    I agree with this decision. Requiring a permit has just never made any logical sense to me because someone who is intentionally going to go out and use a gun to harm somebody is going to carry it on them anyway regardless of what the law says. I think carry laws just prevent more people from being able to defend themselves.

    I disagree with this decision. The day we start chipping away at the law because "criminals do it anyway, so what's the point" is the thin end of the wedge.

    I'm all for CCW but there should be background checks, training, and permitting.

    Arizona is the capital of home invasions and kidnappings by the illegal drug cartels.. arm yourself. protect youself,,, no permit necessary. They have the castle doctrine in Arizona? get an oooooozie, that's what the criminals have. no sense being out gunned.

    Yikes, tread softly while in Arizona. Can one imagine everyone armed? What lunacy, and we wonder why so many die unnecessarily from handguns in America. Anyone butts in line or bumps into you make sure they're not armed if you speak up, or you could just shoot them first.

    I'm on the fence on this one. I think it's a place to place thing. It seems to work well in Vermont - but I doubt it would work in NYC.

    So I guess we'll see.

    I think it's a good thing. Everyone would be more polite if they thought anyone else might be armed.

    It is the law that has chipped away at our Constitutional right. Chipping away at this law restores that right.

    Are there high bouts of gun related crime in Alaska in Vermont? When I think of high crime regions of the country those two states don't exactly come to mind.
