Funny they Q13 Fox, says there are people with concealed carry permits and shows open carriers.

I still think our law is flawed. They presented as a fact in the Zimmerman trial that a child of 17 punching Zimmerman a few times could not be life threatening, but I think maybe a few should have been informed of a child of 17 that punched a soccer coach 1 time and he died because of it.

They forget to mention "Disparity of Force", just because they have no "physical" weapon having your head slammed into the pavement is reason for self defense.

Disparity of Force is defined as a situation that any reasonable person would conclude places you at an overwhelming disadvantage in your effort to protect yourself against immediate and serious bodily injury.

Here are some examples of Disparity of Force:

Large man against small man.
Able bodied man against disabled man.
Man against woman.
Two or more men against one man.
Two or more juveniles against one man or one woman.
Man or woman known to have training in the martial arts against untrained man or woman.
Again, your adversaries (even in a disparity of force situation) must be demonstrating the ability, opportunity, and intent to inflict immediate and serious bodily injury to you or those around you in order to justify shooting.

It is my opine that they show us openly carrying because concealed carriers look just like everyone else. I do like seeing my butt every time they run a gun article now. I think I show up because my pistol is green instead of black.

Hilarious that that bicyclist ran into the reporter, shows the nuttiness of these cyclists in Seattle.

What does the number of Texas licenses have to do with laws in Washinton? Did the reporter forget where he was?

I thought they were going to mention we have more active CPL's than Texas. I'm thinking he really did forget where he was.
