Quartz is a “news” website owned by Atlantic publishing, and so far as I can see just another Sociaalist disinformation site. As such, it is no real surprise they have struck one of the first blows against our latest effots to bring murder and other violent crime rates down to 1950’s levels:
Quartz predicts disaster if the Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity Act is signed by President Donald J. Trump.
The “blood in the streets” meme has been pulled out of the gun banners hat thousands of times in the last half century, predicting doom if even the most trivial relaxation of existing law were permitted. Before that, the Germans used the “blood will flow in the streets” meme to justify gun confiscation in Europe from Sudeteenland to surrender. And then there were the Armenians before that.
To date, no blood has been reported in the streets other than that caused by restrictive gun laws.
Instead, the violent crime and murder rates invariably decline in crime rates when restrictive laws are are relaxed. In fact, the results of every restrictive American gun law, and in red the results of Bloomberg’s gun ban lobbying since 2013, can be seen in the chart, above.
History strongly suggests that passage of reciprocal concealed carry permits will sharply reduce crime, and what blood flows in the streets will be made even less.
And our desire to llive a tranquil life free of criminal predation should iimpel each of us to make that call to our Representatives to pass reciprocal concealed carry.
