    I also believe that as a whole CCW'ers have few traffic violations and hopefully misdeamenors as well!! Afterall you need to be a pretty honest person just to get one of these in the first place. I have been pulled over once in the 13 years I have been CCing and it was for a saftey violation.

    I can remember only twice I've heard our Sheriff's dept. run a license that had a CCW. I'm sure there are plenty I have missed, but that is something I usually listen for and can only remember 2, so I'm guessing CCW folks are Less Likely to be stopped.

    They tend to be more responsible in ALL aspects of their life. Not just the gun related issues.

    I understand that. I also understand the desire to discuss how things went for those who might be really nervous being pulled over while carrying.

Truman won, and we've been ridiculing the paper ever since. Doesn't quite match the current thread's protocol, but you get the idea.
