    buckman 155,

    You're absolutely correct. A fellow named John Lott, now at Harvard (I think), conducted a very in-depth study of the effect of CCW on crime rates. He wrote a book titled "More Guns Less Crime", detailing his findings and addressing his critics. The book is very technical, if you try to understand all the statistical issues, but he presents the findings in a manner that us normal people can understand.

    The anti-gun group of course hates what he has done, and even attacks him personally. He writes a lot of opinion pieces that are published in newspapers.

    He has done a very convincing job, I think.
