My Response:Some time ago, I remember seeing a study that showed that cars with NRA or gun stickers were more likely to be robbed.Do you know about this study or where I can find it?
Yeah, I did a couple of google searches and it seems there is a problem, but whether it has anything to do with proudly announcingIn other words, at this point there is nothing more than anecdotal evidence there may be a problem with having your car broken into if you parade your "pro-gun" stance. I would also toss in that most "crime guns" are allegedly stolen per the above conversation with BATFE. Also, there was more proof that guns in the home were detrimental to family safety, which was why federal gun violence research funding was ended.
gun ownership is another matter.
There is this statement:
As with anything the gun lobby says, I wouldn't buy it. My guess is that there is a problem.
But, there is also a problem with "stolen" guns from what I was told when I asked ATF about that topic. The BATFE agent I worked with at USAO-DC said that most traffickers will say the guns were stolen when asked.
The bottom line is that until there is some real accurate information out there, the debate will never really reflect the reality for either side.
Personally,I do not believe a firearm is the best choice, or even a realistic option, for any form of defence.
