At about the same time today, Old Trooper and Mr Wolf sent us the same link to an article about the Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright discussing a recent attempted rape in his county by a repeat offender. WYFF Channel 4 reports that the sheriff took the opportunity to lecture the press on the benefits of concealed carry weapons;
Wright said, “It’s too bad someone with a concealed weapons permit didn’t walk by. That would fix it.” He said people are tired of doing the right thing and criminals getting away with their actions.
He said several times, “I want you to get a concealed weapons permit.”
Wright said, “I’m tired of looking at victims saying, ‘There’s life after this’ … I’m tired of saying, ‘We’re sorry, we can’t keep them in jail.’”
Wright said in his view gun control is, “How fast can you can get the barrel of your gun back on the target?”
According to the report, Wright mentioned several times that his listeners should get guns and a CCW license.
“I want you to get a concealed weapons permit. Don’t get Mace. Get a firearm.”
Compare that to the blather coming out of New York, California and Illinois.
