Yes, having the ability to carry a handgun concealed goes hand in hand with the idea of self preservation. Being able to legally carry concealed gives law abiding citizens the ability to handle attempts on their life effectively, even when the attacker is of larger stature because handguns do not require brute strength to operate. Most people are capable of operating a handgun despite their size, and a gun is a great equalizer against a larger assailant. Studies have shown that areas in which concealed carry is outlawed are less safe than areas in which concealed carry is encouraged. In addition, studies have shown that in a majority of defensive gun use situations, no shots are fired because the display of a handgun is enough to scare off a potential criminal.
People have a right to guns in the US: this is a fact that has been constantly upheld over the centuries of the country and is favored by a majority of Americans. More importantly, it has basis in the Constitution - something that, if people they don't like, they can amend.
Yes, I agree with the recent verdict on concealed carry laws from California's 9th circuit court, because the court's ruling upheld the people's right to bear arms, as stated in the second amendment. The court was very brave in making what was likely an unpopular decision in California in deciding that the law violated the second amendment.
The verdict on concealed carry laws from California's 9th circuit court will make it better for gun owners and allow for the legislation of laws that will allow for concealed carry permit for citizens of california. This is one step closer to the relaxation of california strict gun control laws which prohibit concealed carry.
Yes, I agree with the recent verdict on concealed carry laws from California's 9th circuit court. The criminals sure are not respecting that law, and all it did was put law abiding citizens at a disadvantage. Maybe if more people assume that a gun could end up in play, they might be a lot more civil.
