  •  There is absolutely nothing irrational about it. (7+ / 0-)

    Having been the victim of a gun crime, I find nothing irrational at all about a fear of people carrying a concealed firearm. I feel no safer knowing anyone I might bump into may be so armed. I don't believe for a hot second that every person with a CC permit is some benevolent John Wayne just waiting to save the day. I believe that people who carry a gun, concealed, are the ones with irrational fears about their fellow man, and that their weapon presents a very real danger for the people around them.

    We progressed past the old west. Guns are an incredible force multiplier. We should be afraid of them, and we should be rightfully wary about anyone who thinks it's necessary to conceal such a powerful weapon on their person at all times.
