The Increase In Concealed Weapons
President Obama’s term in office was accompanied with an outcry by gun lovers that the President was going to severely limit their Second Amendment rights. These staunch Second Amendment supporters flooded gun stores in an attempt to buy as many guns and as much ammunition as possible before the Presidential crackdown on gun rights. However, any limitation on a person’s right to bear arms has not been limited; rather, in many instances gun rights have been expanded rather than limited.
For instance, the right to carry a concealed gun has gained momentum since the 1980s and has increased the number of licensed concealed gun holders from one million to around six million. With a greater number of concealed guns on the streets, supporters have argued that this has resulted in a decline of crime. However, those that oppose this movement point to the fact that no scientific studies have ever proved evidence that an increase in the number of licensed concealed gun owners has resulted in less crime. This continues to be a hotly contested debate and to learn more, see here.
