RECENTLY ON TOL:

I own firearms, and am contemplating getting a concealed-carry permit. Concealed carry has a purpose, and that is for personal protection and security without visibility--it won't upset others. Open carry is a reasonable option, though perhaps not in heavily populated areas. As for knowing who's carrying... there are far and wide implications, for instance, is the one carrying a firearm a person who is being stalked over a long period of time? Does this person have very dangerous working conditions? It seems there may be a long, long list of reasons why concealed carry should remain as private information. I guarantee that those who want to outlaw guns will always argue against concealed carry or open carry. They will not have a very reasonable position in this discussion.
