The Detroit Free Press actually has a decent, unbiased piece on the effects of Michigan’s “Shall Issue” CCW law, ten-years-on. Article is here.
While there are plenty of quotes from the Brady Bunch, most of them are rather laughable, including the old chestnut of “Blood in the streets.”
The story also takes the VPC to task for the questionable statistics on killings by permit holders:
Several other “victims” in the VPC report appear to have been criminals themselves, shot attempting to rob legally armed citizens. But with 276,000 concealed pistol license holders, even the unscrubbed VPC numbers hardly establish evidence of a crime wave.
Read the whole thing as it is unusual for the Detroit Free Press to present a balance of arguments; they’re usually rather anti-gun.
