In a December 6 interview with Bill LuMaye on WPTF radio, GRNC president Paul Valone demonstrated that since North Carolina adopted concealed carry in 1995, violent crime has plummeted. He also noted that state and municipal parks have not enjoyed the same drop in violence because, until passage of HB 650, they were ostensibly "gun-free" zones. When contacted for the interview, Valone immediately offered to debate NC Policy Watch "progressive" director Chris Fitzsimon whose recent articles have attacked parks carry. According to LuMaye, Fitzsimon refused to debate. What's he afraid of?
