Florida Governor Credits Reduced Crime There To Right To Carry Laws

Click the title bar for the entire piece.

Jeb Bush has come out and said, point blank, that legal guns stop the bad guys.

"This report shows that staying tough on crime works," said Bush. "Law abiding citizens that have guns for protection actually probably are part of the reason we have a lower crime rate."

A law passed last year in Florida that allows a person to defend himself with deadly force (called the "shoot your neighbor law" by gun control nuts) is given the main credit:

"You send a real powerful signal when you know the citizen has a good potential of being armed and doesn't have to back off anymore," said John Birch, president of the Illinois-based Concealed Carry, Inc.

Good news for us gun toting NRA life members. HOO RAH!!

I'll be back
