Two Denver Nuggets players seeking permit to carry concealed

2 Nugs seek permits
Hodge, Evans filed paperwork to carry guns 2 months ago

A Denver Nuggets player who was shot nine months ago and traded this week was one of two Nuggets in the process of trying to obtain concealed handgun permits.

But apparently their desire to legally carry guns was not a response to the death of Denver Bronco Darrent Williams.

Guard Julius Hodge, who was traded Thursday to the Milwaukee Bucks as part of a multiplayer deal, and Nuggets forward Reggie Evans, began the process of trying to get permits about two months ago, well before the shooting death of the Broncos cornerback.

Asked about his application for a concealed weapons permit, Hodge said, "Who said that?"

Hodge did not deny applying for the permit but refused to answer questions about why he wanted to carry a gun. (For the rest of the story, click on article title.)

Ok, SO WHAT? What is the big effing deal? Two law-abiding citizens want to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon. WHO'S business is it, other than the issuing authority? Yet, this reporter, Brian Mass, is trying to make it seem like a big deal.

Colorado needs to alter their law on CCW permits to make that info confidential, like it is here in Michigan.

And Mr. Maass needs to go find a REAL story to report on, not the private business of two law-abiding citizens.
