Here's my $.02.
The concealed carry permit is bologna. You shouldn't have to get a permit, under our Constitution, to carry a weapon. Besides, there's no need to
have to hide the weapon, but that's just personal preference. If you wish to carry a weapon in public... out in the open... you can.
When the concealed carry permit issue began, I swore to myself that I would not get the permit, because I whole heartedly believed it would be a way
for the Government to keep tabs on those that have weapons, because...
Currently, in order to purchase a weapon, all that is needed is to run your background to see if you have felony charges or the such against you that
would legally prevent you from owning such a weapon. However, that is not a registration process. When I purchase a weapon, I do not register it
either, for the same reason.
They might not have began the actual witch hunt for weapons owners, but I foresee it's in the near future.
As far as making a public listing of who does and does not hold permits, that is IMO, an invasion of your privacy. I don't have to share my personal
information with anyone, unless I choose to make that information publicly known. Regardless of the idea of 2,000 people in your area and you not
knowing them all... the fact of the matter is it's not a "list for the public" that should be worrying anyone.
The weapons in question are for self defense, against criminals/enemies, foreign and domestic, that will not follow common laws under any guise.
