They should be able to keep it in their places of abode, their modes of transportation, and on their bodies...just as long as it/they are in view of those around them. If you are going to have a firearm, put it where you can see it, use it, wear it, or carry it without interference from police. Those places, e.g., schools, churches, banks, and bars where weapons may be frowned upon, should have a check booth/area where you could leave and retrieve your weapon when you leave, manned by a responsible person.

Our event provided a forum for black leaders from the world of politics and public policy in Washington, from the business community, from academia, and from the clergy to express their deep concern about efforts currently underway to limit our God-given and constitutional individual right of self-defense.

Why would an organization like CURE, whose mission focuses on...
