Brady Bunch slams CCW Permit holders

(The quoted comment below was first blogged on John Lott's Website.)

With absolutely NO EVIDENCE, (because all evidence that does exist, points to the
complete opposite of Mr. Helmke's insinuations.)

Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, which opposes open-carry laws: "We don't want more people carrying guns either openly or concealed because the more guns you have in a situation, the more likely you are to get gun violence."

WHAT is this guy's problem? Is he not getting laid? Does he not know how to read? Seems to me, he needs to get a life, or rather, get out and enjoy life, in stead of staying closed up, in that office, believing all the bull sh*t his "researchers" are feeding him, in that
deep, dank, dark hole, know as the Brady Campaign.

And yes, as a Concealed Pistol License holder, I do take offense at his words. I have yet to shoot anyone, since I got my permit, almost 6 years ago. (Don't ask me about what happened before that. )

But I'll be more than willing to listen to his apology......if he has the gonads to make one. (Which I highly doubt.)
