Re: “"Made in N.C.": Senators introduce a raft of gun legislation

William Campbell: You asked for it, you got it:

"An examination of the effects of concealed weapons laws and assault weapons bans on state-level murder rates." Mark Guis, Quinnipiac University, Applied Economics Letters, 2014
Vol. 21, No. 4, 265–267,…

Although Guis' literature review includes a few studies that postulate increasing violence with gun ownership, Florida State University researcher Gary Kleck's extensive review of such literature concludes:

"To summarize, the only prior research that supports the hypothesis that higher gun ownership rates cause higher crime rates is research that makes at least one, and usually all of, the three fundamental methodological errors identified here. Conversely, research that avoids or
minimizes these flaws consistently finds no support for the hypothesis." (In non-academic terms, that means the researchers supporting gun control often "cook the books." Phil Cook at Duke is a prime example.)

"The Impact of Gun Ownership Rates on Crime Rates: A Methodological
Review of the Evidence," Gary Kleck, Journal of Criminal Justice 43 (2015) 40–48,…

While you are quite right in saying that correlation does not imply causation, their is plenty of controlled, multi-variate research to support the hypothesis that gun ownership in general and concealed handguns in particular deter violent crime.

Re: “"Made in N.C.": Senators introduce a raft of gun legislation

@William Campbell

We've also had a huge surge in gay marriage in this state and around the country during the same period we've had a drop in crime. GAY MARRIAGE REDUCES VIOLENT CRIME!!!! SPREAD THE WORD!!!!! MARRY YOUR BEST SAME SEX FRIEND!!!!!

See? If you had taken any freshman college science course, you'd know that correlation does not imply causation. Please provide any credible peer-reviewed study that shows a direct link between concealed carry licenses and reduced crime.

Re: “"Made in N.C.": Senators introduce a raft of gun legislation

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! The FACTS from the FBI that a 122% surge increase in conceal carry permits nationwide has decreased US violent crime to it's lowest level since 1978, and the FACTS from the NCSBI that over 500,000 concealed permits in NC have reduced violent crime by 65% is like heaping hot coals upon liberal heads. Liberals simply cannot handle the truth! I do so love hearing their wailing and gnashing of teeth! It simply cannot be denied that MORE GUNS = LESS CRIME.

Re: “"Made in N.C.": Senators introduce a raft of gun legislation

Claiming that crime has been reduced by increased firearm access is an out and out lie, with absolutely no credible data to back it up.
According to the NCDOJ. Crime here has been in decline since 2006 with the greatest declines taking place between 2007 and 2012. Since the GOP takeover the drop in crime has been slowing by 1-2% each year with aggravated assault actually on the increase for the past 2 years.

Re: “Wake County voters not so keen on the General Assembly’s redistricting plan

Senator Barefoot's proposed legislation to align county commissioners voting with the school board is way over due. It is asinine to have supposedly representation by district but require county wide (at large) vote selection for all the candidates. If voting is about "expressing the will of the voters" as Mr. Stein states then people in my district have a right to feel cheated. The incumbent received a winning margin from votes within the district where he lives but the declared winner was elected by voters outside our district. There is no point in having districts, Raleigh with its' 17% of the population wants to control the whole county.

Re: “"We care about the human race": An interview with Black Pussy

Eric Mills, why should they change their name? Because you say so? Is that really the way we want to treat artists in this country? How about not buying their music or going to their shows?

No idea what ethnicity you are, but Eric is a male name. I don't think female PoC need you being offended on their behalf. Lets hear from them about how their lives are so deeply destroyed by a stupid name of a stoner rock band.

Re: “"Made in N.C.": Senators introduce a raft of gun legislation

Facts are not biased.... they are FACTS... the truth has no agenda. Gun ownership and carry is UP in NC, and overall viloent gun crime is WAY DOWN.... FACTS!
You are welcome to your emotions and opinions, it id after all a free country, but they really have no bearing on the issue. LAW should be the perview of ONLY FACTs! When you try to govern by opinon and feeling you wind up with strongmen and thungs who know how to manipulate those emotions and opinions.
I for one would rather be governed by HARD REASON. and hard reason clearly states over and over that MORE GUNS = LESS CRIME!

Re: “"Made in N.C.": Senators introduce a raft of gun legislation

Jane Porter:

Obviously the FACTS that the NC Concealed Carry program has reduced violent crime in NC by 65%, and that Concealed Carry permit holders have a far superior safety record than do the police, is causing you (and many other liberals) severe mental anguish. Good.

Good to see Jane Porter is not making any attempt at being unbiased.

Sad that young Indy readers have turned out to be the same kind of stupid as the PMRC. Wuss Generation, indeed. I spit on you and your selective outrage. You are the new enemy of art.

Re: “The Loop is a badlands. We should get rid of it.

While I do find the loop harrowing though I moved here eight years ago, more harrowing is the shrug Kevin Dick offers regarding gentrification and loss of small businesses downtown. Yes, the free market will price them out, but should that be inevitable? Manhattan has lost its charm for this same reason; must Durham too?

Re: “Bandleader, head chef and restaurateur Cheetie Kumar rarely sees sunlight, but at least she sees results

Sounds personal, Robbie. Top notch trollin' there, bud.
Cheetie is a wonderful person, great chef, has great style, and is a kick ass guitarist. I'm envious of her skills.
The band is one of the most inventive to come out of the area in the 27 years I've lived here.

Quite simply, she (and Paul, Steve and Ben) have made The Triangle a better place. Anyone who leaves the house is the beneficiary of people like them.
What are the rest of us doing to put the place on the map?
