Florida Sheriff: 911 Not Sufficient, Must Have Concealed Firearm Holders on Campus

by AWR Hawkins Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd says schools must be allowed to adopt a system where concealed firearms holders are on campus and can “run to the threat.” He stressed that 911 is not sufficient because the attacker is already on campus, making his presence known via violence by the time 911 is called. Judd told Fox News, “The average shooter is finished with his evil deed in two to five minutes… in Broward County it was three minutes. The average police response is plus five minutes. When 911 is called the shooter is on the...

Minnesota: More Guns, Less Violent Crime

by AWR Hawkins Minnesota is coming off a year of record-breaking background checks for gun sales coupled with statistics that show record low violent crime.

NYPD Commissioner: ‘Insanity’ to Allow National Concealed Carry for Law-Abiding Citizens

by AWR Hawkins New York Police Department commissioner James O’Neill says it is “insanity” to allow national concealed carry reciprocity for law-abiding citizens. He suggested more guns will only lead to more violence, although a 2012 Congressional Research Service study showed that a massive increase in private gun ownership–from 192 million firearms in 1994 to 310 million firearms in 2009–correlated with sharp drops in crime. Moreover, the Crime Prevention Research Center (CRPC) has shown that concealed carry permit holders are among the most law-abiding of law-abiding citizens. To highlight how just how law-abiding concealed carriers are CPRC juxtaposed crimes by police...
