I like how they immediately tried to spin it into "more homicides per 100,000 than before" yet don't give an exact rate. They just say it was "higher" than the previous rate. So instead of 3.5 per 100,000, it might be 3.6 per 100,000. Then 70% of homicides are committed with a firearm yet they don't break that statistic down further into types of homicide and type of firearm used.

Junk journalism.

So are we trying to imply that the rate is lower due to more conceal permits ?

This article is useless with no proven facts.
