As for me, every state has idiots and to think otherwise is idiotic in and of itself. Anyone who thinks we, or anyone in any state, needs to continue licking boots and getting a piece of paper to be "allowed" to carry has not read the 2nd A, or at least does NOT fully support the idea behind it regardless of how eloquent the rebuke to this post might be...
1)"When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty." -Thomas Jefferson.
2)"Imagine how gun control might be stomped if GOA or SAF had the (compromising) NRA's 4 million members!" -Me. http://jpfo.org/filegen-n-z/nraletter.htm
I have never been to Vermont but I don't think there are as many nimrods there as in SC and our infamous I-95 corridor. As for the idiots hurting themselves with their guns I am not concerned about that at all but I am concerned about them hurting me while exercising their 2A right.
I spent some time up in Fairfax, VA a while back and as bad as some people try to make that area sound I told my wife on the way home that the culture their is so much different that around where we live that it is impossible for someone living in that area to understand some of our complaints about how people act. Whether it is socio-economic or just the historical culture it is very hard for someone who is totally unfamiliar with a certain area to understand the problems of that area. This is just one of the things that our federal government screws up continually trying to make everyone the same and doing away with states rights. No better example of this is that "no child left behind" mess, the mainstreaming of the handicapped, and doing away with allowing classes to be segregated by student abilities that has totally screwed up any hope of our educational system working.
As a slippery-slope believer and wondering who is to judge, I am all in favor of Constitutional carry.
The Founders Got It Right - Back To The Constitution

I am for less restrictions with a modicum of common sense added. I think a quick call to NICS is not stepping on personal freedoms and permit instantly issued along the lines of a fishing permit good for 4-5 years to eliminate the people that obviously do not need to carry. Otherwise straw perchases would increase. John Smith buys his gun and uncle Bubba just sticks it in his waist to go buy some beer. Have you checked out some of the people at Walmart?
