    What about the people who can now defend themselves with a concealed weapon, from the pricks?

    Sounds to me like uncontrollable 'anger' is the biggest problem.

    They are way, way outnumbered by the pricks.

    Yet another reason to carry concealed!

    You may be right about Chicago. There may be Cities and or Regions of the US where a Permited Armed Populace equates to a all out Gun Fight.

    The general innate rudeness of your average Northern resident is probably not going to mix well with a Concealed Hand Gun.

    But then again, maybe Chicago citizens just need to get acclimated to the idea that their neighbors are probably armed.

    Maybe after a few years of a lawfully armed populace, after a few arrest and shootings ( that already happens quite a bit in Chicago ) that innate rudeness will start to subside.

    A armed populace is ultimately a polite populace. Houstons a great example.
    People think twice because there is a real good chance your'e not the only one packing

    PLus, Texans are used to their neighbors guns, its been a part of our culture and heritage for decades.

    So you have two choices. Continue to arm the Criminals and the thugs and leave the rest unarmed, or give the citizens the right to carry, and let them evolve naturally into a better society.

    It is, but I'd still say brandishing a weapon over it isn't OK.

    This is OK, but if a Northerner made a crack about marrying your cousin in Alabama....

    Double standards. They aren't just for Liberals anymore.

    For the most part, I agree. This person still deserves punishment, and is clearly not "law abiding."

    You're not trying to say that we should completely change legislation because of a single relatively insignificant event, are you?
