    With crime rates and gang activity that no law has been able to fix, Panamas Public Safety Minister Rodolfo Aguilera says his country is ready to follow in the U.S.s footsteps and make it easierrather than harderfor citizens to carry guns on their persons for self-defense.

    Aguilera indicates that Panama has tried it the other way and found no evidence to support the lefts claims that gun control is the answer. In fact, Aguilar said, Everything seems to indicate that there is no direct correlation in the aphorism that says more guns mean more crime.

    According to the Orange County Register, Aguilera then cited the 20-year decline in the homicide rate in the U.S. as gun laws have simultaneously been relaxed.

    The first point of note in the U.S. is the fact that every state now has some form of concealed carry, which began sweeping across the country after Florida took the lead with shall issue permits in 1987. This was followed, not simply by the passage of concealed carry laws throughout the country over the next three decades, but by a shift from may issue to shall issue in states like Alabama, which have gone from being states where a sheriff may issue a permit if he sees a need to one in which he shall issue a permit unless a criminal or mental record dictates otherwise. In addition to this, a push is afoot in many states to do away with the issuance of carry permits altogether, adopting a system where the Second Amendment is viewed as a viable permit in and of itself.

    You see this system in states like Alaska, Arizona, Kansas, Maine, Montana, Vermont, and Wyoming. And efforts to adopt this format for concealed carry have been undertaken in earnest in New Hampshire and West Virginia.

    An exponential increase in private gun ownership has occurred during this time, and it has correlated with plummeting homicide figures. Breitbart News previously reported that Congressional Research Service figures show Americans went from having 192 million privately owned firearms in 1994 to 310 million privately owned firearms in 2009. At the same time, the murder rate of 6.6 Americans per 100,000 in 1993 fell to 3.6 per 100,000 in 2000 and finally to 3.2 per 100,000 by 2011.

    Panama is taking note.

    The fine people of Panama might want to look this statistical phrase of "correlation does not imply causation". Both the left and right seem oblivious to this at times.
