A couple small points-
Myth #5: Keeping a gun at home makes you safer.

They forget that most often the sentence would read makes you safer in the event of a violent encounter at home, as in a fighting chance. Most advocates are well aware of the larger stat. MJ just misrepresents the claim with some exceptions.

Same for CCW, same for women with guns. It’s not about the overall ststs, it’s about a fighting chance under attack.

A study was done in Texas, CCW vs overall population. CCW holders were dramatically less likely to commit a crime. That would include assault and battery.
