Journalist debunks claims that permit-holders are a dangerous group. Cam Edwards speaks with John Frazier, NRA-ILA director of research and information, about "Gun-control advocates play fast and loose" by A. Barton Hinkle. In this article, Hinkle explains that statistics from the Violence Policy Center and anti-gun groups claiming that licensed concealed-carry gun owners are major contributors to violent crime are misleading at best. Less than 1% of homicides are committed by permit-holders, making them much safer, as Hinkle points out, than airbags.
