They preach that “gun nuts” who carry guns everywhere are just “looking for trouble” and itching to kill someone.
Well, that’s just not right.
|General Public Police Gun Permit Holders|
According to the statistics, concealed gun permit holders are actually less likely than even the police to commit a murder.
According to the Violence Policy Center, Florida has the highest murder rate among concealed gun permit holders, and those numbers put the murder rate at somewhere around .58/100,000. Counting domestic homicides only, police officers committed 1.85/100,000 over the same time period.
Nationally, the murder rate in the United States sits right around 4.5/100,000. Therefore, you’re over three times less likely to be killed in a room filled with concealed gun permit holders than police officers.
