The article is completely biased. The first thing - after the headline and the by-line is a statement of fear from the Left.
statehouse bill to speed up the process for issuing the victims of domestic violence a license to carry a concealed gun worries Twilah Shipley, the director of ACCESS-York.A discussion of what the bill actually says is buried in the middle of the story.
Metcalfe said the bill would empower somebody who is fully eligible to carry a gun to protect herself. The victims aren't limited to abusive domestic relationships; the bill could apply to anybody facing imminent danger, such as a witness testifying against a gangster.While we get 2 quotes from Lefty orgs opposed, and one quote from a cop seeing a problem of balance and safety, and a statement from the bills author. We get nothing from groups supporting the measure, and no hard data about defensive uses of firearms. Hardly a surprise. [h/t KABA]
"We have seen where police could not act," Metcalfe said. "People who have had the ability to use a firearm protected themselves, a child or a neighbor and stopped the perpetrator."
