Well isn't this nice...

...borderline defamation of CHL holders in this morning's Chronicle:

...Experience, however, shows that concealed handgun permit holders are a direct threat to police. Research by the Violence Policy Center has identified at least eight law enforcement officers who have been killed by concealed carry permit holders nationwide since May 2007. Clearly state legislatures need to substantially revise these laws to protect first responders and innocent citizens.

Mm. I believe research by the Violence Policy Center has been shown to have serious flaws, too.
