A recent op-ed from The Columbus Dispatch titled "Concealed-Carry Laws Do Not Reduce Crime" may sound, from the title, like an accurate reflection of the relationship between concealed-carry laws and lower crime rates. However, as Howard Nemerov of Pajamas Media points out in his rebuttal, the article actually argues that the only way to bring crime down is to do away with private gun ownership. The op-ed references a 2003 study that was conducted in response to Author John Lott's More Guns, Less Crime, but Nemerov explains that the op-ed's citation is misleading. Originally aired 8/1/2011.
