    Study: Murder rate drops as concealed carry rises

    A dramatic spike in the number of Americans with permits to carry concealed weapons coincides with an equally stark drop in violent crime, according to a new study, which Second Amendment advocates say makes the case that more guns can mean safer streets.

PHOENIX -

A traveling exhibit arrives in Phoenix on the latest stop of its bus tour. It's a visual reminder about the human toll of gun violence in America.

It's called "No More Names: National Drive to Reduce Gun Violence."

It features the names of people killed by gunfire.

The bus made a stop Wednesday at the Burton Barr Library. Safety advocates and shooting survivors are urging Congress to pass universal background checks on all gun sales.

A woman paralyzed in a shooting 9 years ago talked about how her life has been affected.

"To be able to stand eye to eye with my little boy, who now nine years later is a remarkable man. I would have liked to hike with him, I would like to be able to dance with him at his wedding some day in the future, I'd like to be able to chase my grandchildren yet to be born around the floor and then I think about my friend Otis who's not here today," said Jennifer Longden.

"His daughter Shannon lost her life in senseless random fire on a day not much different like today."

The tour started last month in Newtown, Connecticut and will travel to 25 cities over 100 days.
