Re: 2011 Senate Bill 59 (Move CPL issuance to Secretary of State )  by mick1001 on December 20, 2012 

Assaults in the schools could maybe be stopped.  Gun free zones are prime targets for mad men.  All gun free zones send a message that says we are satting ducks. My classes for my CLP lead by the county sheriff said these gun free zones you shouldn't go to these places. Avode them as offen as you can. 


I see the schools as one of these places and the chruch I attend weekly I go because I feel the need to attend.  But offen think I'm a duck waiting for that hunter.

That really is silly thinking. You realize that right now everyone knows that people can't have guns in those locations. That's what we call common knowledge. When it becomes common knowledge (I.E once news media picks up that this bill has passed) that people CAN carry in those locations, they cease being common targets.
Not everyone has to carry, all it takes is knowledge that people may be carrying. The Oregon shooter at the mall last week was confronted with a CPL holder and shot himself shortly thereafter.

The argument that allowing the carrying of concealed weapons will prevent criminals from shooting innocent people is pretty specious one. If the weapon is concealed, who;s to know who has a weapon? A bit of silly thinking. To really make it work, it should be required that eveyone carry a concealed weapon. Then we can be fearful of everyone.

And for the sword and crossbow enthusiast, they are a lot tougher to conceal.

Just saying......
