Kansans Carrying Guns Commit Few Crimes

And you can bet they have damned few committed against them

Few Kansans who hold a concealed-carry gun permit have been charged with a firearm-related crime, statistics show.

Of the 51,078 permits issued in Kansas since the law took effect in 2007, just 44 permit holders were charged with a crime committed while using a firearm, according to records from the Kansas attorney general's office.

The Wichita Eagle reported that works out to one charge for every 1,161 permit holders, or 0.09 percent.
