NUTS are NUTS

Yep, no doubt about it. Nuts are NUTS! Adam Lanza was crazy. (I know, it’s not a scientific analysis.) His family knew it, his friends knew it. Regardless of any other factors no sane person walks into a building and kills 27 people, most of whom I doubt he even knew. I’m going to write some facts, many of which I’m sure you know but maybe it can help me understand what reason there can be for disarming me and other legal gun owners.

First of all it has been borne out that EVERY SINGLE city in the US that is in a state that issues concealed weapons permits has lower gun crime rates than EVERY SINGLE city in the country that bans guns. That should be enough for any thinking person. But Noooooo! Some politicians and some liberals (many in the MMM) think that a problem like this can be solved by banning guns. Another interesting fact that almost every place where killings of 3 or more people by gun have occurred in places where guns are banned. Smart killers! One example I’ve heard cited is the Colorado theater killings. There were seven theaters showing the Batman movie that supposedly inspired this particular nut bag near his apartment. Did he choose the biggest one? No. Did he choose the closest one? No. The one he chose was the only one that has signs specifically forbidding guns inside. Smart shooter. This particular shooter didn’t stop till the cops came then he fled and was arrested behind the theater.

Some stats:
Cities with the highest gun crime rate: New York, Chicago. Strictest gun laws in the country!
City with the lowest gun crime rate: Kennesaw, GA. Every household is required to own at least 1 gun.
Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year, or 6,849 per day.
* Gary Kleck, Criminologist, Florida State Univ.
Often the gun is never fired and no blood (including the criminals) is shed.
Every day, 550 rapes, 1,100 murders, and 5,200 other violent crimes per day are prevented just by showing a handgun. In less than 0.9% of the time is the gun ever actually ever fired.
* Gary Kleck, Criminologist, Florida State Univ.
Every year, people in the United States use a gun to defend themselves against criminals an estimated 2,500,000 times- more than 6,500 people a day, or once every 13 seconds.
* Fall 1995, Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology
This means that, each year, firearms are used 65 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives.
Of the 250,000,000 annual self-defense cases using guns, more than 7.7% are by women defending themselves against sexual abuse.
* U.S. Dept. of Justice, Law Enforcement Assistance Administration,

MYTH: Concealed Carry Laws Increase Crime
FACT: When citizens are allowed to carry concealed weapons:
* Murder rates drop 8%
* Rape rates fall 5%
* Aggravated assaults drop 7%
More to the point, crime is significantly higher in states without right-to-carry laws.

TYPE OF CRIME HOW MUCH HIGHER IN RESTRICTIVE STATES (states without Concealed carry laws)
Violent Crime ……………………81% higher
Murder ………………………….. 86% higher
Rape …………………………… 25% higher
Assault…………………………… 82% higher
Robbery………………………….. 105% higher
Auto Theft……………………….. 60% higher
* John Lott, David Mustard: This study involved county level crime statistics from all 3,054 counties in the U.S. from 1977 through 1992. During this time, ten states adopted right-to-carry laws. It is estimated that if all states had adopted right-to-carry laws, in 1992 the U.S. would have avoided 1,400 murders, 4,200 rapes, 12,000 robberies, 60,000 aggravated assaults- and would have saved over $5,000,000,000 in victim expenses.

Please read John Lott’s book, More Guns, Less Crime. It is well researched and has the facts to back up the title!
Anyway, If Adam Lanza was determined to kill those he killed; he would have done so even if he couldn’t have found a gun. Remember the largest massacre of school children was the Bath school in Bath Township, MI where Andrew Kehow used explosives. He killed 38 children, 6 adults and injured 58.
You can go to John Lotts web page where there many more statistics and facts about gun ownership.
