This is a discussion on (Tennessee) Fox News butchered a report this morning... within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I saw the piece and it was not negative.

I saw the piece and it was not negative. Clearly, Allison was firmly in the camp that people should be able to defend themselves. She presented the argument that gun free zones are free fire zones and briely brought up Columbine.
Dave, which has riled up some folks here, was not against the Tennessee legislation, He only opined that this type of law would open the door to bad things happening. He never elaborated. I got the impression he just offered another viewpoint rather than being a
I think the report was very good as it brings the issues to the public so they can make up their own minds.
Admin is County by County, Judge by Judge. NY is MAY issue, not SHALL issue, and it's a crap shoot what you'll run into. In my home town county the issuing judge was decidedly anti-carry, and rejected almost all permit applications unless there were "documented threats" against the applicant.

Took a while to find the 'exact' place to email...found it...sent a message explaining the purpose of CCW in a restaurant serving alcohol.
I also explained FL's law on this matter and pointed out the similar argument given against such a law and shared that there have been no 'saloon shootouts' down here...Sheeesh...these reporters just don't get it.
Maybe if one of them is the victim of a violent robbery on a NY street the picture on the purpose of SD will become more focused.

What was disturbing about Clayton's remarks is that he is supposed to be a true Conservative. Guess he needs to "bone up" on the carry issues.
We are not exactly taking about the "hole in the wall joints" here.
If you think it's hard keeping your sanity just watching the morons on the main stream media when they talk about guns, you should try WORKING there. It's amazing I have not gone crazy by now.
I tried to explain to one of our dumb reporters the other day, after she went on the air and said in her package that a gun used in a crime wasn't registered, that TN doesn't even have a system to register guns and no one in TN is required to register guns at all. She didn't want to hear it because she was sure there was registration because, and I quote: " I've seen it on TV shows. How else do the police solve crimes committed with guns?"
Lost cause. If someone is a reporter, especially on TV, there is a 99.9% chance that they are complete idiots.
We have very few actual reporters out there anymore. Most could only really be thought of as commentators.
Headlines and stories are designed to sell advertising. That's all you need to know. The truth simply doesn't sell as much as shock and drama.
Watch Lou Dobs on CNN and you'll see a member of the media who is an incredible supporter of 2A rights. He reports on 2A issues almost every night, and he ALWAYS sticks up for 2A. Plus, he voices his support in a reasoned and intelligent manner (unlike some of the other loud-mouthed, pontificating newscasters out there).

Thats why I miss newspapers. A printed retraction was COSTLY but made everyone feel better LOL
