Crime is down – again

From the FBI:

During 2009, violent crime declined for the third year in a row, with an estimated 5.3 percent drop from 2008 figures. Property crime continued to fall as well—for a seventh straight year—with an estimated decrease of 4.6 percent.

Now why do you suppose that happened? Normally, crime rates rise during hard economic times. Well, more states are legislating the Castle doctrine. Not to mention more states allowing concealed carry (follow this link to see the timeline change – you will be surprised). Seldom do police officers stop a violent crime unless they are off duty and carrying a concealed weapon. At that point in time, before they draw their weapon, they look just like everyone else. Your honor, I rest my case.
