Frank N Stein: Saiga410: Just a simple progression of removing restrictions until you run into a problem.  We have allowed carry with training and removed some location restrictions without any major problems...  If this causes problems we can assume we have found the floor.  If no problems then we can go even farther.

Alaska was awesome in regards to concealed carry. Coming from Illinois to a place with constitutional carry was great. Same with open carry. Though I rarely concealed carry, there were quite a few times where I went for a hike with my bear gun, then stopped at a place to grab a bite to eat or something.

See? and this is why gun advocates need to realize that different states have different legitimate interests in firearm restriction.  Alaska is the least populated and largest state in the union, a place where being attacked by bears while going about your daily activities is not all that unlikely.   Carrying a gun is a prudent thing for many residents.   The same rules don;t really apply to say a multi-story apartment in Chicago where even an accidental discharge is likely to hit and injure somebody and being attacked by bears is really only likely on North Halstead.

TonnageVT: Ideally, evolution would happen and the idiots will shoot themselves.

technically speaking evolution would only ensure the most capable shots survive which would probably be linked to aggression and psychopathy

Lord_Baull: We need training to operate a backhoe. We need training to drive a car. We need training to swing a bat. We need training to use a computer. We need training to even friggin operate a cash register.

But to carry a tool that can easily cause the death of another individual through misuse? Meh.

But those are not CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!!! Or something...

The Third Man: I think the internet would be a whole lot better if we actually did require training before someone was allowed to use a computer.

At least require a permit to carry CAPS-LOCK

Well, I see SC is taking its claim as the national capital of "Hold my beer and watch this," seriously.

TwistedIvory: So, very similar to the legislation that Arizona has? Because let me tell you, since that law went into effect three years ago it has been nothing but bloodbaths in the streets.

Oh wait, no, the opposite of that.

Really? Not a lot of rest home shootings, you say?

I can understand everyone arming themselves, though, what with all those Mexican entering the country illegally just to decapitate people.

When I read stories like this, I'm reminded of old Westerns where lawless towns were cleaned up and made safe for citizens to walk down the street without wearing a gun. In retrospect, I now see how very silly that idea was. Thoroughly and utterly unprogressive.
