of their perceived victims.

After irrelevant and misleading criticism of prior work, the professors reviewed crime data from 2014 to 2022 and confirmed that right to carry laws and Constitutional Carry laws do not lead to increased murders where they are enacted.

The full paper is at:

I apologize if this is in the wrong section
"I believe that people have a right to decide their own destinies; people own themselves. I also believe that, in a democracy, government exists because (and only so long as) individual citizens give it a 'temporary license to exist'—in exchange for a promise that it will behave itself. In a democracy, you own the government—it doesn't own you."- Frank Zappa
