Response to Hoyt (Reply #30)

36. But we aren't seeing that.

 

First of all, we aren't seeing that. In spite of decades of ever-more-liberal concealed carry laws, and ever-increasing numbers of firearms in circulation, violent crime has continued to decline over the same period of time.

By your logic, we would expect violent crime to increase. It hasn't. Maybe there is something wrong with your logic.

Second of all, it sounds like what you are proposing, then, is that we should all just submit to criminals so that we can hope that they won't visit violence upon us. You are free to try that approach if you like, but don't expect or force others to join in.
