    Not unknown or debated when you've been there several times, drawn down on them and watched the BGs wilt like a leaf on a hot tin roof, and scram, as I have !

    The look on their faces was priceless!

    Study in the 1990s proved that millions of people yearly ward off criminal attack without even firing a shot! Unknown my @$$ !

    oh no.
    I think my hear is going to fail me.

    MSNBC on a semi pro gun article?
    What?

    I guess they have lost so many viewers/readers that they have decided to pickup the pro gun people? Naw, that can't happen.

    Good article, thank you.

    Did you guys read the responses on the poll that was in the article? It's amazing to me how narrow sighted people are. Every single idiot who apposed CCW said "I don't want some red neck, short tempered wacko with a gun next to me". How ignorant can you be? How do they not get that it's a honest, hard working, law abiding citizen that may save their life some day when some reckless thug who gives two sh*ts about legal carry puts a gun to their head asking for money.

    I just don't get it. Do they think that outlawing CCW that criminals won't carry with the intent to hurt or kill. Then what? wait for the police to get there 10 minutes later when your brains are splattered on the sidewalk? It scares me how irrational people are.

    The funny thing about that study was that Klinton ordered the study be made to try and pass more gun ban – er, excuse me – gun control laws and it totally backfired when they found that firearms are used lawfully over two million times a year to protect life and limb predominantly without any shots even being fired. Didn’t work for his administration but I remember the NRA and other 2A groups jumping all over it. I thought that was funnier than H E double toothpicks. :D

    As I recall, Clinton had a gun ban group called NAAV tap a guy named Gary Kleck (a professor at Florida State as I recall but I could be wrong) to do the study. Again, it backfired and was not used by anyone but pro-2A groups.

    I will be applying for mine next month as well. I have seen to many crazy things in the last few years to not carry. That and the other business we share a building with has been robbed at gun point twice in the last year, the first time the fella got convicted of attempted murder.
