    I have one... I also have Associates who think I'm crazy for giving the Gumbn't (Obama) that kind of info on me...

    And others who feel that all Guns are the problem.

    And still others who don't feel they need permission from the Gubmn't to Carry...

    Discuss.

    :)

    peace...

    Just renewed mine in October. Every five years in Virginia, $50.

    A cheap price to pay for personal security/peace of mind.

    No permit needed here. Carry at will - into police stations and banks if it suits your fancy.

    It's good to have the permit. I don't think that it's bad that they "have your info," I mean - when you were born you got a SS# and when you started working they started taking tabs on that sort of info (income/taxes) as well.

    Is it a private matter that you own a gun? You just posted it to a message board. Plus, it's weird to me if anyone finds that to be too "private" to reveal, prudish maybe.

    I think it's fucking corny when they don't allow concealed carry. People kill people.

    I also think it's okay that "permissions" are facilitated through at least SOME SORT OF Agency, because I (personally) wouldn't want people with Brain disorders and such to be walking around waving pistols in the public square, shit like that.

    You should be able to keep any personal weapon in your own home without the need for a complex permit or liscense. At most the state should be able to mandate some training to make sure you know gun ownership basics (the well regulated part).

    For concealed carry, I do understand the desire to be able to know who is carrying, and what they are carrying. To me the key is that a concealed carry law needs to be "shall issue", i.e. the state needs a real good reason to deny you a permit (felony conviction, or history of mental illnessfor example), as opposed to "may issue", where the can come up with any bullshit excuse to deny you a permit.

    To get a gun liscense and buy guns legally in my state the govt must know you own guns, hence the liscense and background check each time you try to buy one.

    I don't see the big deal in the govt knowing I have a gun and I also think the 2nd ammendment guarantees my right to carry a gun regardless of anything congress, the president, or anyone else says.

    I don't have a problem with Concealed carry or gun ownership in general. I think people overplay their odds of "getting killed" by another person... but hey... it does happen.

    And if they are coming for Guns... It ain't gonna matter if you have a CC...

    It's like the Gold Hoarders...

    What are you gonna do with all that Gold, especially if it's not Actual Gold, in Bartertown?...

    You gonna Die and your Gold is going to someone else while your Wife and Children are Raped and Murdered.

    :)

    peace...
