GUNS IN AMERICA

Contrary to the popular belief that gun-control regulations somehow reduce crime, Whistleblower magazine’s groundbreaking “Guns in America” issue reveals that just the opposite is the case.
Subtitled, “Myth-busting research says firearms in more hands results in less crime,” the issue asks this question: Which vision for America – that of Second Amendment supporters (unfettered access to firearms for law-abiding citizens) or that of gun-control proponents (severely limited access to firearms, or an outright ban) – actually results in a safer and more civilized nation?
The latest research is compelling. In areas where the right to own firearms is the most restricted, crime flourishes; but where gun ownership and possession are least restricted, crime falls – often dramatically.
The statistical proof simply confirms what has been evident anecdotally for years. For instance, years ago the women of Orlando, Fla., were terrified of being raped, since 33 women had already been raped in just one 9-month period. After people began flocking to gun stores to protect themselves, the Orlando Sentinel newspaper got together with the police to offer a firearms safety course.
It was all very well publicized. Everybody knew that in Orlando there was a multitude of women who had handguns and knew how to use them. The result was that in the following 9-month period, there were only three rapes. In addition, crime in general declined. The fact is, Orlando, Fla., was the only U.S. city with a population of over 100,000 that had a reduction in crime that year.
Opponents of Florida’s right-to-carry legislation had claimed their state would become known as the “Gunshine State.” But, as U.S. Sen. Orin Hatch, R- Utah, later said: “The effect of that legislation on state crime rates has been astonishing. The predictions of the gun-control advocates were wrong, flat wrong.”
From cover to cover, the September 2001 edition of Whistleblower lays out the overwhelming evidence that turns conventional wisdom – the idea that restricting guns somehow reduces crime – on its head.
