Hit Piece: What I learned in concealed carry class
 Could be one of Oleg's pictures, but it wasn't identified.

Earlier this year, my wife and I attended our day-long course that is a state prerequisite to obtaining a concealed handgun permit. Unsurprisingly, the room was packed full. The two of us looked not at all out of place. But a more detailed demographic might have put us in the minority. We’re both physicians at Triangle-area hospitals, both of us involved in trauma-related fields. We both see the horrific effects of very many guns in North Carolina. We both support legislation that would put forth reasonable efforts to curb gun violence. And we both voted for Barack Obama – twice.


  1. Thanks! I went and commented. Sheesh!

  2. Heh, the good ol doctor knows best hit piece. Say Doc, how many kids died last year due to medical malpractice or just medical mistakes? I'm guess a damn site more than did to guns.

    1. Excellent point. Where is Mayberry? What happened to my father's time when all he wanted on his tombstone was "A Country Doctor"?
