About 90,000 permits issued.
"I think people were so concerned about it in the beginning, because there was a lot of media hype and speculation," said Urbana Police Chief Patrick Connolly. "But quite honestly, we have often said the people who are law-abiding and take the time to go to class and register and understand the concept, hopefully, are going to be smart enough to handle the firearm appropriately. So, I don't think this was something out of the ordinary."So Josh Sugarmann's 'Concealed Carry Killer' list tastes like crow right about now. The constant screams of claims that permit holders will have shoot-outs over parking spaces and handing out licenses to gang bangers are as much BS as they were near 30 yrs ago when FL started the avalanche of states passing CCW laws.
Danville police Sgt. Josh Campbell agreed, saying "When you're talking concealed-carry, it's mostly your law-abiding citizens, who don't cause problems anyway."
Not that this will stop the PuSH'ers from repeating it endlessly and grasping for any perceived wrongdoing committed by the fraction of a percent of the millions of permit holders across the nation.
