Another myth passes
Ed Stone notes in the Atlanta Examiner that this is the first anniversary of a Georgia law allowing CCW licensees to carry on mass transit systems. Some Atlanta mass transit system operators had begged for bulletproof shields to protect them from their homicidal yet CCW licensed passengers. "We don't want cameras. Cameras don't save people's lives. ... We want something that gives us a fighting chance."
Results of the first year: homicides on the Atlanta mass transit system fell from 2 to zero. Armed robberies from 94 to 71. Not much of a bloodbath.
