Concealed Carry Absurdity

Has anyone ever really thought about the absurdity of a concealed carry permit?

Essentially it is a tax levied on you for exercising your right. It authorizes you to do something that no one will ever know you are doing.

Its sorta like getting permission to wear pink underwear or just dream about stuff.

Since no one will ever know you are doing it – including the government office that issues the permit – why do you need someone’s permission to do it?

One of these ladies could be breaking the law if they were not in my driveway.

Don't let the Galco Holster handbags sway your judgement about which lady requires government permission to do what she is doing. Both handbags are from Galco but only one contains a gun.

    My sentiments exactly: You could not have spoken truer words if you were Abraham Lincoln himself. (It’s always been about control) and has never been about the color of your underwear or your dreams. CONTROL, SUBJECTS, PAWNS, CITIZEN IN NAME ONLY, RIGHTS ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A FICTITIOUS NAME GIVEN TO SUBJECTS AND PAWNS ALLOWING THEM TO FEEL ABSTRACTLY NOBEL.

    In addition to that I’ve always thought of it as back door gun owner registration.
    It’s also another tax. Just like a Worker Comp Exemption down here in Florida. I have to pay the state gvmt just so I can say I’m exempt from something. Just another tax!

    Richard I enjoy your posts here. I read everyone. You have penned nothing in this one but truth. Most ink drops by writers are based on opinion. Politics, investments, entertainment, etc . But what you have written here in this one is nothing but truth. God Bless you.
