    Wow…what a load of non-sense…

    Let’s see
    #1 — In states where guns are allowed:
    Well, that would be all 50 states and the District of Columbia. And in fact, in all 50 states, not only are guns allowed, it is a right to keep and bear arms. Every state in the union has some form of Carry for the residents of that state. Either with or without a permit.

    #2 — The Law –
    Guess you’ve never heard of Sir Robert Peel who develop the Principles of Policing
    PRINCIPLE 7 “Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence

    The police are only part of the law enforcement process; each and every person is responsible for their own safety. The law codifies the right of the people to use force, even deadly force to protect themselves, their family, others and their property.

    So I would ask, given the corruption (see any major city), the tendency for cops to protect themselves (See Rodney King Riots), abandoning their jobs (see Hurricane Katrina) — why do you want the law enforcement to have a monopoly of force?

    #3 Folks licensed for need —
    Amazing how few other rights are ‘licensed’. Here you are being an unlicensed journalist (freedom of the press/speech), probably have unlicensed assemblies (two or more people), etc, and yet you call for the licensing of one right.

    Second part — I don’t think it is called the Bill of “NEEDS” is it? But the Bill of Rights. It spells out, supported by several Supreme Court Decisions the people have a right to keep and bear arms. Given also that the courts have ruled, historically and recently, that something as simple as a photo id is unconstitutional; isn’t it more likely that firearm related licenses are going to be overturned eventually?

    #4 Bully you?
    Seriously. We want you to go armed or not at your decision. Yet all too often anti-rights cultists are calling for the restriction of our rights. Demanding we accommodate not only your rights but feelings “I wanna feel safe”. Who is bullying whom?
    Don’t want a firearm, don’t buy one. Just stop trying to interfere with my ability to buy and carry firearms. Deal?

    #5 It is fear that drives us —
    Again this is ludicrous. I go where I want, when I want and don’t ask for anyone to stop other people from exercising their rights. Yet anti-rights cultists are so fearful they want to force — ironically using firearms of the government — every one to be unarmed.

    Maybe there is something to that scripture about a plank in your own eye before worrying about the mote in others, eh.

    Bob S.
