John Stossel deals with some dangerous gun (control) myths. A snippet from one of them:

What if it were legal in America for adults to carry concealed weapons? I put that question to gun-control advocate Rev. Al Sharpton. His eyes opened wide, and he said, “We’d be living in a state of terror!”

In fact, it was a trick question. Most states now have “right to carry” laws. And their people are not living in a state of terror. Not one of those states reported an upsurge in crime.

Why? Because guns are used more than twice as often defensively as criminally.

There are loads of myths in this area of policy, and Stossel takes on some of them quite well. And it was nice to know that in a year or so, according to federal law, I’ll be off the hook for being in the Second Amendment’s state militia.
