Here's a link to the article:
I have to say, after reading this:
And of course, gun sales are conducted through FFL dealers, which must ensure that the sale is to a legally qualified person, and concealed weapon licenses are obviously only granted to those who meet the strict criteria for them, even higher than plain vanilla gun ownership.The high numbers of licensees is hardly encouraging news for Marsha McCartney, president of the Dallas-based North Texas Chapter of the Brady Campaign, a nationwide organization that favors gun ownership restrictions.
Like other gun control advocates, McCartney said she's concerned gun sales are booming in Texas and applications for concealed-weapon licenses are keeping up with those sales.
"I am concerned that some of those people are so frightened and are getting a gun," McCartney said in reference to recent news reports the proliferation of firearms is based on a perceived fear that Obama and Congress want to take people's guns away. "It is sad that there is so much misinformation out there."
It astounds me to no end that these Brady Bunch folks keep up with their disingenuous claim that they are not opposed to gun ownership by law-abiding citizens. They issue their talking points, but their actions and every day speech such as this quote, clearly illustrate their true motive. How stressful it must be to live a constant lie.
If the Brady Bunch were truly concerned with only keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, they should applaud legal gun sales (every gun sold legally is one less gun "on the street") and they should wildly embrace concealed weapon permits, since those folks are the cream of the crop of law-abiding citizens!
