While I am an advocate of the 2d amendment, the idea of a reduction in crime is absurd, since it is the high crime rate that makes even that specious causal argument possible. There are two unique things in the US, one of the highest gun ownership rates, and one of the highest crime rates. If ownership actually DID reduce crime, the two figures would be in inverse proportion. The argument for the 2d amendment is simple, it was created by the founders for the protection of individual liberty FROM the government.
