I sorta stopped watching CNN after Sanjay Gupta started doing those medical special investigations crap. He specializes in neuro-surgery (or something along the lines) but because his name has "Dr" that makes him an agricultural know-it-all regarding e-coli. I'll listen to a Texas A&M aggie before I take advice from that "doc" any day.

After seeing media coverage like this, it makes you wonder how accurate ANY news reports you hear really are.
Flithy Philly's problems are people with permits????? What? Where did that leap come from??? Now ALL their reports on ANY subject are suspect!

The biggest problem is that there are plenty of people who do watch it and believe it without a doubt. If lying in news reports was illegal, the major news network managers would all be in prison.

"Colt Hut, we deliver in 30 minutes or less or your firearm is free."
"Yeah, uh, I wanna get a large 12 gauge with extra 00, and a large SKS, hold the bayonet please, and two medium 45s with rails and night sights. Oh, and throw in a bag of JHPs with those 45s."
"Okay, did you want the Remington or the Mossberg with that 12 gauge?"
"The Remington. Make it with the pistol grip too, I like those."
"All right. We're running a special on S&W 642s. Buy three for $5 each. Did you want to get some of those?"
"Oh, wow, that's a good price for those. Okay, I'll take half a dozen of those too."
"Okay, so one large Remington with extra 00; one large SKS, hold the bayonet, two medium 45s--you wanted Colt Commanders? We don't have those with the rails, is that all right?"
"Uh, make it Kimbers then. No aluminum frames though."
"Okay, two steel Kimbers with night sights and rails, with a bag of JHPs--"
"Make it a case of JHPs!"
"Okay, a case of JHPs; and half a dozen S&W 642s. Anything else?
"Uh, yeah, two diet Cokes."
"Okay! We'll have it there in 30 minutes or less or it's free. Thank you for calling Colt Hut. Have a nice night!"
Easy as pizza, my a$$.

Psst CNN.....forget guns, the real show is in charging Automobile Manufacturers and the UAW for all the horrible accidents on the road caused by speeders and drunk drivers....I mean, check it out, why all the cars have speedometers that exceed 55mph....and we all know that nobody needs a car that will go that fast, right?

What does the increase in CCW permits have to do with an increase in crime? (NOTHING!)
Is there a correlation between the increase in CCW permits and the increase in crime by said "permit holders"? (NOPE)
I just have ONE more thing to say about this:
It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

Facts and logic mean nothing to these folks. They want unarmed wage slaves to generate much tax money with which they can buy the votes to stay in office through welfare programs.
