Maybe he didn't leave Ky on his own accord. Perhaps he was kicked out.

I would agree. We didn't want him anyway.

Does anybody else actually see any problem with this what-so-ever? I dont see how the successful capture and shooting of a criminal in any way support his argument.

What a Numpty!

DJ's change stations like my kid changes diapers. It's probably one of the few offers he had.

Find out which businesses advertise on his show. Write the local businesses letters and let them know of your displeasure of them advertising on that particular show.

If you have a group like VACDL in Ohio, get them involved in the letter writing campaign as well.

Nothing says "Screw You" like a local business man calling the station to complain about a host.

Guys, I sent Bob an email yesterday. This morning he sent me one back that says he will read it and respond to it on the air.
I wish I could pick up his station.
If anyone listens to it, post an update as to what he says!

Subject: Anti gun remarks you've made.

Bob, My name is Bill and I wanted to comment on you commentary. A couple of things I've read that you've said on the radio:

1. "It scares me to hear that you've been raised with firearms. Nothing scares me more than seeing a photo of a 7 year-old kid with his first deer. To give a child the power of a rifle..."

If you're so scared of firearms, then my advice to you is to stay away from them. Also, a 7 y.o. with his or her first deer is nothing new. I thought you might know that since you used to live in Kentucky. But more important, the way you said it makes it sound like we are letting 7 year olds go out on their own and hunt, unsupervised. This is not the case. Who in their right mind would let a child go out into the wilderness on their own? They are supervised, very well, by an experienced hunter. But what would you know, you're a d.j. who brags on the fact that you've never picked up a hand gun.

2. "I fear there'll be road rage and bar fights ending in tradgedy." I would have to assume you made this comment in regards to a Concealed Carry Law. Why would armed citizenery be advocating road rage and killing sprees in bars? Fact: most folks who would carry a weapon concealed already have a weapon in their cars / trucks where legal to do so. Fact, it's against the law to carry concealed into such establishments that serve liquor by the drink. Fact. You obviously don't know what you are talking about but have the power of a microphone and a 100,000 watt radio station at your disposal to spread falsehoods and assumptions that you've made, all on your own.

Another fact is the purpose of a Concealed Carry Law (ccw). It's a known fact that criminals will be armed, with whatever weapon they choose, they ignore any laws they want. The sole purpose for a CCW is that a law abiding citizen can carry a weapon of their choice and not break the law. Imagine a law abiding gun owner, like myself, who travels a lot at odd times of the night. I work swing shifts at a factory and have 15 miles to drive, I live in a rural area. What's so wrong about me wanting to put my pistol in a holster and put on a jacket? Is that so wrong? What is the danger? Under your imagination, you think I'm going to get into a gun fight on my way to work! My wife works at the same place and travels often by herself, the same route and same times of night. Now, what if she breaks down? Do I want to place her safety in her cell phone and the police? The nearest law enforcement is 15 miles away, at a speed (if they could be dispatched at the exact time of need) would be roughly 15 minutes. Now a hell of a lot can happen in 15 minutes, and I'm not letting my wife depend upon cell phone service and law enforcement that is a quarter hour away.
Fact. The mere presence of a firearm will deter most crimes before they are committed. Put yourself in the "bad guy's" shoes. If preying upon a stranded woman motorist, and you see a firearm in her possesion, are you going to go through with the crime? Probably not. So, what's so wrong about my wife having the means to protect herself? NOTHING. You Sir, have the right to state your opinions, it's in the Constitution. I also have the right to bear arms, it's in the Constitution as well, or have you not read it?
