    Yep, bad news to be sure. Just as the school shooting just prior to the November election in Washington was bad news for those opposed to I-594. So many people choose to vote based on feelings, and feelings are scary things - they can be very intense, but usually only for a short time, so the anti-gunners have to capitalize on events like these very quickly. The timing of the school shooting in Washington was like a gift delivered on Christmas - it set the emotions of anti-gun folks and even those on the fence, on edge, and their best response was to quell their own need to "do something" by casting a vote, a vote many believed (wrongly), will save lives. Make no mistake, the anti-gun crowd has the playbook down. They will exploit every gun related tragedy they can to make their point, and with the media in the back of their deep, well-lined pockets, they are a true force to be reckoned with.

    Well,I won't go to the Examiner for reasons stated other places but I went to Yahoo news and there was a little more action than just a double homicide.

    FireFox and Adblock plus and you'll have no problems although it might take a little tuning to get rid of everything there.

    The Situation in Idaho just reinforces my belief that women with concealed carry permits should never keep their firearm in a purse, even if it is designed for such. I see women all the time in the store shopping with their purse unattended in a shopping cart and several feet away from them, if a person snatched the purse they have not only taken all your personal possessions but also a loaded firearm! Also if a woman is jacked on the street the thug will most likely grab her purse and run with it. All who carry should use a concealment system that is on their body at all times and therefore in their control when being carried. Even a concealment fanny pack (which in my mind screams I've got a gun) would be a better choice than a purse. I am in no way trying to trivialize the fact that a woman died tragically, just using it as an example of why purse carry is an extremely bad idea.
