She's a great Lady (in every sense of the word) and a TRUE conservative. Would have liked to see her.

Unfortunately, the Salem Community Center, by their policy, is an official Target Rich Environment, no CCW allowed. I did write her and wished her success.

When you fear everything you have to stay safe.

Public venues that are known to be gun free zones attract cowards who kill. Proven fact.

"no CCW allowed" I see that stopped everyone else from attending. You must be pretty self important.

You are too afraid to go anywhere in Salem without your gun? I feel sorry for you.

So, how was the event?

OSU600 that remark was uncalled for. Why do you assume it's fear? What about "right"? What is the point of issuing CCW permits if you are told when and where that permit is permissible?

Maybe if you understood Michelle Malkins stance on CCW first, maybe that would have connected that point before you insulted notSocialist.

Are you calling Michelle Malkin a coward?

Newtown has a population of 2000. Compare that population to Salem. They had a nut case that went berserk in their population and gun free zones. Are you this complacent that you don't believe we have these sort of people living amongst us in Salem with our population and size? Think again. Don't make fun of people that want to ensure and protect their safety...you may live in denial that Salem has a dome around us protecting us from the rest of the world...because this makes you FOOL.

I could care less about what Michele Malkin feels about CCW. My point is that if you feel the need to carry a gun then you are living in fear. If you want to carry, fine he law says you can. You want to point out Newtown, I'll return with an event that happened on this date in 1999. Columbine had an armed guard with a gun...he didn't prevent the massacre.

"My point is that if you feel the need to carry a gun then you are living in fear. "

If you have insurance on your home, you are living in fear. Do you have insurance on your home OSU?

Ask the people in the Cinemark theater in Aurora, CO, a gun-free zone.

Oh, wait, you can't, they're dead.

Incredibly reasoned comment!

I do not patronize any business that displays a gun-free zone sticker. Unlike the RINOs that call themselves conservatives in DC, I walk the walk.

I feel sorry for you that you have to try to smear someone you don't agree with. But I've come to expect it.

No, he didn't. The shooters knew his schedule and waited until he was out of the building.

Might try researching before writing.

Nothing like a good conservative woman to bring out the viciousness of the Left... too bad she's not black, then there would REALLY be some nasty comments.

Haha. Where to begin... 1. Not a leftist nor a righty. I'm like a majority of America...in the middle. I'm relatively new to the comment board and usually just laugh at some of the posts, but you guys have gone unchallenged for too long. I'll be around to make sure you don't think too highly of yourselves. 2. You really want to compare home insurance to CCW? Another ridiculous post that is comparing apples to oranges. 3. To Not socialist: I'm sure those businesses that won't let you carry really are shaking in their boots that you don't patronize their stores. Hospitals,schools and the Community Center are likewise relieved that they won't have to deal with your presence 4. If you think I'm "smearing" someone because I asked a simple question then you are WAY to sensitive. Perhaps too sensitive to be carrying.

I'm sure I'll get witty and enlightened commentary...fresh from the talking points of Fox News. BTW, I don't exclusively watch MSNBC either.

OU600 good post, as you see some are very thin skinned. I was in Salem today an I carried but when they say No Guns it no guns that is the law. Joe they were cleaning the old sears lot as I passed.

I'm sure the Salem News editors are reading the comments on this article and are thinking "why in the*****did Ogden ever develop a webpage with a comment feature?"

Let's address your points, OSU.

One: You're not 'relatively' new. I do not believe you 'in the middle'. If so, please list and explain the convervative values you cherish.

Two: You buy home insurance in case of disaster to your house. You carry a handgun in case of disaster toward your life, or others. How is that apples and oranges?

Three: I'm sure most business owners displaying the target-rich environment sticker could care less about restricting my ability to defend myself. They don't know I'm not going in, but if enough people 'don't go in', they might get the message.

"4. If you think I'm "smearing" someone because I asked a simple question then you are WAY to sensitive. "

Not quite accurate:

"My point is that if you feel the need to carry a gun then you are living in fear."

"You are too afraid to go anywhere in Salem without your gun? I feel sorry for you. "
