A new study finds concealed-carry laws lead to a boost in gun crime by between 29% and 32%, mostly by triggering a surge in gun theft.

Well, yes. Of course it does. This is precisely why we need concealed carry laws, though. People deserve the right to defend themselves from any crime that results from people being allowed to carry more guns. What's interesting here is the additional insight that gun theft is actually one of the more common crimes. This is very useful information, because what it shows is that no responsible American should ever carry only one gun. I mean, what happens if that's the gun that's stolen by some criminal? If you only have that gun, you have no recourse. But if you're carrying another one, you can draw and fire, and get your first gun back. So you're back to two guns, which as we've just demonstrated is much safer than only carrying one. In fact, on the basis of this study, I think the only real conclusion we can draw is that every American should consider it his or her patriotic duty to carry at least two guns, and possibly more (perhaps an ankle piece or something tucked into a bra) at all times.

But what if the criminal steals those two guns?  Shouldn't you have another hidden gun?  You need three guns, minimum; unless you're expecting to encounter multiple criminals during the day who may try to steal your guns. At that point you're probably going to need to have a concealed tactical assault team with you... with at least three guns each.

More guns equals more crimes and more death.

Fortunately, the NRA has proved beyond a shadow of doubt that less guns will not result in less crime and less death. In fact, it's well-known that  zero guns would still result result in millions of gun deaths each year by violent antifa thugs run amok.

Guns.

That's also why those "NRA 4 Life!" and "This house shoots back!" signs are dumb. You're just advertising that you have valuables inside. Robbers generally rob your house when you aren't home.

The NRA wants crime to go up because it's great marketing for selling more guns

There's nothing that's ever terrified gunists more than doctors counting things.

This is how you can tell the difference between "a reasonable person who disagrees with you" and an enemy who'll shiat on your things until it's made to stop -- that fearful, desperate clawing at any kind of accountability or oversight or even simple study.

According to some YouTube commercials, you can be sitting in your truck, minding your own biz and some hooded guy could menacingly walk up to you.  You can't p***y out and lock your doors.  You can't drive away.  You gotta go for Blasy McBlasty.

You could be unloading the groceries and suddenly behind you, a twig snaps!  In a flash, the gun comes out.

Chillin' in a bar and some dudes get in0to a ST:TOS/TNG argument?  Not your problem cause DS9 is your ST show.  But the 9mm phaser comes out Sisko style.

Republicans live in a very scary world.

It's so they can push the narrative that "good guys"** will have more opportunities to murder the heinous ANTIFA thugs burning down major cities!

See someone carrying?  Shout "ANTIFA THUG!!!! I FEEL THREATENED!!!  I'M STANDING MAH GROUND!!!" and murder them.  No jail time, and the cops might buy you a burger after their 10 minute investigation.

And yet you've just identified the problem: America only has 1.2 guns per person.  Seriously, not even 2 guns per person.  How in the hell are we going to be safe if we can't even get to that second gun, let alone that utopian third you're dreaming of.

Actually, it's genius.  Any robber coming to take their guns is going to need a front end loader, a 50' trailer and a couple of hours.  No way someone isn't going to notice that.

CSB
I know a Sgt on the local PD in the podunk town near our place in North Central Florida. A town of 4,500 people. Their number one crime issue is guns stolen out of cars/trucks. He tells me that they often get 3-5 reports a week. So one every other day in a town of 4,500 people, that get reported. He says that mostly local kids go around at night testing doors on parked vehicles in town and in peoples driveways. They then sell the stolen guns in private sales. There is pretty much NO violent crime in our area, murder almost unheard of and armed robbery is ridiculously rare, so the guns are most likely leaving our area for places like Jacksonville, Gainesville, Miami or headed else where etc.

Not only does that many guns not help, I just can't imagine wasting that much money on stuff like that.

I don't know what guns cost these days, but for simplicity I'm going to say that, with peripherals and ammo, the average cost of those was ~$1000. There are 75-100 guns in that picture, that's probably half their mortgage in firearms.
