In regards to “ Toughen firearms restrictions” (Letters, March 4), the writer should check her facts before she opines on more restriction on our constitutional rights. In actuality, violent crimes, including gun crimes, are down and continue to drop. These are statistics from the FBI. The number of gun owners in the U.S. is way up at the same time. There are about 8 million concealed-carry permit holders in the nation. Places like Chicago, New Jersey and others with the most restrictive gun laws are the most violent.
