The FBI just released the list of the 25 most dangerous cities in America. http://www.examiner.com/article/fbi-releases-top-25-most-dangerous-cities-america-list-for-2012 15 of them are in shall issue states and 10 are in strict may issue or no issue states. 8 of the 10 most violent cities are in shall issue states. I don't think ccw has effect on crime either way, but I still want a gun to protect myself. Posted from my stupid smart phone, please excuse any spelling mistakes.
