I don't imagine there are many stats to support or disprove that. But isn't that the time when "gun control" was conceived? Were sherriffs truly keeping people from carrying guns? And doesn't that fly in the face of the "armed society is a polite society" mantra?
Just seems to me that there are way too many irresponsible/stupid people in this world for me to start wishing they were all armed.
