"What's worse, by granting this right to individuals, the law strips the public of its right to occupy public spaces without the threat of being shot."
Does not compute... I wonder why? Too much bull-oney in this article to address, and it'd be a waste of time. Just a spew of catchphrases like 'shoot first law', making people think a CCW holder has the right to just go blasting anytime somebody makes them unhappy. Step on their toe, BANG, you're dead.
What I'd expect from the NYT
Remember this is the state that has elected Schumer and Clinton as Senators. Just like Kalif with Feinstein and Boxer. The only concealed carry guns they like are the ones on their body guards. Actually Clinton has secret service protection 24/7.
I read the NYT just to see how far out in left field they are.
This is very strange. Our local editorials focus on our own state, county, and cities. I don't believe they have ever written about other regions. What is the NYT purpose in doing this? Why avoid their own issues?
I'm not sure that I can see what's wrong with that ...
Well! Can't have THAT in New York!
How's free life in your metropolitan utopia, Verlyn?
Are the cops going through your bag on the Subway?
Have the officers confiscated your penknife?
Hazard a guess how many of your phone calls are on tape?
Have you even read the Bill of Rights?
You've got the right to speak while I've got the right to pack.
You ought to leave well enough alone.
It is rather simple Ryder , Liberals have to make a preemptive strike on the idea that decent citizens can responsibly own and use weapons that are purely designed and owned for the purpose of self preservation .
With all of the other states having these laws if the leftist leadership doesn't attack the idea itself even some on the left may conquer their hysterical fear of inanimate objects and say to their state law makers "hey why can't we defend ourselves from the criminal scum that you continually turn loose time and time again to prey upon me ?" .
As is the case with any topic they have the facts completely turned around and place blame not on the criminals for the fact that people feel the need to carry weapons of self preservation but on the NRA and gun owners as blood thirsty Bubas , who want to run around shooting people everywhere and anywhere for no reason at all .
They praise the fact that schools can be a "restricted area" for CCW while ignoring the facts that with all of todays school shootings an armed teacher or principal could perhaps save a few lives while waiting for police to show up if such a thing should happen at their school .
I have always wondered why someone hasn't asked the gun grabbers this simple question in regards to schools shootings " Back in the early 1800's there were almost no restrictions on ownership of guns why is it there were no school shootings by children then ?
The simple fact is that many of todays problems can be laid at their feet by promoting things such as "Multiculturalism" rather than teaching the simple values of respect for people as human beings kids are having this garbage rammed down their throats of respecting a culture that is barbaric and violent as a whole as we have seen with the religion of Islam .
The left refuses to teach individual responsibility as such would lead people to thinking that those who commit crimes would deserve to be punished rather than studied or pitied and turned loose to do it all over again .
Usually like his stuff
but this article was bad. Very slanted and it overlooks the fact that the presence of people with CCW protects the unarmed, just the way toxic Monarch butterflies protect the non-toxic Viceroys. The poisonous coral snake protects the non-poisonous king snake with similar markings. This principle is called Batesian mimicry and is a well established field in population biology. Are there any population biologists who could comment on this?
Local attorney/radio personality Greg Garrison had a segment about this article on his program this AM. He was steamed, and before he was through fuming I was too.
The term "cognitive dissonance" comes to mind.
