Gun rights controversy puts spotlight on pro-gun sheriff, television station

The current ongoing controversy concerning the gun rights of ordinary citizens, as protected by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, has placed the spotlight on a pro-gun sheriff and a television station that appears to be antagonistic to his views. The station implied Tuesday in a special report that the sheriff's well-known views on guns is partly to blame for a spike in murders.

WSPA-TV, which is the CBS affiliate in the Greenville-Spartanburg region of South Carolina, did a story Tuesday about the Obama administration's push for gun control. The report focused on the local angle, however, when the reporter interviewed Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright and implied by his questions that the sheriff is at least partially to blame for a local spike in murders due to his oft-repeated advice to citizens that they apply and get the training for carrying concealed guns for personal protection.

I just shot off a nasty email to both WSPA and Gordon Dill the reporter since WSPA is in my State.
