Default We need more reports like this

http://www.abc4.com/content/about_4/bios/story/conceal-and-carry-stabbing-salt-lake-city-smiths/NDNrL1gxeE2rsRhrWCM9dQ.cspx#.UA2VvEpa_7E.facebook


If the media would make more reports like this one, maybe peoples attitude towards firearm owners might not be so skewed....but that would not fit main stream medias agenda. I am sure this story will not get any national coverage.

JD1969,

This is very good! I wish some CCWs would have been present in the Theater in Colorado things might have came out different there for JR the COWARD!

Great story. Surprised to see it aired. American Rifleman TV should air such a segment after each "I Have This Old Gun"!

That is an outstanding story. We could use a lot more of those.

Haven't been to NYC have you? anything over 3" is banned, can't even buy a knife from Home Depot without showing ID and answering questions about why you need it
