    No disagreement there. My only point would be that the abundance of firearms also does not make it less safe. I believe that can be partially attributed to the fact that Alaskans view guns as a part of life. They grow up with them. I started shooting before I started school, as did my kids.

    Don't forget riding around in the back of pickups, jumping off of cliffs and bridges to go swimming, playing lawn darts, having BB gun wars, blowing stuff up with firecrackers, and climbing trees. When I was a kid, using a gun was one of the "safer" things I did.

    No offense but that is just a ridiculous statement. You give people more respect if you feel they might have a gun? Do you live in 1840s California? Because that is the only place where I'd think people would pull out a gun if they felt like they were disrespected. Do people like you actually exist? Because I know quite a few gun owners(most are family members) and I don't know many who think of their guns when they are disrespected.

    We grew up with guns in Wisconsin, too. Guns and hunting were a part of life. Just like Alaska.

    Funny... 'Round here, its MOST places. "No Guns" signs are prety rare.

    What was your experience with this class and/or the entire process?

    First, sweetheart, it's "concealed carry permit".

    Yes, I've had one for many years.

    The class I took was easy, practical and informative, and cost 50 bucks.

    My state has "shall issue" permits, like 40 others; they cannot deny you a permit without a specific legal reason, such as you're a felon.

    I carry pretty much all the time, because I am not comfortable about depending on the benevolence of my fellow man.

    Funny... 'Round here, its MOST places. "No Guns" signs are prety rare.
    Ditto. I rarely come across a place that is posted "no carry", and almost never see metal detectors.

    Properly a permit ought not be necessary to exercise a right specifically enumerated in the Constitution; however I have compromised and got a permit because 1. I want to carry and 2. I don't want to get in trouble with the law for carrying.

    I grew up in Wisconsin also did lots of fishing and hunting.

    Wisconsin and Illinois do not have carry permits

    No we don't, but you can openly carry handguns without a permit if you want. I don't know why one would want to, though.
