    Good article, well reasoned and fair. Definitely seemed to fall on the pro-shall issue side. All the anti-carry arguments are emotion driven, no logic or evidence. I sent a copy to my significant other, who worked for the Republican majority in the Assembly while in school at Delaware, for her thoughts. Even though I'm moving to Virginia shortly, I'd love to see Delaware go shall issue. Might make Maryland think twice. :evil:

    "I know full well that good citizens in the heat of passion can use a gun," says the convicted-and-served felon, now turned preacher...

    Translation: "Back when I was a criminal, if one of my victims had a gun, I might've been shot. Especially if I made him or her angry!"

    Any other reading makes one wonder what a "good citizen" is: if you, say, shoot your spouse in the course of an argument, that would not be good citizenship. And if you'd do that and don't have a gun, you're just as likely to take a knife or a baseball bat to the person you're arguing with. Or perhaps try to run over him or her with a car.

    Any argument based on "tempation" ignores all the other ways of doinf harm to others that are all around us, all the time.

    The good reverend may not even be consciously aware of it, but what he's really concerned about is criminals being shot by the law-abiding in the course of commiting crimes. That's not a sentiment I share.

    Wrong! Criminals use guns in the heat of passion, but good citizens don't.

    The trouble with leftist extremists and criminals is that they think everyone is like themselves.
