After having read an article "GROUPON DISTANCES ITSELF FROM GUN COMMUNITY: INDEFINITELY SUSPENDS ..." in THE BLAZE today, rest assured, I will not be using Groupon again. I will also be contacting all of my friends and family and letting them know that GROUPON Is kowtowing to this uber-liberal, communist leaning, unAmerican democrat nonsense. I will be facebooking and tweeting about this too to my many thousands of friends. I will then ask them to do the same.
Read: "More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun-Control Laws".
(snip) University of Chicago Press, 1998 - Law -
Does allowing people to own or carry guns deter violent crime? Or does it cause more citizens to harm each other? Wherever people happen to fall along the ideological spectrum, their answers are all too often founded upon mere impressionistic and anecdotal evidence. In this direct challenge to conventional wisdom, legal scholar John Lott presents the most rigorously comprehensive data analysis ever done on crime. In this timely and provocative work he comes to a startling conclusion: more guns mean less crime.
Lott's sources are broad and inclusive, and his evidence the most extensive yet assembled, taking full account of the FBI's massive yearly crime figures for all 3,054 U.S. counties over eighteen years, the largest national surveys on gun ownership, as well as state police documents on illegal gun use. His unexpected findings reveal that many of the most commonly held assumptions about gun control and its crime-fighting efficacy are simply wrong. Waiting periods, gun buybacks, and background checks yield virtually no benefits in crime reduction. Instead, Lott argues, "right to carry" laws and legally concealed handguns currently represent the most cost-effective methods available for reducing violent crime.
In what may be his most controversial conclusion, Lott finds that mass public shootings, such as the infamous examples of the Long Island Railroad by Colin Ferguson or the 1996 Empire State Building shooting, are dramatically reduced once law-abiding citizens in a state are allowed to carry concealed handguns.
It is people and businesses like you that will destroy America. I assure you, this is a decision you will regret. Way over half of America agrees with me and you will feel the drop in revenue, as you should. The Constitution has been the law of the land for over 200 years and it is only when the leftist try to destroy it, America starts to falter.
THIS WILL NOT STAND!
