wtmoore, you obviously know little to nothing of which you speak. In the last 25 years the number of states the issue gun permits has gone from around a dozen to about 48 with all but about 8 that have shall issue laws. And even with all of the Libs wringing their hands over the return to the "Old West" and a "Wyatt Earp" syndrome, this has nowhere materialized. In actuality, violent crime has significantly reduced. Unlike Britain, where armed crime has dramatically escalated. Especially armed Home Invasions.
