Behavior of permit holders in Tennessee

From Tennessee:

More than 190,000 Tennesseans have permits, issued by the state, to carry handguns. . . .

"Their behavior records is better than our uniformed police," Niceley tells NewsChannel 5's chief investigative reporter Phil Williams. "We've had no problems. We've not had shoot-outs at the OK Corral, like some of these people predicted."

It's a sentiment echoed by state Rep. Eddie Bass, D-Prospect.

"From a law enforcement perspective and with 20 years, I've never, never had a problem with a gun permit holder," the former sheriff says. . . .

If my math is right channel 5 is complaining because.002% of CCW permit holders have committed violent crimes. I would bet that's a heck of a lot better than the members of the press.

Consider that Tennessee has fewer people than NYC and probably 8-10x as many permit holders. May be you should send this statistic to Mike Bloomberg.
