Shocker: Focusing on Criminals Yields Public Safety Results

Opinion Shocker: Focusing on Criminals Yields Public Safety Results Fairfax, VA – -( Anti-gun organizations want you to believe that the next law, the next restriction on gun rights, the next burden for law-abiding gun owners will be the game-changer.  Whenever gun control fails – and it always does – the answer is that the effort didn’t go far enough. Researchers grasp for an excuse when they find their preferred gun control laws have no effect on crime.

The National Rifle Association of America reported $98 million in contributions in 2017, down from nearly $125 million in 2016, according to The...
