A recent article in Tennessee notes that concealed carry permits are on the rise as more than 40,000 people in Shelby County are carrying guns. The article also admits that the gun owner "stereotypes" don't apply to these citizens. Cam Edwards speaks with Tom Givens, General Manager of Range Master, a shooting and instruction facility in Memphis, Tennessee. Givens says that rather than the "beer-swilling rednecks they were expecting, 40% of his students are female, 50% are upper-middle class, only 25% were "blue collar," and about 18% were under 30 years of age. Givens says they train 2,000 to 2,500 new students a year at his facility alone. Originally aired 2/7/2011.
