The history of "gun control" and "permitting" is a history of racism and the desire to disarm free blacks. All "may issue" systems descend from that legacy of bigotry and oppression.
"Libertarian alert. More righteous indignation from people who think that covering our eyes and plugging our ears and singing la, la, la, la is a national defense strategy." You have pegged the precise reason why, despite my small l libertarian inclinations I am not a Libertarian and can never bring myself to vote for one. It only takes one side to start a war. And the best way to ensure that the aggressively inclined do just that is to invite attack through the appearance of weakness.
I like that card. Concealed carry permit holders have a lower crime rate than police officers -- only slightly greater than that of cloistered monks and nuns. Sane business owners should welcome us.
The sensible, common sense thing would be to use the same BAC rules for gun carry as for driving. My mother likes to play trivia in bars. Sometimes I join her. I almost never have even so much alcohol as a single glass of wine or hard cider. Why shouldn't I have my gun on me to protect us both when we come out and walk through the parking lot to our car? States that have loosened their rules to allow sober people to carry guns in places where other people are drinking have not seen any of the problems that the anti-gun hysterics predict.
Homosexuals should take note. Left-libs reveal what they REALLY think about you in comments like this. When they pretend otherwise they are just trying to use you to further their own goals.

Trigger warning? Oh. Drat. I thought you were going to start offering Basic Pistol classes.

It is noteworthy that the shooter's family called the police to check up on him instead of coming to his aid themselves.
Nothing strange about the timing. Its after planting, lambing, calving, etc., after the roads have dried out from spring thaw, and before the grain harvests begin. That makes it a time of year when people could take a few days for a celebration and do a little traveling without starving the next winter.
"An unwanted pregnancy changes a young woman’s life forever. None of us may judge women who face this challenge." Excuse me? And why, exactly, are we not permitted to ask, "If you didn't want a baby why didn't you keep your knees together, your feet on the floor, and your pants zipped?" We know what causes pregnancy. Its not a mystery that strikes out of nowhere. "Unwanted" pregnancies are the direct result of *gasp* engaging in the activity that causes pregnancy. When you choose to have sex you choose to have a baby. Even the best contraceptives fail between 5 times in 1000 and 1 time in 100 -- much better odds than buying a lottery ticket.
