That is, when you put more guns into the hands of law-abiding citizens, crime goes down.
Note that gun control takes guns out of the hands of the law-abiding; the criminals keep their guns and so, proportionately, gun control inherently gives more power to criminals.
See Gun Facts for well documented and annotated proof of this, and the debunking of many other myths regarding guns and gun control.

- I'm a 57 year old geek. I voted Democratic for 20 years, because I disliked the Republicans more. But now, nobody really speaks for me. I'm for Guns, for more correct government regulation of the financial world, against illegal immigration and amnesty. (in 2008 I ended up voting Republican - too many questions about Obama, and voting against anybody who voted for TARP 1.) In 2010 I voted a stright republican ticket because the Democrats have completely lost their minds.
