The author asks, "Really?" Well, yes, REALLY!

There were probably 1200 bills introduced in our current legislature. Many important issues and some that maybe not so important - frivolous even!

But SB-231 IS an important issue. Read (or better yet, listen) the testimony. The supporting testimony was factual and credible. The opposition fell flat.

Support SB-231.

It's so obvious! The answer to excessive gun violence is, of course, MORE guns. Because, when everyone had guns in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries, there was NO violence in these parts. Right? Wrong!

Basically true.

See John Lott's scientific and highly credible study "More Guns Less Crime".

Violence in these parts - the "old west"? I think you'll find there was less violence per capita.

There is MUCH truth in the statement, "An armed society is a polite society."

Lots of inaccuracies posted here.

A person does NOT lose the right to CCW when said person "flashes" (allows firearm to be seen)- although that can be a dumb thing to do! There is no law requiring the firearm to remain concealed. It is my opinion your firearm SHOULD remain concealed - or simply Open Carry it.

Carrying your concealed firearm in Costco (or any other lawful place) is NOT stupid. "Stupid" is leaving your firearm at home! Others here have adequately described the "trespass" vs posted signage issue.

"Not the old/wild west"? Maybe we should return to those days. Contrary to popular belief and what the movie makers would have you believe, the old west was actually quite peaceable - the per capita crime rate (the only way to judge) was actually lower than it is today.

More guns, less crime. An armed society is a polite society.

To the Canadian that said we would be better off if no one had firearms: There never has been, and never will be, such a utopia. Bad guys do what bad guys do - and law abiding citizens have the right to defend themselves.

It seems no one knows for sure what happened in Mr Scott's case. I do hope we'll finally get some real details.
