15 years ago, how many States had legal concealed carry? The study doesnt differentiate between those who illegally concealed carry and those who do so legally. Those who engage in criminal behavior are more likely to drink? Wow, who knew?Excellent points.
Also, aren't there boatloads of studies that show that where there is legal concealed carry there are WAY FEWER carjackings?
15 years ago Ohio (one of the states in the study) DID NOT have concealed carry — so anyone (besides law enforcement) who transported a loaded gun in an automobile, for example, was doing so illegally. This only shows that people who break one law (e.g., driving while intoxicated) are more likely to break another, and has nothing to do with legal concealed carry.
