If you are 21 years old you can buy a bottle of 100 Proof Whiskey get into a 400 HP sedan and drive thru a Walmart parking lot. No training required.

Most of these people that have new Concealed Permits don't realize how much effort it takes to CC. My brother has never carried. He bought a 1911 for an EDC. The thing is under the seat of his truck. He was trying to trade that pea shooter for my blackhawk. I told him he bumped his head. I bet lots of new CC holders are doing exactly the same thing.

I guess that automatically makes me an irresponsible gun owner? There are people out there with not so great credit that are responsible. Should i be prevented from owning a firearm because i made a mistake when i was 19 and financed something i ended up not being able to afford after i got laid off?

So far as I can tell, NYPD has shot more innocent bystanders in the last year than all concealed carry permit holders combined.

An armed society is a polite society. This is not about making every citizen a Texas Ranger. The CCW ups the risk for the bad guys. In states where there are concealed weapons among the population the BG is now at risk.
