One more reason to love “Lois and Clark” actor Dean Cain:
Although urban police typically favor gun control, Craig said his views evolved after working in Los Angeles and Maine, where concealed weapons permits are more easily obtained.
“I changed my orientation real quick,” Craig said. “Maine is one of the safest places in America. Clearly, suspects knew that good Americans were armed.”
Thursday’s comments echo statements Craig has made in the past, including those he made last month, when he said responsible citizens who carry concealed pistol licenses “translates into crime reduction.”
Cain also shared news of a recent academic study on gun restrictions and gun violence.
An abstract of the Applied Economics Letters study concludes that “states with restrictions on the carrying of concealed weapons had higher gun-related murder rates” and “restrictive concealed weapons laws may cause an increase in gun-related murders at the state level.”
Cue the gun-grabbing ideologues covering their ears while singing, “La, la, la. La, la, la. I can’t hear you.”
