    We have the right to be safe from people who believe they must carry a gun everywhere they go. That in itself is most certainly a form of mental illness.

    I would really like to see an end to "concealed carry". If some nut believes he/she/it must carry a gun, then the rest of us have the right to know that.

    Think about it.

    Say you're in a restaurant, the library, school, church, wherever - wouldn't it be nice to know if you're sharing your space with one of these froot loops?

    It would give you the choice to take your family to a safe place.

    Who would object to that?

    I can't think of a recent incident or any incident where a person with CC permit responded in a manner that threatened others.

    I am not a gun owner and realize I would probably never be able to use a gun properly in a situation where it might be required--but from the many discussions it seems gun owners are highly responsible and ethical. I am not really concerned about that.

    Truthfully, it seems like a very small percentage of citizens abuse guns.

    Once again I plan to 'listen and learn' --a ban on assault weapons doesn't seem unreasonable.

    Actually it happens almost every day. There are more than 30 murders every day and most of the murderers do hide the fact they have a gun right up until they use it.

    But, whether or not a ccw plans to kill or rob or if he/she is one of these nutters who think they're gonna be Mighty Mouse and swoop in to save the day, which they don't actually do but they DO brag about what they plan to do, which makes them very dangerous people to sit next to at the cafe ...

    Shouldn't I have the choice to NOT be there when they go off?

    I'm not saying they can't carry their gun. I'm just saying I have the right to know if there's a froot loop having a hamburger next to me.

    WHAT is objectionable about that?

    IOW, you can't argue against my right to know there is someone sitting nest to me who is carrying a gun.

    The whole idea of ccw is sneaky and dishonest.

    If you have nothing to feel sorry for, feel guilty for, then why not let those around you know you have a gun?

    If you have that right, then why shouldn't I have the right to know you are there?

    Just once, drop the baby name calling and just take part in a conversation.

    Just one question dear lady: What proof do you have that MOST of the murders are committed by those with concealed weapons permits? My research shows the very opposite; that those with permits are responsible gun owners who have no criminal agenda. It's those who possess guns illegally that are causing most of the problems.

    I am patiently awaiting an answer I know will never come.

    As for me, I don't care if those around me know I am armed; in fact, I prefer it. I would much rather have someone respect the fact that I am armed rather than to assume that I am not and try to cause me harm. If you want me to wear a sign around my neck saying I am armed, I can live with that. I don't mind giving illegal gun owners and other thugs fair warning.

    But that's just me.

    Your paranoia is a serious sign of mental illness, I believe you need to speak to a counselor.
    Remember: Paranoia strikes deep Into your life it will creep It starts when you're always afraid......

    The problem with that is: how in the hell would anyone be able to know who has a permit and who doesn't (of course criminals will not bother applying for a permit). I suppose one would be required to wear a shirt that says "I am armed," but this is ridiculous considering that there are many places even someone with a permit cannot go. I can carry concealed, but in the state of Florida if a wear a shirt that says "I am armed" and go onto a school grounds or in a bar or to a sporting event or a number of other places I would expect to be in a lot of trouble.

    So, dear lady, how do YOU propose the average citizen be informed who is lawfully armed, who is unlawfully armed, and who is unarmed. Do you have a clue how this can be accomplished? Besides how in God's name could anyone know those who are unlawfully armed since they not inclined to advertise their criminal possession? I suggest that you have a good idea in principle; but one which is entirely unworkable in the real world.

    My dearest sweetest lady, you aer worried about those with concealed weapons permits. I would strongly suggest you be a lot more concerned with those gun-carrying thugs who do not have such permits. Unfortunately, you will not know who they are until after the shots are fired. Hopefully there will be a decent, law abiding gun carrier around to protect your well-rounded anti-gun derriere.

    Five words: Get fucking real, old gal.
