Great Article on Fox News about Concealed Carry

My Thoughts

The Brady campaign, in their quest to kill our constitutional right to keep and bear arms, is constantly trying to spin news stories concerning defensive shootings as examples of the problems that gun ownership causes.  The reality is that, bad people sometimes do bad things.  There is no getting around that.  That said, all the gun control in the world isn’t going to stop bad people from doing bad things; however, the one thing gun control is guaranteed to do is to infringe on our ability to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the nefarious deeds of people who will always be outside of gun control, the bad people in this world.

If you were to listen to Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign, you’d think that the streets would be a constant blood bath in places with less gun control.  Take Utah for example.  In Utah, you can carry concealed weapons on college campuses.  By the Brady Campaign logic, you’d expect a shooting a day at college from this policy.  Oddly enough, there doesn’t seem to be any record of a shooting on a college campus there.  How well did the gun-free zone at Virginia Tech work out?  I’m not making light of the tragedy that befell that school and her students.  In fact, I’m appalled that our society had degraded to the point that a tragedy like this can be allowed to happen because our rights to bear arms have been infringed.

The bottom line is that the Brady Campaign has been making false claims for years to brainwash Americans into believing that it is in their best interest to enact strict gun laws for their protection.  They have no data to back up the claims they’ve made, and in cases where strict gun laws are in place such as Chicago and Washington DC, the gun violence is far worse than in other places.

All of this brings me to an excellent article I read on Fox News.  I encourage all of you to read it.
