An Example from CBS of Media Bias regarding Concealed Handgun Permits :: 01/17/2018

Here is a very short clip of Hawaii Five-O trying to provide an example of a concealed handgun permit holder representing a danger to others.  Other parts of the program show the permit holder as a real jerk and eventually stealing a gun from a police officer and shooting someone.

 

Despite the impression this show provides, some information on how extremely law-abiding permit holders are is available here and here.

This wouldn’t be so bad if CBS also used the show to illustrate the benefits of concealed handgun permit holders.  For example, has CBS ever done a show with a concealed handgun permit holder saving the life of a police officer such as these?  That seems pretty unlikely.  It happens much more frequently than many might think (see examples here).
