I know many may see this as the end of the world but I believe Jefferson said it best, “Laws against the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither disposed nor inclined toward violence.”
All this law is doing is allowing those who already carry concealed firearms to continue to do so in spaces where they would otherwise be prohibited. The man who gets his permit is not the person you should fear. A person can violate the law and carry anyway. The person who scares me is the one who carries in violation of the law. I know many who carry every day, and nothing happens. Some people don’t like the idea of firearms for self defense and I believe this stems from a lack of personal responsibility. Often they argue you can call the police to save you. They cannot seem to fathom why someone would take the responsibility to defend themselves.
Limiting the carrying of licensed permit holders does nothing but disarm people who want nothing more than to not be cattle. My views of college campuses currently is that they are giant fields of cattle ripe for the picking. Interesting tidbit though, from talking to many students, some are carrying any way. The reason behind it is, until they need it, no one has a clue. I don’t as I am a law abiding citizen but this just shows how dumb and futile ban’s are.
Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
