    If we are allowed to carry it may make a difference, if we are not allowed it CAN'T make a difference.

    Now? Not much. My county has less than 1% CCW permits. Out of that maybe half carry regularly. Faced with the situation, from what I gather from the board postings, less than half would engage the perp. I mean no disrespect to those who would not, I really don't want to give up my middle class existence to the next of kin of a perp either.

    Until gun laws become sane, and tort reform happens, the perps have little to fear - especially ones with a death wish.

    Now, divide that number by about 8, and you'll have the ratio during the average shift.....just remember that they'll be spread out all over the jurisdiction. Also remember that the number you come up with will include administrative and investigative types....not exactly "front-line troops".

    Permit me to use some intuitive reasoning.

    Out of the general population, what percent spends money and frequents the mall? Maybe 30% excluding the very young, old, and poor. Out of those mall people will come the CC'ers who will likely half be carrying. the odds that a CC would be close to the problem and carrying will be much higher that we have been imagining.

    But most importantly, if the main stream media would make an hero of the CC'er that prevents a tragedy, instead of the perpetrator, future perpetrators wouldn't have that incentive of becoming a folk legend. Suicide by CC Citizen wouldn't have that sensational, glamorous aura that the media feeds on.

    I think removing the gun ban signs from safe "criminal empowerment" zones, will have a huge, beneficial effect on these crazy crimes that the media makes so much cash from.
