FWIW, Arizona used to require a permit for concealed carry. They undid that law. You can conceal carry without a permit now.

Disclosure - I have never owned a handgun in my life and don't want to carry one.

I don't understand why a law-abiding citizen needs a permit to carry. Only dumbshlts and psychos who don't know crap about firearms are the dangerous ones, and no amount of laws on the books will deter them from carrying. Why, in the name of Allah's butthole, would there be a law in the first place punishing the citizens in good standing?

Micheal Miller takes the Renton shooting and expands it quite a bit. The non-fatal, non-mass shooting was the segway to the Ingraham article.


"Yet people with concealed-carry permits are more likely to commit mass shootings than to stop them, according to The Washington Postís Christopher Ingraham. He found that concealed-carry permit-holders have committed at least 29 mass shootings since 2007, compared with roughly eight known cases of permit-holders using their weapons to stop such mass shootings."
--------------------------------------------
Ingraham uses borrowed stats from several sources including the Violence Policy Center who produced the 29 mass shootings number. Many of the article commenters challenged the incidents item by item undercutting VPC. The basis of the complaints were that some of the 29 didn't even have CC permits, some of the incidents involved shot guns or rifles, they tailored the definition of a mass shooting, and the irrelevance of CC in some cases of murder/suicide.

You are correct but there will always be irresponsible people. So drive drunk (or while texting etc), some leave the gates to swimming pools unlocked or do a myriad of other dangerous things. That's the way the world is and has always been.

Or, as it was in this case, negligence. Which is, unfortunately, more common than accidents.
