Gun rights advocates are hoping for even fewer restrictions on where they can have a firearm. Among their top goals is to make Arizona the third state where it is legal to carry a concealed weapon without a permit. Bills in the House and the Senate would also eliminate background checks and training classes for people to carry hidden guns.

“All we’re doing is handcuffing good people, restricting their constitutional, God-given right to carry and perhaps their ability to defend their families,” said State Senator Russell Pearce, a Mesa Republican sponsoring the bill.

Right on!

Police departments worry that making permits optional might encourage more people with bad motives to carry concealed weapons, said John Thomas, a lobbyist for the Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police. It also could lead to more accidents by people not adequately trained, Mr. Thomas said.

As always I disagree with the “encourage more people with bad motives to carry” argument, because criminals do not care about the law.  The part about accidents happening more frequently is a valid concern.  I hope that even for their own personal safety, no one would carry a gun that they were not familiar with.

I like the saying: “Never invite “the man” into your life”

Although I believe that is sage advice in most cases, I admire what those California residents are doing, despite being constantly harassed.

The police in the videos are all VERY nice, ill give them that.  I wonder if they would be so nice if they were not being video taped?  I hope so.

The person in the videos “David Julian” is a perfect example of how people that O.C. should behave when confronted by the police.  He knows the law, keeps his cool, and is very polite.  I hope that when he gets regularly stopped for those “checks” a number of curious anti gun people flock around and take notice of how the situation is handled, and maybe learn a thing or two.

If you don’t exercise your rights, there is a good chance they will be taken away.  This has been proven over and over.
