Yet as a whole, they [CCW holders] have fewer brushes with the law than the general population.
I'll agree with you in that you really have to be a true gunloon to think that CCW holders never violate any law, but what I was saying was that CCW holders are one of the least problematic.
What seems to be forgotten that in order to qualify for a CCW, in most states, is that the applicant isn't a felon. It essentially means that one can actually have a pretty long and distinguished criminal record but so long as one isn't a convicted felon--you're good to go.
That's a pretty low bar.
