TRUE! Paul Hsieh: Herd Immunity Applies to Guns as Well as Vaccinations.

From the experience in Illinois and around the country, a relatively small number of armed people can similarly reduce the risk of crime — even for those who aren’t armed.

So if you don’t own a gun but you are enjoying safer nights out on the town or sleeping more easily in your bed at night, give a little thanks to your neighbors who are gun owners. You’re the beneficiary of gun “herd immunity.”

The science is settled. You don’t want to be anti-science, do you?
