    Thumbs up Glad to hear about progress.

    The key is the "Stand your ground" laws. Colorado tried to expand their "castle doctrine" law last year to auto, businesses, but it failed. The representative has presented it again this year.

    Absolutely. It clearly represented the basic purpose of concealed carry and "stand your ground" laws. No whitewash, there. Kudos!!!

    If you're not committing a crime and you fire at someone who is attacking you, others or your property, you cannot be sued or found guilty of that shooting. It really should be that simple.

    I was shocked to see this on Channel 5 News at 10 last night. They are usually victim centric.
    It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.

    People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.

    Very well done, it is too bad that the typical liberal media will never understand it, report it, or buy into it.

    It was very well done. I only wish the station I work for here in Memphis had done it.

    WMC did a great job with that story!

    I wish PA would pass this - duty to retreat is fine, until you are cornered!

    Good piece ...... makes a change.

    Should send kudos to the station so they know positive reporting like that gets noticed. Maybe they will continue it.

    More than 30,000 citizens in Shelby County are licensed to carry handguns, more than any other county in Tennessee.
    That's incredible. As of 2/1/2008, the Kansas Attorney General reports 11,266 CCH holders in the entire state. Wish we could generate numbers like this.

    all they have to say to police are the magic words.
