Two New Tidbits You Can Tell Gun-Grabbers

The first one: People who hate America and the Second Amendment are fond of saying that more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens somehow leads to more crime. Even though there’s not a shred of proof behind this statement, the failing Fake News “media” like the NY Times, Washington Post and other rags endlessly parrot this lie.

Maybe they should visit some areas in Pennsylvania, like McKean County, along with other local regions that have consistently seen a rise in conceal permit ownership throughout the last decade. According to statistics, gun-related crimes in McKean County are among the lowest in the state as well as the nation.

According to statistics done by the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting System, in the year 2016 there was only one crime reported that involved a gun in all of McKean County. As of 2017 there have been none, notes an article in bradfordera.com.

This record of few gun-related crimes has remained consistent in McKean County, since the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency reported back in 2010 that there were less than 10 gun related incidents, none of them being homicide, the article adds.

In fact, according to a report done in 2017 by the Crime Prevention Research Center, Pennsylvania is one of three highest issuers of conceal carry permits with 1.28 million permits, second to Florida which has 1.75 million permits, but surprisingly beating out Texas which has 1.2 million permits.

Pennsylvania is also one of only nine states where 10 percent or more of adults have a concealed carry permit, the bradfordera.com report notes.

Three counties are among the highest adult populations with concealed handgun permits in the state: Potter County at about 50 percent, McKean County at about 35 percent and Cameron County at about 31 percent.

“Permit purchases have been consistent in McKean County for the last five years,” say McKean County Sheriff Dan Woods, according to the article.

Pennsylvania charges $20 for a five-year conceal carry permit, and has no training requirements to obtain a permit.

“It’s a way of life here, and it’s nothing of concern,” Woods said, according to the bradfordera.com posting “Some folks come in, renew their permits simply because it’s a conveniently nice enough day for it.”

Here’s the second thing you can tell gun grabbers: The Fake News media continues to claim that the only reason firearm ownership among law abiding citizens skyrocketed under the regime of Barack Hussein Obama [gun sales soared 60 percent under Obama’s eight-year stint in office compared to the number of firearms sold under President George W. Bush, notes www.mrctv.org/blog/firearms-sales-soared-60-during-obamas-presidency] was that all of us “Deplorables” were crazy, racist or both.

These Democrat cheerleader “reporters” also claimed that gun sales would plunge once President Trump took office, since, according to them, we don’t have Hussein Obama to kick around any more.

But here’s the funny thing: More Americans than ever have applied for and received permits to carry concealed pistols, and in one Pennsylvania county dubbed “God’s Country,” over half of all adults are licensed to carry, according to a new report, notes an article on washingtonexaminer.com.

Research from economist John Lott’s Crime Prevention Center shows that permit granting has continued to surge under President Trump, dispelling expectations that having a pro-gun chief executive in the White House would lead to a dramatic downturn in applications, notes the report

Lott said that 16.36 million Americans have permits, and there were an unprecedented 1.83 million approved last year. That means that 6.53 percent of all American adults have a carry permit.

And what about all those “racists?” In fact, women and minorities are also getting them at record numbers. Of states that broke out gender and race of permit holders, Lott’s latest annual report said that the number of permits granted to women jumped 93 percent in recent years and blacks are getting them at a rate 30 percent higher than whites, according to washingtonexaminer.com.

Lott adds that the actual number of concealed carry adults is much higher because there are 14 states that do not require a permit and many are big gun states such as Arizona, Wyoming, and Maine.

“The two things that stand out in this year’s report is the huge increase in permits for women and minorities as well as how extremely law-abiding the over 16.3 million permit holders continue to be,” Lott, the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, told washingtonexaminer.com.

Of all counties, Lott found that Potter County in north central Pennsylvania, which calls itself “God’s Country” due to the abundance of open space, wildlife, and fishable waterways, leads the way with 50.3 percent of adults having a permit.

Lott made the case that states with concealed carry rights have lower crime and that those with permits are extremely law abiding, having a lower conviction rate that for police officers.

According to washingtonexaminer.com, key highlights from the Lott report include these findings:

–6.53% of American adults have permits. Outside the restrictive states of California and New York, about 8% of the adult population has a permit.

–There are four counties in Pennsylvania that have between 30% and 50% of their adult populations with concealed handgun permits: Potter (50.3%), McKean (34.6%), Warren (34.6%), Cameron (31.3%), and Armstrong (30.1%).

–Florida, Pennsylvania, and Texas each have over 1.2 million residents who are active permit holders.

–In 2016, women made up 36% of permit holders in the 14 states that provide data by gender. Eight states had data from 2012 to 2016 and they saw a 326% faster increase in permits among women than among men.

–From 2012 to 2016, in the five states that provide data by race over that time period, the number of black people with permits increased 30% faster than the number of whites with permits. Asians appear to be the group that has experienced the largest increase in permitted concealed carry.

–Concealed handgun permit holders are extremely law-abiding. In Florida and Texas, permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at one-sixth of the rate at which police officers are convicted.
