4 Years after approving universal carry, Maine is safest state in the nation

Since 2015, residents of the state of Maine have been allowed to carry a concealed firearm without any special permit, and now the results are in: crime has fallen to the point where the state is now rated the safest in the nation from the threat of crime.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens decrease crime. That is fact that has been statistically demonstrated by John Lott’s pathbreaking book, More Guns, Less Crime, a rick-solid statistical analysis showing that when states pass “shall issue” concealed carry laws, crime goes down.
Yep, sure is good news. Disappointing how other media outlets refuse to post news that goes against their own political agenda. Nice seeing the left defeated again & proven wrong.


Maine Allows Permitless Firearm Carry, Now The Safest State In The Nation

Four years ago, Maine took a political gamble and enacted a law which would allow its residents to carry a firearm without the need for a special permit or conceal carry license.
At the time, the bill was described as radical by anti-gun groups, who vigorously fought against its passage.


Leftists Said Maine's Permitless Carry Law Would Cause Chaos. Now It's the Safest State in US

didn’t stop the left from freaking out
Crime has nothing to do with the tool that it is committed with but by the hearts of the people that commit it.
What does this mean? It means that crime is a people problem, not a gun problem. Despite tough laws, criminals can still obtain guns, and allowing citizens to protect themselves does not make our communities any more dangerous.

Not going to be a peep in the MSM about it either.

Guns should be going off and killing/maiming folks in Maine in large numbers by now, right?
