How come the MSM isn’t all over this?

Since 2015, residents of the state of Maine have been allowed to carry a concealed firearm without any special permit, and now the results are in: crime has fallen to the point where the state is now rated the safest in the nation from the threat of crime. The Maine Examiner reports:

    Easy answer. This does not fit the narrative that guns are evil and must be banned. For your own good of course. Yellow Journalism 101: Any thing that contradicts the narrative/ party doctrine must be ignored. If it is ignored, it does not exist or never happened.

    For the same reason they never mention Maine is 95% white people. It’s not about the guns. It’s about the people.

      A friend lives in Maine. The downtowns of the large cities are now Somali-infested crime warrens surrounded by lily-white but far-Left SJW types who overlook the crimes the rapefugees they helped import commit. Everywhere else? Beautiful state.

    • FaCubeItches says:

      That’s why they’re importing Somalis.

    Maine is also the whitest in the nation, but it would be raaayciss for me to point that out.
    Our great cities of Lewiston, and Portland are doing everything possible to change that with their invite to the Congolese and Somali immigrant populations.

    Notice that the article says residents of the State of Maine, while the Maine law states “a person” meaning anyone.

    Is it coincidence that freedom to have weapons and the lack of minorities (read blacks) lead to a lack of crime?…..I think not….I’m certain the leftists can remedy THAT!….

    I looked at the entire list where Maine is the safest. What concerns me Draconian gun law Democrat run states like NY, NJ, Mass rank safer than many conservative open carry states like mine (North Carolina). I’m agreeing with a previous commenter, Professor hale. It’s the culture, not the legal access to firearms. But that’s not Politically Correct so it’s hidden or ignored.

  7. Ersatz Naugahyde says:

    ME, VT and NH.. Ranked 1, 2 and 3 respectively.. All have ‘Constitutional Carry’ (VT by default as they’ve never addressed the issue that I know of).

    Maine wasn’t exactly a hotbed of crime to begin with.

    Was that a trick question?
