    David Stern on concealed carry

    Nice bit of anti-gun propaganda put out there by the commish of the NBA-

    NEW YORK (AP) -- David Stern understands having a gun to protect your home. He's not convinced carrying one on the streets makes you any safer.


    For that reason, the NBA commissioner said Wednesday that he would prefer his players leave their firearms behind when they go out.

    "It's a pretty, I think, widely accepted statistic that if you carry a gun, your chances of being shot by one increase dramatically," Stern said during his preseason conference call. "We think this is an alarming subject, that although you'll read players saying how they feel safer with guns, in fact those guns actually make them less safe. And it's a real issue."

    Really David? What statistics would those be? Isn't it a teensy bit irresponsible to make blanket statements without the facts to back them up?

    Well it sure doesn't make you more vulnerable - in fact if sit' awareness aspects are followed, chances are the responsible CCW will indeed be safer. But has that final ''save the butt'' option.

    Gimme a break - this old cherry yet again. Where on earth do the purveyors of that crap actually find it!! I really - really - and truly - want to hear the logic behind that blind rhetoric!!
