You will often read comments on social media that it is unreasonable, or paranoid, or silly to carry a concealed handgun on a routine, daily basis, because your need for that gun is “a one in a million chance”. Wrong. Here are some facts from the US Bureau of Justice Statistics, part of the Justice Department.
First, the BJS completed a study in 1987 that concluded that among US citizens who were 12 years old in 1987, 83% would be the victim or intended victim of a violent crime in their lifetime. That’s four out of every five people. ( Note that is lifetime, not per year.)
More recently, the annual BJS report for 2017 showed the following
numbers, for just that one year:
Total Violent Crimes- 5,612,670 (includes unarmed assaults)
Rapes, female victim- 393,980
Aggravated Assault- 993,170
Serious violent crime involving injury to the victim- 643,760
Stranger Violence (Victim and offender unknown to each other) 2,034,100
The 2019 numbers came out in October. Counting ONLY four major
crimes, Murder, Aggravated Assault, Robbery, and Rape, there were a total of over Two Million of them. That’s 5,517 of those four crimes PER DAY.
So, the odds are not “one in a million”, they are “one in a few dozen”. If we only consider Aggravated Assault and no other violent crimes, there were an average of 2,721 Aggravated Assaults per day in 2017. The FBI’s definition of Aggravated Assault is “an unlawful attack involving serious bodily injury to the victim, or the use of a deadly weapon or other means likely to cause death or serious injury”. In other words, that’s almost 3,000 times each day someone tries to kill someone else in this country. Taking
sensible precautions against something that common is not being paranoid, it’s being smart. ... See MoreSee Less
