    This week's Dead Zone had an interesting gun moment....A Psychiatrist holds the main character at gun point when he breaks into his office.The next scene the sherrif asks him if he has a permit..he says yes and shows it to him..and THAT WAS IT...no liberal soap boxing or psuedo-moral crap....he just looks at the permit and hands it back to him......I like this show more and more every week....

    Fly for your ointment:

    Why would the psychiatrist need a permit for a firearm in his own place of business? Maybe I'm assuming, but I thought the show was set in Maine.

    I would rather people believe you need a permit to own a firearm then to think "Anyone with a firearm is lunatic"

    Maine only requires a permit to carry concealed. Including a vehicle's glove box. Open carry is ok. No mention of a place of business at all.

    Considering this is a TV show.. I would much rather the sherriff said "got a permit" than "Hey don't you know your not supposed to have one of those, those are dangerous, you'll shoot your eye out!!!!"

    Flashback to 1978, in the original "Halloween"... The psychiatrist has a gun, tells the Sheriff he has a permit, shows it to him, and nothing more is said about it.

    I liked this show too, but I think you're watching reruns. I thought this show was canceled a couple of years ago. Let me know if I'm wrong about that.
