There is no way that by giving law abiding citizens a gun is a bad thing. Norway gives each family an AK-47 and that allows them to protect themselves. There is no way that their extremely low gun violence rates is due to anything else besides more guns in the hands of citizens.
Our conceal and carry laws are appropriate. We need them in order to defend ourselves and the ones we care about in case of a great emergency where lethal force is necessary. We require enough education to the point that you are so well trained in every aspect of your weapon.
I firmly believe that concealed carry laws should be broader so that concealed carry is legal in every state. Random shootings are much less likely to occur if would be criminals are afraid that someone in the vicinity may themselves be carrying a gun. Concealed carry helps out law abiding citizens.
