Chicago crime rate drops, Illinois concealed carry applications surge, Robberies down 20 percent, Homicide rate at 56 year low, Guns protect weaker people from stronger people armed or unarmed

“Weaker people, whether at school, at home or elsewhere are best protected from stronger people, with ill intent, by guns and proper security measures.”…Citizen Wells

“Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA – ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.”…Heinrich Himmler

“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good”…George Washington

 

Guns protect weaker people from stronger people, armed or unarmed.

A point missed or ignored by the media and the left.

The police officer in Ferguson, MO was protected from further harm by a gun.

From the Washington Times August 24, 2014.
“Chicago crime rate drops as concealed carry applications surge

An 86-year-old Illinois man with a concealed carry permit fired his weapon at an armed robbery suspect fleeing police last month, stopping the man in his tracks and allowing the police to make an arrest.

Law enforcement authorities described the man as “a model citizen” who “helped others avoid being victims” at an AT&T store outside Chicago where he witnessed the holdup. The man, whose identity was withheld from the press, prevented others from entering the store during the theft.

Police said the robber harassed customers and pistol-whipped one.

Since Illinois started granting concealed carry permits this year, the number of robberies that have led to arrests in Chicago has declined 20 percent from last year, according to police department statistics. Reports of burglary and motor vehicle theft are down 20 percent and 26 percent, respectively. In the first quarter, the city’s homicide rate was at a 56-year low.

“It isn’t any coincidence crime rates started to go down when concealed carry was permitted. Just the idea that the criminals don’t know who’s armed and who isn’t has a deterrence effect,” said Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association. “The police department hasn’t changed a single tactic — they haven’t announced a shift in policy or of course — and yet you have these incredible numbers.”

As of July 29 the state had 83,183 applications for concealed carry and had issued 68,549 licenses. By the end of the year, Mr. Pearson estimates, 100,000 Illinois citizens will be packing. When Illinois began processing requests in January, gun training and shooting classes — which are required for the application — were filling up before the rifle association was able to schedule them, Mr. Pearson said.”

    “”More and more questions are being raised about the ability of the current US administration to participate in the development of realistic and pragmatic approaches to international problems, to adequately assess the situation in the various regions of the world,” the Russia Foreign Ministry noted.”

    A very famous gunfighter of the old west had the following words engraved upon the backstrap of his 1860 Colt revolver…..”Be not afraid of any man no matter what his size,for you only need to call on me and I will EQUALISE.” What confirms my belief in the truth of the statement is that he ultimately died of old age.

    =====================
    I watched some of the funeral but couldn’t bear to watch it all. The family is asking for peace today but one of the speakers said watch out tomorrow! I heard that one group is filing a lawsuit against the St Louis County Police, the Ferguson police and the Ferguson mayor. Al Sharpton is riling them up with his rhetoric. I hope that doesn’t mean the violence will continue. If hostility occurs as a result, Sharpton should be arrested for inciting a riot. But that would cause even more accusations of racism.

    I hope someone will write a story on the comparison between the reactions by the parents of Michael Brown and James Foley. Both families lost sons under horrific circumstances. One death, as some would say, a deadly assault against all black males, and the other death, certainly a deadly assault against EVERY American. One death, a possible instigation of racial war, the other death, a possible act of war. One family touting “No justice, no peace”. The other family advocating “No peace without forgiveness”.

    A Mass in his memory was held yesterday for Foley in his hometown. What a contrast! (Foley’s family and friends plan a more formal funeral on his birthday, Oct. 18)

  15. I do not mean to scare anyone….but if I lived in California, I would seriously be thinking about a long, extended vacation….

    The third quake could be the BIG one..

  16. Probably not the photo of Michael Brown the MSM will use on the front page of any article about him…….

    But after all…he is just an innocent jolly giant of a kid who likes Skittles, and fruit juice mixed with a little cough syrup….and he was going to college in the fall….

    Hummmm I wonder what his major field of study would have been?

  17. 9-12-14…FINALLY……WE WILL FIND OUT WHO JOHN GAULT IS…..

  18. If it were only so. One problem is that it appears the Chicago Police have also been working very hard to fudge their crime statistics to make the city look better. Don’t get me wrong. I believe it definitely could work, and may have had some effect, but there is also some serious evidence that Chicago under the recent Chief of Police McCarthy (believe that is his name) and Emmanuel have deliberately falsified some stats too.
