Shocker: Violent Crimes In Minneapolis Plummet After Concealed Carry Law Passed

Bismark, ND --

Minneapolis Star-Tribune has an interesting article about violent crime plummeting in the city:

Violent crimes, most notably, homicides, have been plummeting in Minneapolis during the past two years, according to statistics released today by the city’s police department.

Between January 1 and Monday, only three homicides had occurred in the city, compared to 11 during the same period in 2008 and 18 a year earlier.

It’s a far cry from 1995, when a record 97 homicides saddled the city with national infamy when a journalist dubbed it “Murderapolis.”

Drops in reported rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults also have been recorded during the two year period, but those declines have been less dramatic.

Overall, violent crime has dropped more than 25 percent since 2007 and nearly 18 percent in the past year alone.

In both 2007 and 2008, the city enjoyed double-digit percentage declines in violent crimes. ...

Total property crimes also have dropped, down more than 11 percent to date, compared to last year, and 23 percent since 2007.

Note that 2005 was the high water mark for murder and violent crime in the city. Now, public officials in the city have their (rather vague) explanations for what caused this:

“This is fantastic, the result of a community-wide effort to make this a safe place to call home,” said Mayor R.T. Rybak. “But we’ve still got a long way to go.”

Rybak attributed the continuing decline in violent crime to closer working relationships between the police department and neighborhood-level community organizations. “To keep it down, we have to have deeper connections between the police and the people they serve,” he said.

I’m not even sure what all that means, but I think there’s a better explanation for what’s going on here. The peak for murder and violence in Minneapolis was 2005. And what happened in 2005? Why, the Minnesota Personal Protection Act took effect.

The Personal Protection Act, which took effect May 25, 2005, authorizes Public Safety Commissioner Michael Campion to create new training guidelines for any organization or entity wishing to provide firearm training to individuals for the purpose of obtaining a permit to carry a handgun. ...

Minnesota State Statute 624.714 allows qualified individuals to obtain a permit to carry a pistol in the state. Permits are issued by all county sheriffs in Minnesota.

It would probably kill the liberals at the Star-Tribune to admit that violent crime and murder is going down even as the number of people bearing arms goes up, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the truth.

Most murders here are not criminal-on-innocent victim, but criminal-on-criminal.
While it's true that MPPA might have helped, what is a much bigger fact is that in the late 90's the old gang networks were decapitated through some sharp law enforcement.
Warfare ensued, the object to define new leaders, and new turf.
This reached a peak around 05, and is settling back.

Proportional to population, the city has a relatively low number of permit holders. I expect to see greater effects in outstate and suburbia, first.
