Armed Law-Abiding Citizens are the Best Crime Deterrent

By David F. Nolan

Candidate for United States Representative; District 47

This information is provided by the candidate
Your right to own and use firearms for self-defense is under heavy attack. So-called gun-control laws simply disarm peaceful, law-abiding citizens while criminals laugh at these laws, knowing that their victims have been disarmed. Study after study has shown that gun-control laws do NOT prevent crime. States and cities with the toughest anti-gun laws have higher crime rates than areas where people are free to own and carry firearms, including handguns.
For a complete, thoroughly documented study on this subject, see "More Guns, Less Crime" by John Lott, available at most major bookstores, or online at (Laissez Faire Books, 1-800-326-0996)
