that's a community i don't mind being a part of, as opposed to some that i may be forced to join
but here's a point or 2....
Paul Flondarina, SLED's chief information officer, said South Carolina is following a national trend of increasing numbers of people who want to carry concealed weapons.
He thinks rifles and shotgun purchases are taking a back seat to assault rifle sales, especially since Obama took office. He said some people are using those guns to hunt wild game.
"It's an ego thing," Flondarina said. "It's like driving a Corvette down the road. People are like, 'Hey, look at me.'"
what an arrogant prick. that bastard knows nothing about me.
Meanwhile, the proliferation of concealed weapons concerns crime victim advocates, who say a heavily armed citizenry will not make people more safe.
"It becomes a deadly game," said Laura Hudson, executive director of the S.C. Crime Victims Council. "Where is all of this ending? Is everybody going to have a weapon? Are we going back to the Wild West? It just escalates."
need i even answer this? i'd ask laura to provide evidence of her silly ass claim, but she'd once again repeat her propoganda to TheState with nothing to back it up and they'd once again print it without question. funny how these "investigative journalists" become so much less investigative when one of their pals pushes an agenda. no laura, it doesn't "escalate". shall issue CCW permits have been issued since the early 90s and it has not "escalated" nor has it became "the wild west". bottom line, you are full of shit.
i'm not even reading the rest of this, i don't have any more time to waste on it.
