One thing that we gun owners constantly point out to the public is that crime decreases when more people are armed. We tell how in Britain and Australia there were massive increases in crime after the latest gun bans. However, when this is reported to the gun grabbers they are totally unimpressed. Why is this? Well, here is a possible answer. In America today, more than 2 million people are incarcerated. Plus, untold numbers are out on parole. Many criminals have not been apprehended. The plain facts are that crime is BIG BUSINESS for those whose careers are fighting crime. There must be between 1 and 2 million people (maybe more) such as city, county, state and federal police officers, investigaters, judges, attorneys, court house employees, prison guards and possibly many others who absolutely depend on criminal activities for their daily bread. If crime was to immediately cease, what would these people do for a living? I think that many people have a vested interest in crime and that is why we will never get anywhere telling them that armed citizens are a deterrent to criminal activity. If I am wrong, please convince me! Thank you, my friends.
