Re: “The cult of gun-toting

Another "Emotion over Facts" article.

-Study of TX conceal carry permit holders found that CCW'ers committed violent crimes at a rate lower than law enforcement.
-CCW'ers have less firearm accidents than law enforcement.
-DOJ metastudy endorsed by Mr. Obama himself concluded that while the estimate for yearly defensive gun uses by civilians is probably less than the high estimate of 2.5 Mil, the study that estimated 800,000 was likely a LOW number contrastingly. Compare with <10,000/yr homicides involving firearms.

Seems we have a bigoted cult of gun control that enjoys shaming other lifestyles they wouldn't personally choose. Getting a gun and learning to use/store it safely is mind-bogglingly easy...so easy that 80 million+ people manage to do it year to year without incident. But it takes personal responsibility; something in the age of government dependency is scary to folks. If you don't feel like you can handle it, good on you. Leave the rest of us alone.
