    With the rash of gun violence and crime going on, a stright forward news report on carrying......took me by surprise.

    The video-story that ran is on the right.

    People Packing Heat - Jacksonville News Leader

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Right now, more than a half million people in Florida have a concealed weapons permit. That's a 50% jump from three years ago, according to the Department of Agriculture. More than 23,000 of those people are in Jacksonville.

    People you wouldn't even expect to carry guns now feel like they have to. We spoke to two Beaches businessmen, who rallied their friends, and got all of their permits together. Marshall Reddy said, "I don't know if the permit makes me feel safer or not. I think it makes me feel a little more comfortable about what I can and can't do. But do I feel safer? Not necessarily."

    Just because you have a license to carry a weapon, doesn't mean you have a license to use it. The law states they can only be used in self defense.

    "Just getting a concealed carry permit means you haven't commited a crime yet. CCP holders commit crimes." Daniel Vice, senior attorney for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, quoted on Fox & Friends, 8 Jul, 2008

    Well done positive article. One thing I did notice though, not sure which guy it was, kept putting his finger inside the trigger guard. Evidently the course he took didn't teach him to keep your finger off the trigger until your ready to shoot!
