    This author is a jackass. As I said on another forum, how about Yosamite Sam for us and Chicken little for them?

    I'm always amazed that they keep writing that drivel.

    Every state it's the same thing, old west shootouts, blood in the streets predictions, then once it starts of course nothing happens.

    Keep this article and send it back to the idiot a year from now with a package of ketchup so he can eat his words.

    Let's see. Over 2000 applications. That's less than 1% of the population. If I were a business owner, why would I care about a small handful of people who paid around $300 to get a carry permit? How much did the bad guys pay to carry their guns? :eek: I think I'd find better uses for my store front advertising space.

    I will keep my eye open for the signs, as they start popping up. I love to vote, AND I will vote, with my feet and my wallet going somewhere else, as soon as I tell the manager. And a letter the the main offfice if it is a chain.
    Since this is the high road, I will probably leave my cart, full of expensive stuff, with the cashier as I leave.

    In case any one has forgotten, it has not been too long since "blockbuster" had to back down on national policy. Personally, I still go elsewhere anyway, but they got my card mailed to them cut in half.

    I'm in Wichita and everyone here already packs heat....we need more armed citizens! I sport my own stickers on my Z71...."My othere auto is a .45" and "Nothing in this vehicle is worth your life" and "Insured by Colt" keep an eye out.

    Having had the misfortune of meeting Mr. Schofield on a couple of occasions I will have to concur with that statement (he's just as smug in person as in print...actually a little worse because he can't look you in the eye).

    I love the fact that he mentions police firing at a suspect 18 times and missing him. He failed to mention that many police officers frequently don't get enough range time, some only get the time they spend qualifying with their weapons. It would seem, however, that most people i'm exposed to with a CCW are gun enthusiasts and practice with their weapons often.

    Side-note: I agree with the above about police not getting much range time.

    However, a friend of mine, who is with the Kansas City, Missouri police department recently shot a perfect 100 on his qualifying shoot. He was so proud, he brought the target to the Emergency Room to show me. I told him that, if it were me, I'd frame it and hang it on the wall.

    I also told him that if I was ever in a shoot out, I'd want him on my side.:D

    Thats very telling about whats going on in the heads of antis ... to the anti, a police officer is a "trained firearms professional" who has "hours and hours of training with firearms" and are "true experts unlike the unwashed, untrained, idiots-er-masses."

    You would be amazed how quickly antis come over to our side when they realize that as a group, police officers are often less trained, less capable and less safe than most typical gun owners.

    Don't know if citizens pay attention to signs in your part of the country, like the ones that say stop, speed limit 65, and so on... they don't around here.

    Where? Just show me where any of his womanly, hand-wringing hysteria has transpired.

    Guess what, in some states like my own, you don't need any, I repeat, any "training". Where are the shootout over parking spots at the mall? Where are all the innocents killed by stray gunfire as pistol carriers blindly empty magazine after magazine into churches,malls, and coffee houses hitting innocent bystander liberal men in dirty sweater vests and sandals?

    If hitting anything in real life is sooo difficult, I demand that the Kansas police, especially the officers that patrol the author's neighborhood be disarmed and their weapons be sent to me.:)

    Signage

    As much as a a gun with a circle sign (guns allowed) would amuse me, I find it repugnant. Under English Common Law (Upon which American Justice was founded), anything not specifically outlawed is legal. Using this principle, the burden of posting should be on those who do not wish to have firearms present in their businesses. I realize that everyone has private property rights, but should we really be forced to make assumptions ?

    Yup... we just had our first carjacking today, I'm so proud. Hasn't made it to the news yet.

    That, and a guy I went to school with won't face the death penalty for killing a girl I went to school with.

    http://thatsrich.blogspot.com/2006/10/gc-murder-case-no-death-penalty-for.html

    If anyone has ever been to this town, you'd think it's the last place one would need a concealed weapon. It's sad people are learning the hard way.

    So if it can happen here it can happen in small towns in Kansas and any other small town anywhere else in the country.

    Is it just me or is this country loaded with misanthropes? God forbid your fellow man carry a gun for personal protection! I think what shocks me most about the antis is not their fear of firearms, but their lack of faith in their fellow man to use them appropriately.

    Here in MS, I see the occassional "no firearms!" sign or "no pistols" picture, but I'm yet to see "carrying of a pistol or revolver is prohibited," which is, I believe, the only sign that matters under the law ;)

    Actually concealed carry laws DO tend to bring about a situation much like the "Wild West" ... during the so-called "Wild West", violent crime rates were about 1/10th of what they are now.

    Of course the disappointment will be that Hollywood and John Wayne steered them wrong :what:
