But a Congressional Research Service report shows that as private gun ownership expanded from 192 million firearms in 1994 to 310 million firearms in 2009, crime fell sharply.
The same is true for concealed carry reciprocity.
On May 27, 2017, Breitbart News reported a Crime Prevention Research Center study showing that from January 1, 2005, through December 31, 2007, the yearly rate of misdemeanors and felonies by full-time police officers was .102 percent.
On the other hand, the yearly rate for Texas’s concealed carry permit holders in the year 2015 -– the year campus carry was signed into law in that state–was .0102 percent.
