I just released a novel barely a week ago (Above Reproach
) in which the subject matter was armed citizens, in particular those with CHLs, proved irrefutably how they are the only "department of homeland security" this nation needs.
To that end, after several groups of CHL holders fended off attacks, a move was put forth to have a National Castle Doctrine Law that gave reciprocity for both CHLs and castle doctrine laws across all fifty states.
What is/was interesting. . . when the manuscript was being edited, the House was debating on voting on the national carry law. In my book, I had it easily clearing the House and being debated in the Senate.
I'm former military as well as former federal law enforcement. I've never ever been worried or threatened by legally armed citizens. Ever.
However, in reading the news blurbs about Ohio's eighth anniversary of concealed carry licenses, the most press-generating "one-liners" against concealed carry came from prosecuting attorneys, state highway patrol officers' groups, and police chiefs (typical).
As I tell cops I meet, "If you can't trust me with a gun, then I can't trust you with a badge."
