    Since the law is new, It may take a while for people to understand the added level of responsibility
    that comes with a CCW permit.
    As to the people being violent over parking spaces, that does not happen much in Houston.
    The guy, or gal in the other car is likely armed.

    Like I said there's gonna be more CC tough guys arrested for pulling their guns over things that don't need guns pulled. People in this town are assholes by nature and giving them the go ahead to carry a gun in public is a bad idea.

    That's like saying more people will become hungry, without proving any order of magnitude. If one more person does this, you'll be correct. That doesn't make it a problem.

    It will be a problem. I've lived here my whole life, Chicago is not a town where Old Style drinking Jim Grabowski's should be carrying around guns.

    So there should be a Grabowski exception?

There's going to be more arrests of more people who get pissed off over some petty thing and feel justified in pulling a pistol just because the have a CCP.
    I'm actually pretty impressed that the law was written the way it was . . . allowing immediate revocation pending disposition of his case. (I'd imagine it's pending disposition). As to it being a sign of things to come? Undoubtedly. But that should certainly not be taken as an indictment of the right to conceal carry.

    The state police have revoked O’Connell’s permit based on a provision of the concealed carry law that says permit holders can’t be the subject of a “proceeding for an offense or action that could lead to disqualification to own or possess a firearm,” said Monique Bond, a spokeswoman for the agency.

    What I'm saying is that as hostile and prickish the inhabitants of Chicago are, going to fisticuffs over nothing in public places, that if you give the green light for these people to carry guns in public they're not going to merely fist fight.

    Brilliant.
    Actually, guns aren't the problem. Asshole people are the problem.

    That's the key: keep the guns out of the hands of the yahoos and let the rest of us have them.
