are there any statistics backing up carry, concealed or open
They must exist, just don't know where. In how many instances were robbery or assault prevented, etc. I has having this discussion with someone who was throwing out numbers that there are way more murder, suicide, accidental shooting than helpfulness. I didn't have answers here. And the newspapers have something all the time about someone killing a family member (most recent is the case in upstate NY this past weekend). There is not much on , 'local citizen prevents.....'
Pls point me in the right direction so the next time I don't just look like a fool with my mouth open and nothing intelligent coming out when this issue comes up.
