That is correct, but there is also not a valid reason to have it. Ergo, they should not have it.Why do you feel you have to have a badge to own a gun. I know some of the best SNIPERS that aren't a part of the military, FBI or any government agency for that matter. You don't need to be a professional to know how to responsibly use a gun.
What do you imagine will happen? I think he will kill the robbers in the best scenario. Who is he to kill people without them being convicted by a judge in a legal trial?Sometimes people with CWP's actually SAVE LIVES in a public setting. For example: a man that LEGALLY owns a gun is shopping inside a store. Two armed robbers come in and try to hold folks hostage or rob the place. By law and his legal right, the man that has a CWP (concealed weapons permit) can pull his weapon to defend himself and other people in that store.
The other thing that can happen is that the robbers will kill people in their attempt to sve themselves.
And maybe even the guy that knows how to handle the gun, is not really up to the job due to the stress of the situation and he kills innocent people....
What about relying on the police to solve this? Those people are trained for the job.
That's not going to stop the criminals....The only exception to this are places that have signs that say "no concealed weapons allowed". In this case, only law enforcement is allowed to enter in any location with a gun.
How does the screening look like? What do they check?People go through a screening process here to own a gun. You can't just go in a store/pawn shop and buy a gun without going through a process, first. Criminals aren't allowed to legally own guns depending on the crime they were convicted of. Example: if you go to jail because you didn't pay your child support, you can still own a gun because that's not a violent crime. If you go to jail for criminal domestic violence, your "legal" gun owning days are over. It varies but it's fair.
There! At least we have accomplished that :-)I do agree with you when you say people with mental instabilities shouldn't own a gun.
But how do you make sure they don't?
