    awsome. I wish we could get good press here about conceled carry. I think i am going to do my pursuasive speech on the ineffectivness of gun control laws. Especially here in CA, it should make a good speech.

    good to see that article.

    I'm gonna have to look into some of Gary Kleck's papers since he is here at FSU it shouldn't be too hard to get ahold of them.

    I made a 15 page argumentative article in HS a few years back on why gun control is a bad thing and how having more guns in the hands of honest law abiding citizens lowers crime rates.
    Used alot of John Lott quotes, that guy is the man
    Teacher read a bit from a few students reports including mine
    Got alot of :ugh: stares from idiot classmates

    THE best reference you could make is pretty much anything that ever came out of John R Lott's mouth or pen

    Thats like citing the Violence Prevention Center. I know you love what the man is saying but I sure wouldn't use him academically http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Lott#Criticism

    "What should be done then? Repealing such legislation entirely is not politically viable. These kinds of laws are by definition 'feel good' initiatives that resonate with a good portion of the electorate. Honoring concealed handgun permits everywhere would be a good compromise in the interests of public safety and each individual's right to self-defense."

    AWESOME passage.
