    Front page article on CCW!

    In the local paper. Not horrible. The range in the picture is where I work. Feel free to contact the News Journal and comment. We have had a bunch of folks writing them and another of their reporters has taken the CCW class at our range.

    I just added a response to the anti's in the "comments" section.
    Why do you own a fire extinguisher when you have the fire department to protect you?

    As harsh as it is to say, the more anti gun types who are attacked by criminals, the better it is for us. Some will change their views after something like that shocks them out of their little illusion of safety.

    And some will be so traumatized by the experience that they fade away, locked behind closed doors, unable to face the outside world for fear of anyone attacking them again.

    Both results are to our benefit.

    Me too! Here is what I wrote.

    "When Florida first passed the concealed carry law the anti's said it would be the wild west. If didn't happen. When Texas and Tennessee later passed their concealed carry law the people said the same thing. It didn't happen. In my home state of Kansas they again said the same thing. It hasn't happened. In fact it hasn't happened in any state.

    You folks need to get some new writers. You really ought to be embarrassed. One definition of a fool is to make the same mistake over and over again and expect a different result. Well there are only a couple of states left without concealed carry laws. I guess being wrong 48 times in a row doesn't mean you won't be right on these last two states does it?

    haha funny. I read that you had posted in the backtalk section zw17, put i didn't remember your name. So I read a bunch of them and tried to guess which one was from a guy on this forum.
    Easy guess!! Nice reply and it was nice to see that the anti's were in the minority. Of course some idiots spinkled in to make us look bad though.

    Sadly though, there are also some who will re-double their efforts to do away with "those evil guns", as in their mind's, It was the gun that attacked them, Not the criminal holding it.
    When Guns Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have guns

    Just remember, When seconds count help is mere minutes away

    Also remember, When you go to trial by jury you are putting yourself into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

    While some who become victims, do change their stance.....others, sadly become rabidly anti.

    Take the Brady Bunch as an example.....

    Here we had an assault in DC (where, oddly enough, IT IS ILLEGAL TO HAVE A HANDGUN!) in which a person shoots President Reagan , hits James Brady, a DC LEO & a Secret Service Agent.

    As a result, we have a group spawned who has done more damage to LEGAL FIREARM OWNERS than by any other. All due to the ILLEGAL act of a nut, who possessed a firearm where it was ILLEGAL to do so.....Instead of blaming the the 'looney toons', they concentrate on the object. That's like blaming the gas chambers for killing millions of Jews in WW2, instead of blaming the Nazis!

    Using this same logic.....Why is it we're still allowed to drive cars?...They kill tens of thousands more? After all, it's not the driver's fault......

    Mine is post #53.

    That guy MARK is an idiot. Although being rude of offensive will likely get you ignored by him.

    Mark #2 sounds young and a poor working class liberal twit. You won't change his mind. If he got robbed he's be the first to say "where are the police." Personal accountability is something he can't even grasp. he's not an "ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" type. He's the "give it to me because I breath" type.
    He might be afraid of having women running around with guns because he has to be gentlemen.
