I'm glad more people are carrying.

I want to get a concealed carry myself, just haven't gotten around to it.
Statistically one is more likely to catch a stray bullet in a public place than be killed by an Islamic terrorist. We spend a fortune trying to prevent a terrorist attack.

I've read about a few places in which people with guns reserve the right to limit the freedoms of others, who are not allowed firearms.

While none of them are purported to be first world nations that are all rated as having more freedoms than yours. Go figure.

In most countries they would not be allowed to protect themselves.

I know who carry either served or have used a gun for hunting since they were in elementary school. It is leftists that don't want young people trained on gun safety.

Then push the government to enforce the current 22,000 gun laws. Almost every mass shooter has been turned in BEFORE they killed anyone. The authorities have refused to investigate. So what good is another law?
