    Re: Do you have a conceal and carry license?

    I don't currently own a sidearm. When I get older and feel more like a mark I'll get a gun. I probably wouldn't get a carry permit. Didn't need one from 1976 to 1993. Won't need one in the future.

    The thing about a carry concealed permit is that it isn't any good in many places. Any place with a metal detector or a sign in the window makes your permit moot. So you are only allow to pack heat where firearm carrying is permitted, which isn't very many places.

    In CO it seems to be more about money than anything else. The CCW is up to the local sheriff to decide on. But the class is a few hours (~100 bucks though), and then for the permit another 152.50 (100 to the county and apparently it costs 52.50 to do a background check). There are movements in CO to get it changed to Vermont style, where in open and concealed are assumed standard. Which is the correct way to do it.

    That is also the way we do it in Alaska. No permit required. The only reason to get a permit here is if you want to carry in another state which honors an Alaska permit.

In my experience, most of the time they don't care and don't even ask to see it once you tell them.

    But not safer:

    Corrections Statistics for the State of Alaska

    The crime rate in Alaska is about 8% higher than the national average rate. Property crimes account for around 83.6% of the crime rate in Alaska which is 3% higher than the national rate. The remaining 17.7% are violent crimes and are about 29% higher than other states. The following graph shows how Alaska compared to the rest of the states.

    I'm well aware of that. A good friend of mine is a state trooper. There are 2 main factors which account for this. First is the extremely high rate of alcohol related crimes. Second is the almost total lack of law enforcement in many parts of the state....something our former governor attempted to address.
    There is no doubt we have a crime problem here, but it is truly not related to guns. Our violent crimes tend to be rapes/sexual assault, domestic-related (and usually alcohol related) assaults, etc. I'm not in any way downplaying our problems, but they do not stem from firearms. Alcohol is our major problem.

    Just pointing out that the abundance of firearms does not make Alaska any safer than other states.

    Re: Do you have a conceal and carry license?

    Only in the last two decades, have I seen this land slide in favor of "Safety". My generation ran with scissors, wore no helmets, seatbelts, or under wear. We jumped off high places, and surfed in shark filled waters. We gave no thought to safety. ---Now days I fear, people sleep with sweat dampened sheets. --"Safety Third" is my Moto. Let's go play in traffic.
