    Every time a new State passed conceal carry or open Carry the left and the gun grabbers insisted there would be wild west shootings in the streets. Never happened and in fact crime went down in those States.

    Every time gun sales go up the left and the gun grabbers insist there will be wild west shootings in the streets. Hasn't happened yet and in fact crime is going down, GO FIGURE.

    It is well established fact that in those locations with the most restrictive gun laws crime is higher then in those locations with less laws. It is also established historical fact that in those States that have enacted concealed carry or open carry crime has gone down.

    Obama was elected. I think that had the biggest influence on the rise in gun sales.

    There is a direct correlation to the election of Barack Obama and the decline in the crime rate

    He has kept us safe

    Provide for us a list of the laws he sponsored or supported that have lead to a decrease in crime.
