Where have gun bans not caused an increase in murders?
What if the mainstream media is wrong or missing the point? What is more guns means less crime?

Telling people to behave passively is awful advice.
Guns make it easier for bad things to happen, but they also make it easier for people to protect themselves.
A person should be allowed to have a concealed pistol on his or her person.
