    So, how did the permit holder play into the story. I'm not going to watch the whole episode just to see.

    He was sad he had gone to get a soda and missed it. Basically he was two minutes too late. The show could have done a better job developing it in California by stating how nearly impossible it is to get a CCW permit and then for one of the cops to say something like "yeahbut then the guy might have gotten three or four shots off instead of 26 and four or five more people might be alive." The show did point out the guy had bought the gun before he had his schizophrenic(spelling I know) break, and that he had bought it in another state. But how, oh my how could someone buy a gun and bring it into California where they have to register it. I was a little ticked over the high-capacity mag bit. The show would have done better to have had one of the cops mistakenly make the assumption and then for it to turn out that the BG had used two pistols instead of one.

    It happened to be on while I was playing Left 4 Dead 2 online.

    There were several references to nut cases seeking "Second Amendment remedies" to imagined problems.

    It was a rocky show and it seemed as if it was just teeter tottering between pro and anti.

    they really laid on thick the whole Palin bulls eye "its all her fault" BS.

    I enjoy the show, and turns out it was just cancelled.

    Yeah, a citizen with a CCW in Cali. That's BS right there, compared to most "shall issue" states. An off-duty LEO might be plausible, but an ordinary Joe Citizen with a CCW in Cali? Absurdly rare to build a story on that premise.

    (That's one of the reasons I left SoCal for FL.)

    Another good reason for the show to be cancelled.

    In LA or SF, yeah, that's not going to happen, but a lot of other counties are much better about issuing to 'average Joe citziens'. That's part of the problem; your ability to get a permit is entirely dependent on the political beliefs of the local sheriff.

    I guess that was to offset all of the anti-gun content on SVU last night.

    I watched part of this show and thought, OMG they actually show a gun owner in a positive light. But the rest of the show was a thinly veiled anti-gun propaganda piece showing us all how bad guns are, how crazy people get guns and clearly implying that only the cops should be allowed to have guns. I changed channels about 20 minutes into the show because it annoyed me so much. I'm waiting for a TV drama to show a concealed carryer stopping a crime, then having the police arrive, and then the rest of the drama would focus on how the cops only come after the fact and that less people would be victims if only more folks carried their own protection and were capable of using their weapon.

    That's the main reason I stopped watching SVU, and most police procedurals for that matter. The one that I've found doesn't get into the anti-gun stuff is Blue Bloods; I figure that with Tom Selleck heavily involved it gets left out. They've even had a discussion on the show where the grandfather (who is a retired NYPD commisioner) argues people ought to be able to carry to protect themselves.

    I caught the 1st minute or so of it, It is not one of my favoitie shows, primarily for the anti-gun rants... Besides there was something else that I wanted to catch...

    However, I did see the part where the CCW holder came up all remorseful,.... after I changed the channel I set there asking myself... "Did I just hear that right?" They actually had sympathy for the CCW holder... ????? Naw, they had to snipe at something later... well the Palin-bullseye comment post answered that...
