2011 Decrease In Crime, Increase In Gun Sales

In times of economic hardship, do crime rates go up? Not in 2011 according to the FBI. I believe part of the reason is an increase in law abiding citizens choosing to arm themselves. Gun sales have been increasing every year since Obama has been in office. Women buyers have been on the rise the past few years.
Bad guys are deterred when they realize their potential victims may very well be able to fight back. Guns in the hands of good, law-abiding people could certainly be an explanation for the decrease in crime rates.
