Hello I’m Don Dahler and this is 2020 In Touch. On Friday, we had a new entry in our series Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity. Of the 10 myths we covered, and you won’t be surprised at this one, the most talked about was gun control reduces crime. Here is John Stossel.
It’s about the weapons, the guns, where did the killer get them?
They are shocked at how easy it is to purchase a gun.
It is simply too easy to obtain a fire arm.
The belief that gun control prevents gun crime is why many were upset this spring when…
A bombshell court ruling could put handguns back in D.C. homes.
A court threw out Washington DC’s 30 year ban on guns, and that’s outrageous, said public officials.
[Mayor Adrian Fenty:]
More guns very simply lead to more violence.

I don’t know how anyone could be serious in saying that because gun violence went up when they banned handguns.
Tom Palmer’s one of the plaintiffs who sued D.C. over the right to have a gun. He’s correct about gun violence going up. Since Washington’s gun law passed, the murder rate actually increased, even while America’s murder rate dropped.
It’s because guns can also save lives, says Palmer, as one saved his years ago in California.
We were walking down the street and this group of young men took a really strong exception to that. They stood up, 19 or 20 young guys, followed us and they told us we’re going to kill you, they’ll never find the bodies and I turned around and showed them the business end of a pistol.
Just pulling out the gun was enough to stop them.
Yeah, it works. Merely having a weapon and being able to display it when I was threatened saved my life.
Now you may think that carrying a gun as Palmer did is illegal in most of America, but it’s not. Many people don’t realize that today in America, in about 40 states, it is legal to carry a concealed weapon on your person. And in those 40 states, there is no more violent crime or murder than in states where guns are restricted. The town of Kennesaw, Georgia went a step further and passed a law requiring every household to have a gun. Did they then experience a crime wave? No.
Well, after the city ordinance passed, there was actually a decrease in reported crime in the Kennesaw area, especially violent crime.
No, I don’t want politicians ordering me to have a gun and the law isn’t enforced here, but townspeople we talked to like the law.
I think it makes people think twice.
This is a very peaceful place to be.
We should have guns. I mean, that’s what free society do.
These maximum-security felons said they fear an armed victim much more than the police.
If you’re going to rob somebody, you don’t know, it makes it harder.
And they said gun laws don’t mattered to them; they don’t obey them.
I’m not worried about the government saying that I can’t carry a gun. I’m going to carry a gun anyway.
It’s impossible to know exactly how often guns stop criminals because who reports a crime that doesn’t happen. But people use guns in self-defense everyday.
Often just showing a gun is enough to prevent the crime.
When robbers broke into Joyce and Raymond Pappins’ home and attacked Raymond, he yelled:
Get the gun, get the gun.
Joyce did, and when the robbers saw it, they ran away.

Boy, when he saw the gun, he just started running and they weren’t just walking fast. They were running. They had boots on; you could hear them boots a clopping.
Joyce says having a gun changes the balance of power. And here’s a controversial idea. Some Virginia tech students say they wish students had been allowed to carry guns because one of them might have stopped the killer before he shot so many people. And that’s what happened five years ago at the Appalachian School of Law. Hearing shots, two students went to their cars, got their guns and helped restrain this shooter until policed arrested him.
One of the things that the gun does is it equalizes unequals. My mom told me when I was a young boy, because she was armed, she was never afraid.
So, gun control isn’t necessarily crime control. In fact, the National Academy of Science has reviewed hundreds of studies and could not document a single gun regulation that reduced violent crime or murder.

If someone gets into your house, which would you rather have? A handgun or a telephone? You can call the police, if you want and they’ll get there and they’ll take a picture of your dead body, but they can’t get there in time to save your life. The first line of defense is you.
