A Pro-gun, Pro-concealed-carry Article in the Cincinnati Enquirer?

Hell Frozen OverThe Enquirer - Concealed-carry course graduates are armed but not dangerous I don't believe it.

This is the report of someone - very new or completely new to shooting - taking a concealed carry permit class in Ohio. It is a wonderful story, that even includes a smack-down on the Left and the anti-gun crowd.
From what I can tell, legal concealed carry is nothing like the anti-gun crowd made it sound when Kentucky and Ohio passed laws in 1999 and 2004. There are no cowboys. No wild shootouts. No blood in the gutters, as gun-banners predicted. Just law-abiding adults who want to exercise their Second Amendment right to self-defense.
Law-abiding citizens take classes and get permits and remain law-abiding citizens. Criminals don't classes and don't care about being law-abiding. They just care about preying on helpless victims. [hat tip to Xavier]
