    My vote if I had one is always was and always will be yes, even our founders said a free man should be armed at all times , and none of their original writings said a thing about getting the governments permission via a permit.

    I can see good and bad. All it takes is one hot head with a concealed weapon to cause a major problem. I for one don't want to go back to the wild wild west days. On the plus side not knowing if someone is packing or not may cause some to stop and think before taking action they may regret. Like I said when I took the class there was a couple (3) there that for sure didn't need to be packing for any reason. Those are the type one needs to worry about. Not just the book work but range work also they were bad with a capitol B. I left before the last one got up as I had seen enough with 2 others.

    I think you mean all it takes is a hot head (read: lunatic) with ANY weapon (read: bomb, firearm, knife, vehicle, poison,....) to cause a major problem.

    This has been the standard excuse most opponents of Constitutional carry have used in other states. Including the FOP. After the fact, there is no data to support their position.

    Note the states with the highest percentage of gun violence.

    And I would place a sizeable bet that those two in your class both passed. The concealed carry course was a joke. If you can get an instructor to be completely honest 95% never had a student fail. If we were to continue the course then we it should have been taken more seriously. Many of the students in the class I took had never fired there weapon prior to the class. And then after a 6 hour classroom course and a couple of hours on the range they were cleared to carry a concealed weapon? The course under the current format was worthless.

  8. He’s too stupid to think that up, Don Lemon told him some whack job could shoot up a crowd if we “allowed” people to be free so he ran with it. Dumb as an anvil.

    I agree the instructor I had made a statement his 8 year old daughter could pass the written part of the test in front of the entire 25 people there. The range work was a joke also. Like you said some had never fired a handgun before in their life and it showed. Some seem to think the bigger the gun the better. I did the range work with a 22 cal 9 shot High Standard revolver. I figured be cheap and not burn up a bunch of expensive ammo to shoot at a target 15 or so foot away. And I watch a couple miss even that close more than one shot.

    Exactly. We've got this now...lunatics. And typically they've been going off in "gun safe" states (or gun safe sanctuaries--cities-- in states with a CCW) where the populace is disarmed and helpless.

    Curious...How many people that have attended and passed a current course are later convicted of crimes or misconduct in the use of their concealed weapon? I doubt it is statistically meaningful. Whether or not they have used a weapon in the past I bet its insignificant.
     
  15. Permits, required training, etc. are nothing more than unconstitutional attempts to deprive people of their 2nd Amendment right. Shall not be infringed is self explanatory.
