    Ti,

    It's OK, won't hold that against her, I'm married too!
    I just like to "window-shop."

    Don't we all!

    Update: Maria posted on Missouri carry thanking everyone for there support and I posted this thread so she could see that it's moving around fast.

    I can't post the thread because of having to sign up first to see it so I just wanted to let you know she is aware of the threads and she say's she is going to keep up on CCW.

    If we keep knocking at the door with support for her story maybe Maria will do another follow up story on the positive support she has received.

    That was well done. While I personally feel that I shouldn't need any kind of license to carry a firearm (and I'm strange enough that I do not think people should be precluded from owning fully automatic firearms...), we did have a long, tiring fight here in Missouri to get our right to carry recognized by the state. My wife worked a lot of hours during the first round, when St Louis basically told the rest of the state via the voting booth that we couldn't carry.
    It's good to see any positive media coverage. I do hope Maria follows up on her story.

    That story actually gave me a shiver (in the good way) as the media NEVER usually portrays guns in any way but a negative light.
    i applaud her, the reporter and the tv station for being HONEST!!
    and the sherriff also. very honest seeming man with integrity to be willing to go in front of his voters and say that!
    more honesty is what this "battle" needs.
    and for some states it is a battle.

    This is mine. That is yours.

    Lets keep it that way.

    Frist I had heard of it or seen it,, as an old retired cop , itwarms my heart to see a CHief/Sheriff who has some common sense, and it appears that the reported at least is fair minded about the whole issue.

    NOticed in the segment, that Billy Joe was using the 22 for practice, here again for me it showed a coach with sense

    We generally lose our rights incrementally, in small bites. So to see positive media and public reaction towrds what many of us believe is already our right, may mena that we are winning. Albeit in small ways.

    I was sufficiently pleased with the report that I fired off an "attaboy" (make that "attagirl") email before I read the rest of the thread. I think she provided a public service with her segment, and the fact that she featured another female might help convince a few women that shooting isn't strictly a male pursuit. She may well indirectly prevent some crimes via her report, not to mention providing peace of mind to women and those who care about them.

    In her line of work, I would think that having a permit would be a good idea.

    Good work, Maria!

    I understand the few arguments above, but I, too, like to see these reports. Not alot of places that give concealed carry a positive report like that video. If I lived in that area, that would certainly be the station, I supported....
