This article suggests that there has been no impact either way from Missouri’s concealed carry law:
â€œWhen they were debating this, one side was saying it was going to reduce crime and another was saying it was going to cause gunfights in the streets,â€ Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. â€œI really havenâ€™t seen either. Itâ€™s really a nonissue right now. Youâ€™re not having fights in the streets, but itâ€™s not saving the world either.â€
Seems to be the story everywhere this has happened.Â I’m happy to see they close out the article with a great statement on why regulating concealed weapons at all is just about completely pointless:
In St. Charles County, sheriffâ€™s Lt. Craig McGuire said that while there have been no reports of such infractions there, by its nature a concealed weapon would not be obvious anyway.
Exactly.Â Which is why criminals don’t really think much of ignoring these laws.
One thought on “Missouri Carry: “really a nonissue””
Isn’t it hilarious that this was such a big issue when it was first discussed and how it would deter crime? After all that nonsense its doesnt even matter in regards to the stats.
Nice find Sebastian!
