    Impressively unbiased, even noting the very small number of permits revoked (2%) and why, "reasons ranging from mental illness to dui's and address changes" after the brady bunch nimrod expresses his concern over how many conceiled carriers where criminals.

    WOW! from historically anti-gun CBS?????

    IMO:
    1. the anti-gun media are (finally) having their minds changed by the evidence? 5%
    2. the anti-gun corporate honchos are finally paying attention to how Americans' attitudes toward guns are changing? 50%
    3. the realization that CPL holders are growing in number and influence - we watch TV and we vote 40%
    4. CBS is trying to be more balanced in their coverage of firearm related matters? 5%

    Great to see a story like this on one of the networks......Maybe there is hope! I think that it is finally becoming a well known fact that the CHL holders in this country are the good guys and we do vote, spend money, pay taxes etc. etc.

    Perhaps they thought the Brady guy came off more robustly and nailed it better than he actually did.

    Sadly, you may have nailed it with that observation.

    So no permits being revoked because law-abiding citizens are indiscriminately going around shooting people. The Brady Bunch must be so disappointed.

    Wow! Reporting news rather than making it. That's got to be a first for a network news program. Maybe it will start a trend.

    An odd story. It gives information about the permit process, albeit only for Colorado, but then goes on to say something about the fact that "...there's no national database on who has the weapons." Then they talk about a Brady-buncher who they say thinks that (the fact that there's no national database) needs to change. He says that "I'm willing to accept that the majority of CCW holders are law abiding...that's not where this conversation needs to be. It needs ot be on those who are not."

    It seems (SEEMS) that they are only talking about pubilicizing the names of CCW holders & not all gun owners - which I really don't believe - but I'm curious about what they think this will really help. All I've ever heard from the BB is that firearms are bad...period.


    By the way, DMan has recently posted a link (CBS News - Concealed carry catching on...) to the same CBS video, but with an accompanying text story.
