The problem is, right or wrong, the BG was a permit holder. That is a problem because that is all the media will build their story upon... "A permit holder, today, shot..." And they will not be lying when they say "a permit holder". He had a permit.Originally posted by Gargoyle:
Melin, your title mimics that of the ill-informed, alarmist media tactics. In my world that is not a permit holder who shot a cop, it's a criminal who shot a cop who illegally obtained a permit.
Now it would be different if they said "The holder of a permit, gained illegally, today shot..." What's the chance of that?
But the fact is, through somebody's screw up, he was, in fact, a 'permit holder'.
