It seams to me after talking to several gun enthusiasists, and a relative who is an officer in the state police, that a change needs to be made in the concealed weapons law. I own several guns and handguns for various reasons, the least of those reasons is because I can. The constitution is more than clear on that point. Just because you can do something doesn't mean that you should do it. It has been said that an armed public is a safe public and I would agree to a point. I would also like to make a suggestion to drop the "concealed" part. If guns are to be a deterant then they should be seen, so the criminal in question can see the weapon and perhaps not comit the crime in the first place, thus the deterant works. I feel by keeping them concealed you are trying to make the criminal think you are unarmed so you get the chance to use your weapon, thus not a deterant, and more of a consequence. The next reason for showing everyone that you are carrying is that it lets the rest of us decide for ourselves if we want to be around you when you are carrying. You have the right to carry, and I should also have the right to decide if I want to be around you. I realize that there is training involved in getting a permit, but my expierience in the military has shown me that training or not some people should never have a weapon. Last thought, for the people who like to push things, please don't. Every time a gun extremist does something stupid it makes the rest of us look bad. Like the guy in Detroit who took his 30.06 into the Taco Bell because he had every right to do so, then the police were called and things get out of hand. Ted Nugent good rock and roller, bad gun law spokesman. As a gun rights guy we should always think before we do or say anything about guns, and we need to start policing ourselves before the congress does it for us.
