Recently the staff at the Pope-Civitas Institute became concerned that some were confusing their group with an unrelated media company known as Civitas Media — which had supposedly been seeking public  records related to individuals with licenses to carry concealed weapons.

As it turns out, the story about Civitas Media was unfounded, but that didn’t stop the Pope-Civitas folks from sending out a fundraising letter last Friday featuring this photo of staff members demonstrating their support for guns and “concealed-carry.”   The photo is also posted on the Pope-Civitas website (which you can view by clicking  here).

Call me old-fashioned, but I find both of the following stories sobering and depressing.

#1 – Protesters at the national political conventions this summer may well be armed to the teeth with concealed weapons.

#2- A Wake County School Board member running for State Auditor (that appears to be her on the left — the photo is from the Facebook page promoting the event)  thinks it’s a good idea to have a “shooting range fundraiser.”
