    The BG's know that if they get out of city limits their chances of getting shot go way up !
    +1, and also look at cities that don't have CCW, for example DC the crime is terrible. However, in reality it is somewhat hard to track this because news stations rarely report good stuff happending.

    I've already got the PDF. Thanks for the thought, though.

    Good advice, Lott's research has produced some excellent information that even the anti-gun crowd can't really call into question due to his unbiased methods.

    Also do a seach for some of Gary Kleck's articles, his stuff is good also. IIRC, he was an "anti" who actually set out to prove that guns contibute to crime, etc. However, after conducting his research his opinions did a complete 180.
