Most people don't want to be responsible; they want others to take care of everything for them.

First, mainstream media would have to actually acknowledge that these stories actually exist.

For every one we hear about there are at least 10 murders that were not ccw that we don't hear about.

Chicago has tough gun laws and the highest murder rate in the Country.

That tells us something..........

How many will it take? I'm guessing this many.

It won't matter how many. All it takes is one nut with a CCW to erase all our gains.

We need more laws written by a few crazies to protect us from a few crazies.

A ccw holder decided let his road rage get to him and shot and killed another driver in SJ within this year i think. Ill have to googlefu for a link.

That's not what the antis are about.

A quote from an update today on that article:

Igbinosa Oronsaye, whose mother was married to Gildersleeve, told the Tribune he wasn't convinced the shooter acted properly.

"Some people don't actually know how to use guns," he said. "They go to firing ranges, but it's not the same as a bullet going into someone's body, it's not the same as a bullet going into flesh. ... You just took a brother, you just took a father from a lot of people. Somebody's got to answer for that."

I really hate that so many people nowadays have this mindset where they are always the victim no matter what they did in first place.

Geraldo Rivera stated that there were no such things as positive stories where gun owners prevented crime, that it was a "fantasy". I was taken back at this as I thought he was (once) a good reporter, but that claim showed his ignorant bias.

He also mentioned how during the LA riots he had a CCW and almost pulled it on a civilian who snuck up on him, he decided "never again" at that point I guess. Goes to show you the anti mindset is one of naivety and fear.

The Anti Gun folk (including the mainstream "media") have some pretty significant "heros", and are apparently going to keep using their playbooks:

"If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth." - Joseph Goebbels

"A lie told often enough becomes the truth." - Vladimir Lenin

It is getting a small amount of exposure. The AP picked it up.

I'd like to see the NRA and other such organizations start running self defense commercials based on the true stories in magazine columns such as the ones in The American Rifleman, American Handgunner and others.

Make a series of them, stressing women and minorities as the responsible gun owners. It's time we started our own propaganda - only ours would be based on fact, not some "study".

I first heard of ccw when I was 12. Noting that it took a law abiding citizen to obtain the permit, I thought it was a great idea. Having responsible armed citizens, hidden in plain sight. Keeps criminals thinking.

I can't wait to move to a free state. I kind of like how Arizona has constitutional carry but also has the permit system to grant privilege to typically restricted places.

It doesn't matter. Believers will believe, haters will hate no matter what.
