Concealed Carry of Guns

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - January 9, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: John Longenecker, Paola Harris

Founder of the think tank Good For The Country, Inc., John Longenecker presented the case for concealed carry of handguns in the United States. If a person is in a situation such as a school or mall shooting, there is a period of time (at least four minutes) before help can arrive-- and they are their own first line of defense, he stated. Many crimes are de-escalated by armed citizens, without a gun even having to be fired, he added.

Longenecker compared concealed gun carry to CPR-- in a gravely dangerous situation, if you don't intervene, the results can be irrevocable. Two million people have permits for concealed weapons in the U.S., and everyone should have the freedom to choose this option in order to defend themselves if necessary, he argued.

State laws related to concealed carry differ. The ones that allow it typically require passing a background check, being fingerprinted, completing training and demonstrating proficiency, he detailed. In the states that don't allow the right to carry, criminals know that a higher percentage of people are unarmed, Longenecker said. He also commented that the "anti-violence movement" teaches people to not fight back when confronted, even though statistics show that those who offer resistance fare better.

San Diego UFO

In the first hour, investigative journalist Paola Harris reported on a sighting that took place on Jan. 1, 2008-- a flotilla of lights were seen over San Diego area skies. Watch a video report from Fox 6 News. The channel also offered a follow-up report that suggested people might have been seeing floating lanterns. Harris responded that lanterns don't float in formation, and noted the similarity of the sighting to one in Mexico City.
