Question Of The Week, 4/9/06

Good morning. I got the idea for this weeks question from the Lincoln Journal Star. Nebraska legislators recently passed a concealed carry bill. The Lincoln Journal Star is now asking if there are places a permit holder should not be allowed to carry their weapon. OK what do you think. You have done every thing required to get your concealed carry permit. This weeks Question Of The Week is. Do you think there are places a concealed carry permit holder should not be allowed to carry their weapon? Where would this places be? I'll post my answer in the Comment Section Monday night.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

David, this is an easy one. A CCW holder should be able to carry their weapon....

ANYWHERE, except for on private property where it is clearly posted that it is NOT okay to carry there.

Bet you're not surprised I said that, are you? ;-)

In Fairfax County, Virginia, a CCW holder cannot carry in a government building or on government property. Schools and the bike path are included in that restriction. I have pretty much quit using the bike path because of that restriction.

Merchants who are armed here in Northern Virginia don't get robbed as often. Every coin dealer has the license to carry concealed.

Any private business/property that does not want to have guns should be allowed to say no guns. I would also say that in most any government buildings and schools people should have to have permission to carry a gun, but anywhere else you should be free to carry guns as long as you don't try and harm others.

I almost forgot to answer this weeks question, I want to thank all of you for stopping by. To be honest I don't like the signs that tell you they can't be carried on private property. I keeping thinking that comment about the rights of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed means by anyone. But I guess a man's home/private property is his castle. I really have a problem with the sign on the guard shack at work no weapons allowed on the premises. I keep thinking about all the past work place shootings we have heard about (none where I work so far). If someone would have had a firearm in their vehicle could they have retrieved it and saved lives? We'll never know. When you get right down to it I don't think there is a place where a CCW holder should not be allowed to carry because there is not a place that we can be sure thugs and thieves will never attack.

God Bless America. God Save The Republic.

A bit late, but better than never...

I do think there are places that a concealed weapon should not be allowed. The first one that comes to mind is a court house. Another would be the state capital. A school would be another.

I guess I'll just go with government buildings there.

The only place I think that the right of the People to keep and bear arms should be infringed is on private property where the property-owner does not grant a general license for the public to enter.

Always on watch: Bike paths? I wonder how meticulous the police are at patrolling there...? I can see the headline now -- SWAT officer shot bicyclist dead on suspicion of carrying weapon. (I am, of course, referring to this story).

Private property, and any place where you might get drunk, unless you are the designated driver.

For the same reasons.

I once had a very hairy time in a bar, talking down a drunk who said he had a concealed gun. I had a concealed knife, and I wasn't drunk.

Drunk people do stupid things, like bragging about carrying weapons and that it might be fun to shoot up a bar.

To me, while the 2nd is an individual right, it's an individual right in service to a responsiblity that's damn meaningless if it's not collective.

So, the answer is really this - you carry just like a cop. You carry "on duty" and off duty, you thank your lucky stars you can wear an elastic waistband.
