Americans are Taking Matters into Their Own Hands as Crime Rises, Study Shows

Share on social

Sadly, crime in America has increased in recent years. Police have been demonized and defunded in some cases by Democrats. There are many cities where people cannot count on the police to respond immediately to an emergency call. This has resulted in an increase in the number of people carrying handguns.

The American Journal of Public Health reported earlier in November that the number of Americans carrying loaded handguns every day has doubled in just four years, according to The Blaze. There were approximately 6 million Americans who packed guns every day in 2019 compared to 3 million in 2015.

The number of adults carrying handguns in the U.S. increased from 9 million in 2015 to 16 million last month.

“Between increases in the number of people who own handguns and the number of people who carry every day, there has been a striking increase in handgun carrying in the U.S.,” said lead study author Dr. Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, who is also a professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington.

There has also been a shift in gun ownership from hunting to personal protection, according to the study.

In 1994, 46% of gun owners used firearms for protection. By 2015, 65% of firearm owners wanted a gun for protection, and 73% by 2019.

As noted by The American Lookout, an armed society is a polite society.

This all comes as Democrats want to restrict and even ban guns. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution shall not be infringed. Our Founding Fathers put this amendment in place for a reason, and that was to protect our firearm rights. Americans have the right to bear arms, and this is a responsibility that we take seriously. Hands off our guns!
