This data does not support the conclusion above it. It only refers to the revocation rate due to firearm-related offenses — with no mention of any other crimes; no context for what that revocation would entail under existing NRA-sponsored laws; and no comparative statistical assessment of “the average American.”

Also it’s…kind of inherently impossible to compare the rate of “permits revoked due to firearm-related offenses” by concealed carriers and the “average American” because the “average American” isn’t going to have a concealed carry permit that could revoked in the first place.

tl;dr this is deceptive, manipulative nonsense disguised as overly-technical legalese that’s intended to confuse detractors, and uphold some fantasy of “informed” “fact-based” objectivity.

What a sham.
