2 guns up for Michigan

January 10, 2008

The main argument against permits to conceal a handgun on your person (down the front of your pants, safety off is the only way to go) is that it would create more violent crime.

Michigan, of all places, has seen violent crime drop since it instituted its own CCW permit system. Even with Detroit, 2007’s most violent city in its roster, Michigan has proved this isn’t necessarily the case. Here’s the pertinent info:

In Michigan and elsewhere (liberal permitting is the rule in about 40 states), those who seek CCW permits, get training and pay licensing fees tend to be “the kind of people who don’t break laws,” Lott said.

Nationally, the rate of CCW permits being revoked is very low, he said. State Police reports in Michigan indicate that 2,178 permits have been revoked or suspended since 2001, slightly more than 1% of those issued.

Another State Police report found that 175 Michigan permit holders were convicted of a crime, most of them nonviolent, requiring revocation or suspension of their permits between July 1, 2005, and June 30, 2006.

Not surprisingly, the people who are on public record as owning guns and receiving this permit aren’t going out and using their guns to kill and injure people.

Or are they? Shikha Hamilton, resident I-have-way-too-much-money-and-time-and-I-just-sit-around-and-worry-conspiracy-theorist (she’s from Grosse Point) isn’t so convinced.

Shikha Hamilton of Grosse Pointe, president of the Michigan chapter of the anti-gun group Million Moms March, said she believes overall gun violence (including suicide and accidental shootings) is up in Michigan since 2001. Many incidents involving CCW permit holders have not been widely reported, she said.

What? Murders aren’t reported? Armed robberies aren’t reported? There’s mention of a woman who fired at someone that cut her off on the freeway, but let’s be real here. It’s pretty hard to commit any sort of crime with a gun and have nobody make mention of it. They’re, uh, really loud. And they can kill people. I don’t think much of this goes unreported.

Dude 1: I saw a guy get shot in the parking lot at work today.
Dude 2: Holy shit! Did you call 911?
Dude 1: No, I helped the killer hide the body. He was a permit carrier man I don’t want them to revoke all of our permits because of this!

Not very likely if you ask me. Sounds like bullshit to keep them busy. If there’s no legitimate fear, and the public knows it, what is there to fear monger about? These people need real hobbies. To celebrate, here is a picture of guns.

somewhere in africa...anywhere really

Fuck yeah.

    We need guns to protect us from criminals. Criminals break laws. So if we have gun laws, what are they going to do? BREAK THEM. If we don’t have protection, then they will start becoming bolder.

    I don’t get why people make such a big deal abput guns, a weapon is a weapon. Guns just do the job alot quicker and with more noise. And for all you “Homies” get a life, really you think your cool and you talk big but the truth is you will either end up in jail or dead. And i would be willing to bet your “Crew” won’t show up at the funeral

    Wow, You all need lives.

    People carry guns LEGALLY because there are people in this world who will attack you regardless of who you are and where you’re from. If you’ve EVER looked at PRO GUN threads online, which you haven’t.. You would know PRO GUN LEGAL concealed carriers are VERY cautious about using their firearm or any other weapon for that matter. They take into account all the things that could happen if they used their weapon VS calling the police. YOU CAN ONLY discharge your firearm if a violent felony is accruing and you feel personally threatened, enough to where you NEED to use your firearm.

    If you look at the crime statistics for every state with heavy gun laws and look for crimes committed WITH guns, they are significantly higher than states that are free (By that I mean NOT the east coast, and Kalifornia..
    Criminals will obtain firearms regardless of the laws, law abiding citizens will not.

    I bet you fags would blame a cop for both USING his weapon and NOT using his weapon. Fucking Liberals.

    I bet you all are the kind of people who get lost hiking because you didn’t think ahead and get any sort of GPS.. You are the people we hear about in the news, YOU are the kind of people who accidentally discharge firearms because you don’t know what the FUCK you’re doing..
