You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
1) Call someone with a gun.
2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man
In FL alone there are over 600,000 CWFL holders.
My math comes up with a .0002316 percentage.
Wonder how that compares to Driver's License holders?

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
I can't believe the delusional buffoon didn't headline it as "MURDERS'"
in place of "killings"
Did I mention that Sugarmann's an idiot?
He could not hold down a legitimate job, if he had the help of the whole olympic wrestling team.
Always do right--this will gratify some and astonish the rest.

Folks, bear in mind that I think it's blown way out of proportion. And I think the % of killings compared to the # of CCP holders would be very small. In the 1% or less range.
But NONE of the killings they have listed were even close to being justified. Look through some of them. When the number was 79 or so I read through all of them. Some have nothing to do with a CCP, some of them should have had theirs revoked or never issued. But none are defensive shootings as far as I saw.
Wonder how they feel about Gary Klecks assertion that there are 2 million defensive uses of a firearm every year?
Pretty sad when the article is posted on an anti website and gets taken apart by the replies. I have a feeling it'll be removed pretty soon......
"The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree..."

Folks, you will have to excuse me...I need to wash my computer after logging onto that site.

Personally, if I see an article that might be interesting, and find that it's in the Huffington Compost, I just pass on it.

Author of that dribble Josh Sugarmann holds a FFL. Check him out on the 'net.
When you look at his writings and his background, he is a paradox.
You have the power to donate life.
I'm sure if you took the average number of incidents reported in the NRA's "Armed Citizen" column per month over the same time period it would more than triple the number of deaths from CPL holders.
