It seems there is always concern, but the numbers of concealed carry license holders committing violent crimes never comes to pass. I recall when carrying on National Parks became legal that the bloodbath would be endless according to the anti-gun crowd. It still hasn't happened even once to my knowledge.

The article is bumped to a subscription site but I found it at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788... And big surprise Fremont, CA's police chief is unhappy that people are armed. CA the land of EUREKA! NOW BAN IT...

The International Association of Chiefs of Police doesn't speak for all of law enforcement. Many LEOs I know think it is great more people are potentially carrying.

, president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, said he could remember only "one instance in which someone effectively defended himself" with a firearm during his 21 years as police chief in Fremont, Calif. Otherwise, "it's a whole lot of cases of guns being used not in ways they're designed: kids shooting themselves, gun-cleaning accidents, crimes of passion, that sort of thing."
How many children of cops have shot themselves ?

How many cops have had a gun cleaning accident ?

How many cops have shot their wives, or wives shot their cop husbands ? That sort of thing ?

This has what to do with the number of people who have applied for permits/licenses to carry a concealed firearm for protection?

Please define "gun crazies" for us. Does making the choice to carry a firearm for personal protection make a person one of the "gun crazies?" Is there a magic number of guns a person can choose to own before they become one of the "gun crazies?" Apparently, I must not be one of the "gun crazies" because I didn't get the memo that anyone was taking over Washington.

...I also think he should subscribe to the NRA and read the "Armed Citizen" article. Every month there is another list of citizens using a gun properly to save their hide from a criminal.

Yep. Every year hundreds of criminals are shot and people are protected by it.

Remember the liberal socialist do not want you to protect yourselves! It is estimated that law abiding citizens use firearms, even the mere display, to thwart harm to themselves over a million times a year, yet the leftists refuse to acknowledge this fact.

An armed law abiding citizen could have prevented, or at least minimized, the SH tragedy.

Cops are nothing more than violent thugs. I'd feel far safer without them.

Did you know the most victimized group by law enforcement is the mentally ill? A police officer can execute a mentally ill person with extreme prejudice and get off scott free because the law does NOT protect anyone who has a medical record stating they have an illness.

Having a mental illness is like having a prison sentence for life.
