Default Insanity

I live in New Jersey where it is almost impossible to get a carry permit. The State acknowledges my right to protect myself Two specific examples are testament to the lunacy.
1. If I go to a range to shoot when I leave I carry a bag with hand guns and ammo separate. Therefore if a bad guy wants a gun this would be a good place to lie in wait. Having a gun and not be able to use it exposes me and allows a bad guy the ability to become armed
2. If I'm away from home. When I return and once inside I find that the house has been broken into and the bad guys are still there and my guns are locked in another part of the house the State's gun laws put me in jeopardy in my own home and deprive me of my right to defend my home. Does this make sense to anyone?

The more you don't understand the better it is for a lawyer and a prosecutor to argue it out in court at your trial for defending yourself. I was born and raised in NJ and never understood the firearm laws.

From everything of read where carry laws are a bit more relaxed (but still required to prove proficiency, background checks, etc) incidents of good guy bad guy shootings are way down from those states with rigid carry laws. If anyone of the teachers that tried to stop the shooter was armed the outcome would most likely have been much less deadly. Mayor Bloomberg came out against armed police in schools but he hasn't had his security detail disarm. Is his life worth more than any if the Ct children's? My solution would be armed police until school employees who want to carry concealed and are trained to do so can take over.

Most of the ugly incidents lately have been in locations where firearms are prohibited, schools, movie theaters and mall. Most of these shooters appear to be picking locations where resistance will be minimal. Changing those dynamics may be a solution.
