    King5 shares current CPL rate by county

    I found this on king 5 it looks like it is only a few days old. King 5 shares statistics on the most and least populated countys by CPL. They actually do state that open carry is legal and you only need a CPL to conceal but the news story still irritated me. I feel like the news is continuing to make a story out of nothing and push the gun issue. Assuming their information is correct I was not surprised by what county has the least amount of CPL holders

    Pretty awfully biased news story. The reporter and WSU researcher seemed surprised and dumbfounded that areas with higher permit rates had lower crime...

    Didn't seem that bad to me. I agree that it's odd that a "social science researcher" would be "surprised by the wide variation in CPL rates in counties".

    I was not surprised by the intolerance and gleeful stereotyping in the comments section by the anti-gun crowd.
