Thread Name: BS: 'Right to carry' anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: 'Right to carry' anyone?
Vermont has some of the "loosest" gun laws of the US.
There's no such thing as a "concealed carry permit" because there's no restriction on concealed carry in the first place.
But I know very few people not in law enforcement who routinely go armed. There's no need.
News headline this morning: State police just announced a second murder. Yes. TWO murders thus far this year. In the whole State. And one of them was with a knife, not a gun. Even one is too many, of course, but...
Could there POSSIBLY be some other primary factor than the availability of guns, determining the violent crime rate?
