Hey guys, I'm working on a project at school and I am tasked with creating a power point presentation with the goal of expressing a policy that I would like changed and working at convince my class that I am right. I am doing it on why California should be a shall issue state, but I wan to include factual statistical information. Any one have a source for some good hard recent stats?

I am proposing that California should be a shall issue state. I was thinking of doing so by showing how the increase in CCW does not correlate to an increase in hand gun violence

You won't be able to sell that - it's an emotional issue, not a logical issue - but you want John Lott's "More Guns, Less Crime", 3rd edition, 2010.

See also "More Statistics, Less Persuasion" which you can download from http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=286205
