Concealed Carry Is Way Up, Violent Crime Is Way Down

A study done by the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that concealed carry permits are up from 4.5 million in 2007 to 11.1 million today. That 146% increase has come as violent crimes dropped by 22%. So do more guns equal less crime?

Today's episode of the Freedom Report takes a look at the fundamental right to bear arms and asks the question: Do our rights depend on the outcomes of those rights? Meaning, even if more gun ownership caused more crime, would that be an excuse to restrict those rights? Or, should our rights be fixed on principle rather than the consequences of those rights?

All that and more on the Freedom Report podcast.
