Taylor Woolrich’s op-ed at Fox News describes what it is like to be stalked, lots of other media coverage

UPDATE: Buzzfeed and others mischaracterize what happened with Taylor Woolrich’s op-ed.  See discussion here.

ORIGINAL: This is some of the news coverage that was obtained from the Students for Concealed Carry Convention that the Crime Prevention Research Center organized and funded.  Taylor Woolrich has a very powerful op-ed at Fox News that starts this way:

Teachers in Missouri getting training to carry guns

The CBS News piece buys into the false Bloomberg claim that these types of shootings are becoming more of a threat and it doesn’t address why the concerns over teachers carrying is misplaced, but it is still a useful piece.
