I applied for my C.C.W. license yesterday afternoon.I had to go to classes,
a firing range,pass tests,back ground check...Everyone who has this license
knows what I'm talking about.
I went to the store this morning to buy postage stamps.I asked the manager
what was their store policy on carry-concealed?When she realized what I meant,
I thought she would faint on the spot.I assured her my weapon was at home
locked up,I didn't have it on me,or in my car.
She calmed down a little and stammered when trying to answer my question.
She didn't know what their policy was,she would have to ask their HR dept..
I was really taken back by her fear of just having a question asked about guns.
The fear this woman displayed opened my eyes.This type of fear is what
leads to gun control and gun ownership restrictions.
These people would only feel safe if guns were in the hands of the police or military.They would take away the guns of, law abiding citizens,not
the criminals would still be armed.I wonder how many of their customers could
pass the same back ground check?I wonder what people will give up to feel
they are safe?
