More guns, less crime

Hate crimes argue need for gun ownership?

FBI statistics, cited by the National Rifle Association, show that “right-to-carry” states have 22 percent lower total violent crime rates, 30 percent lower murder rates, 46 percent lower robbery rates, and 12 percent lower aggravated assault rates, as compared to the rest of the country. I wonder what would be the effect on hate crimes.

Stats (I mean statistics) that don’t fly in major media. [HT: the indispensable Instapundit]
