    Chris: Do you think that if firearms were outlawed that no one would carry a gun? You must be an avid Clinton supporter...LOL.

    Proof positive that anyone with a clean record can tote a gun around with a CCW permit. I am sure glad she did not kill anyone, obviously if she can't control her gun while taking a #2, how could she control her gun when confronted with a violent situation? Let's hear it from the gun nuts about how everyone should carry a firearm, and how much of a better place we would live in..She will end up killing someone alright, and it will not be the intended target!
