Percentage of Adults with Carry Permits Up 190 Percent, Violent Crime Down 18 Percent.

A study from the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) shows during the time period 2007 to 2015, the percentage of adults with carry permits rose 190% and violent crime fell by 18%.

The cut-off year is 2015 because it is “the last full year that crime data is available.” ”

According to CPRC, from 2007 to 2015 the “murder rates fell from 5.6 [per 100,000] to 4.9 per 100,000. This represents a 12.5% drop.” At the same time, “overall violent crime fell by 18 percent.” And again, these drops are coinciding with a 190% increase in “the percentage of adults with permits.”

    It has been my understanding that dead criminals are less likely to become repeat offenders.
