Cam Edwards speaks with Frank Borelli, former police officer and editor-in-chief of Officer.com, about the FBI preliminary crime numbers for the first half of 2009. This report shows a 4.4% drop in violent crime and a 10% drop in murder and manslaughter crimes specifically. Simultaneously, though no official correlation has been drawn, gun sales and concealed carry permit applications skyrocketed across the country. Borelli says he thinks there is a "common sense" relationship to these numbers: the more good guys have guns, the less likely bad guys are to attack them...because even they are generally not that stupid.
