    CCW in the news?

    Hey folks,

    Does anyone maintain a collection of news links or something similar for cases where a CCW holder used his/her weapon against a BG?
    I feel like aggregating articles of this sort could come handy in discussions with antis ...

    To further what Guru just said, Some antis are very smart, do not talk down at these people, give them the facts and let them ask questions, do not try and beat around the bush with your answers. They will pick up on it. Be yourself, be honest, and stay true to your convictions......Good luck.
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    Massad Ayoob's written a number of articles and a book about situations people have found themselves in. Check Backwoods Home Magazine for a list.

    Gun Control Issues -- great list of RKBA articles, quotes.

    This thread linked an article by the Cato Institute - very good read.

    Here's a useful video of a presentation by Massad Ayoob on the Stand Your Ground principle: click.

    While not an "article" showing citizens using force, it's about the principle underlying all of it. Good for presenting a rational response to those who don't get it.
