We should make another blog about cops who 'abuse' the priviledge...no offense meant to the MANY great cops out there...just pointing out the uselessness of such a blog...just an 'anti' info site.

I will admit that I have commited crimes as a CCW. Jaywalking, Speeding, Failing to stop completly at a Stop sign. The above blog is a waste of time.

Pick any demographic with a population in the millions and you will find a certain percentage of nuts, criminals, and just plain bad actors. Our particular demographic is no different. What is different, is the extremely low percentage of the aforementioned nuts, criminals, and bad actors compared to the rest of society. Unfortunately, that doesn't get reported by the anti's. To the contrary, they tend to do everything they can to hide it.

I'd be interested in also seeing all the incidents in which a ccw holder used his/her firearm in a legitimate case of self defense.
Selective data is almost always misleading, and often intentionally.
A traffic ticket is formal recognition of a lapse in situational awareness.
If you go read the blog, she says that she has no problem with CCW or with those who responsibly accept the responsibility. She just has a problem with those who abuse the privilege.
I didn't like the blog, but read what she says before you judge. This is just an accountability lesson.

How about....... "A blog cataloging crimes committed by people who have created blogs"
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
I did read some past articles and she cites the VPC and makes a claim that NRA claims about the Thune amendment are false. She just doesn't get it and her perspective is all out of whack.
I don't think he's getting a lot of readers to his blog.
I went through every page (4) of his blog. Not reading it, just checking the number of comments.
One entry had 5 comments and two other entries had 1 comment each for a grand total of 7 comments.
All the rest of the posts had a Big "0" comments!
