The New York Times, The Dallas Morning News, 31 October 2012 –

OKLAHOMA CITY — A new law will take effect Thursday in Oklahoma — anyone licensed to carry a concealed firearm can choose to carry a weapon out in the open, in a belt or shoulder holster, loaded or unloaded. And Bryan Hull and his friends – supporters of the Oklahoma Open Carry Association – could hardly wait.

Armed Citizen

From the NRA, August, 2012 – Just one week after being released from prison, Kiet Thanh Ly, 34, allegedly entered Smith’s Marketplace and purchased a kitchen knife. After leaving the store, Ly used the knife to senselessly stab a 30-year-old man multiple times in the abdomen. He then attacked a 45-year-old man who suffered cuts to his arms and head. Ly continued to threaten and chase people in the store’s parking lot until a 47-year-old man with a concealed-carry permit intervened. He was able to detain Ly until police arrived. Ly is being held on suspicion of assault and attempted murder. (The Salt Lake Tribune, Salt Lake City, UT, 4/28/12)

US District Court upholds right to conceal in Maryland

The Daily Caller, by Adam Jablonowski, March 6, 2012 –Maryland’s goal to control the amount of firearms carried by residents is unconstitutional, according to U.S. District Judge Benson Everette.

A decision in Woollard v. Sheridan on Monday made by Maryland’s U.S. District Court upholds that the Second Amendment “right to bear arms is not limited to the home.” Therefore, Maryland citizens should not be required to submit a “good and substantial reason” when applying for a concealed carry permit.

A Tale Of Two Gun Owners

From The National Rifle Association, by David Burnett, January 2012 –Average Right-to-Carry permit holders will load or unload their handgun thousands of times over their lifespan. The guns tucked discretely inside waistbands, behind car seats and inside purses will rarely see action outside of the practice range, and the owners carefully observe the laws regarding their use and possession.

Yet tucked away in the corner of each armed citizen’s mind is the possibility of a day when that seldom-used firearm becomes the only lifeline to survival. Continue reading →

Armed Citizens

from the American Rifleman (NRA) –

Seeking help following an assault at the hands of her boyfriend, a woman phoned her parents. They quickly picked her up and brought her to their home, calmed their terrified daughter and she went to sleep. Then a banging at the door arose—the boyfriend had found her hiding place. The parents would not answer, so the suspect kicked in the door and began assaulting them. Continue reading →

The Unconcealed Truth About Carrying Guns

“Experience is a dear teacher,” said Benjamin Franklin, “but fools will learn at no other.” Give some credit to fools: At least they eventually learn from experience. What would Franklin say about people who don’t?

By that, I refer to gun control advocates alarmed that the Illinois legislature may vote to let licensed individuals carry concealed handguns. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence calls the measure “dangerous.” Kristen Rand of the Violence Policy Center says that it would lead to Tucson-style mass shootings as well as the killing of police.

But concealed-carry, as it is known, is not a radical notion in most of the country. Thirty-seven “shall-issue” states grant permits to carry to anyone meeting certain requirements, and 48 allow citizens to carry guns under some circumstances. The two holdouts? Wisconsin, where Republican Gov. Scott Walker has endorsed the idea, and Illinois, where Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn has not. Continue reading →
