You really think that some guy is planning to shoot up a bunch of people, so he goes out and gets his concealed carry permit first? Hell no, he just goes and shoots a bunch of people. I really don't understand how people think that by making it illegal to do "xxxxx" it will stop criminals from doing "xxxxxx". Last time i checked, killing people is illegal, so why are they still doing it since its illegal
I really don't want to turn this into a political debate but +1. I spent 27 years living (born and raised) in the City of Chicago where up until a year ago it was illegal to own a handgun, (still no CC) yet they are the murder capital of the country with the majority of those murders committed by handgun violence. Criminals are criminals because they don't follow the law...
