Cleburne Times-Review

As public colleges in Texas prepare to allow gun owners to bring weapons onto campus, a new study casts doubt over whether the new rules will deter crime.

Published in the Journal of Criminology, the study that included researchers at Texas A&M concluded that concealed handgun laws don’t affect crime rates.

Researchers examined laws and crime data from four states - Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Texas - from 1998 to 2010.

“If every Texan stopped carrying, I would expect no increase in crime,” said Charles D. Phillips, professor at the Texas A&M School of Public Health, in a email.

Oh, but Brian Birdwell SO WANTS THE OPPOSITE TO BE TRUE. THINK OF HIM, PLEASE!!!!!
