I think only some people because some people might use guns for bad purposes and i also think that people with bad records should not be able to have a weapon. People should be able to have weapons but not in public places like library or stores and schools. Only people with clear records or retired cops or people that where in the military.
Without any guns, people could walk into an un-armed house and severely injure anyone because they werent prepared. Think about it, if someone walked into your house carrying a gun, and you had nothing other than a bat to defend your self with nothing good is going to happen. Even worse if a guy was pointing a gun at your childs head and you had only a bat to use, it wouldnt end very well.. We need guns for everyones protection!
Drugs are illegal, but people still obtain them and use them. If you take away the constitutional right to carry firearms, the only people it will hurt are the good law-abiding citizens. The government can't ensure everybody's protection... Sometimes you have to look out for yourself. Many robberies and rapes could be prevented just by flashing a handgun. Most of the time the criminal will retreat. So yes, people should have the right to carry hidden weapons.
I certainly believe that responsible, law abiding citizens in the United States should carry concealed weapons. Not only does it give you a sense of security, but I honestly believe that if more people carried concealed weapons that it would make criminals think twice before approaching people in a hostile manner.
Permits can be issued for concealed weapons use as many states do today. The right to bear arms is guaranteed by the Second Amendment, including carrying a concealed weapon. No system is perfect, but Americans have the right to carry weapons. Businesses and government agencies should have the right to restrict concealed weapon use on their premises.
If you are doing things the right way and you do not have problems with the law than it should be your choice in weather you can carry a weapon or not. I think that it is a good idea to check the people out that are getting the permits but they should be able to carry them.
Why would it not be right for me to carry a weapon, but a police officer whom society deems to be a good person can? I mean do you truly believe that every cop out there is a good person? Just by speaking with some I can tell how corrupt in power they are, only because of their privileges to incriminate people. Yes it will help other criminals second guess themselves but I feel that it is anyones right to carry a weapon.
The second amendment guarantees the right to bear arms. So, that's enough reason as to why we should be able to carry concealed handguns. It will make criminals second guess themselves, and the government can't guarantee every citizen's safety. Allowing people to carry concealed handguns should be allowed in the United States.
Yes people should because in one of the many rules of guns is it is YOUR responsibility and NOT the guns or the victims fault. Also you need to be prepared to kill someone they come hand in hand guns have save quadruple the lives they have saved. I personally want a gun if I get attacked and not a pool noodle.
This world has come to innocent adults and children losing their lives. People who carry for the werong reasons of shooting to kill are getting away with it! Conceal & carry allows people like myself to be properly trained when using the weapon and shoot to bring down, not kill. Had some victims been able to carry and defend themselves the perp would be in custody & victim themselves or friend would still have their life.
People should not be allowed because concealed weapons cause more consequences than good. Think about the children, what are you teaching them, that the world is not safe and you should carry a weapon around to protect yourself in stead of defending yourself in a less violent manner. That's just as bad as letting them play the knife game. Also, children these days are sneaky, they find ways to everything. So if you try to hide the weapon they will find it and miss around with it. Also what is you accidentally shoot someone. All im saying is if you want to carry an armed weapon be my guest because the world now is falling into ruins, but be safe about it.
On Average 33 gun homicides occurred each day from 2005 through 2010. More than 1100 people are killed each year in gun accidents. Since 1960, more Americans have been murdered by guns than were killed in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. So why is there a need to carry a concealed weapon look how many incidents have happened due to this cause.
There is no reason for concealed weapons. Most attacks catch victims by surprise anyway. It is very difficult for someone being attacked to pull out their handgun. Anyway, it is fighting violence with violence. It is just unnecessary in my opinion. The few irresponsible people ruin it for everyone else. You can't trust everyone; that would be naive.
They should not because it may make you feel safe but the people around you may not feel safe they may feel threatened. It makes it difficult for the police to tell who is bad and who is good. They should just leave it to people that are trained like the police not to somebody that's not trained.
School shootings happen because people have the right the bear arms what if a teacher has a gun in there desk and the kids know about it and they shoot up a school because of that, also what if people want to rape people adn they have a gun they could do it a lot easier
If someone were to get robbed in the middle of the night don't they have the right to defend their own person? Robbing a bank would be really difficult if the people in the bank were armed. Also the same thing goes for any public place. Nobody has even heard of a shooting in a gun show has they? That's because everybody is armed!
The background check for concealed carry seems useless to me. You have to be an adult, which is fine, but the criminal part is what gets me. Its not like you're born bad. Carrying a weapon just makes it easier for anyone not in their right mind or not thinking rationally to hurt someone whenever they feel like it
Civilised people in a free society should interact openly and with candour. Concealing a weapon as you enter a social situation is disruptive of trust and good will. People may be polite and law abiding out of fear of what others will do to them, but this us not the same as mutual respect. Mutual fear becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, making violence more likely.
Obtaining a concealed weapon is increasing the number of unintended injuries which are also including young children. Some of the children involved are as young as four years old. Head lines on new articles are showing young children getting a hold of their parents firearms that happen to be in their reach and unaware of how dangerous the "toy" they are playing with really is they shoot and kill their playmate or family member.
Why would you want to put yourself at risk. If you carry a concealed handgun you are likely to be injured by it. You might think that you are protecting yourself but the scary truth is that you are putting other people at risk of an injury or even death. Do want to have a death on your conscience.
