Rest in peace, William the Coroner

The world is a sadder place with your passing.

No, not me, this reporter – if you want to call him that.

With concealed carry laws in effect, I can’t be too lax about casual encounters anymore. I have to remind myself to be aware of any sudden movements or suspicious behavior by individuals while in public space.

Even driving back and forth from home to work takes on a new relevance. I have to make it a point to be more courteous to fellow motorists and exhibit extreme road courtesy in all situations.

You can’t be flipping anybody off in the age of concealed carry, that’s for sure.

Hate to tell you this, but a lot of holsters will do a very good job of tucking the firearm in so you won’t have that bulge. Also, the people who would be acting suspicious or having “sudden movements” are probably the bad guys and (I know, this will be hard to hear) they won’t be CC permit holders.

Thankfully, the “No Weapons Allowed in the Building” sign has been posted at my job, which was a great relief for some of us who write the kind of stories that occasionally get the public agitated.

(Thanks, boss!)

Yeah, because we all know those “No Weapons” signs are like a magic shield that makes anyone with a weapon incapable of entering the building.  Look how well it worked out at Virginia Tech.

I’ve traveled to many of the states that allow concealed carry – you probably have, too – and can attest to the fact the law doesn’t contribute to any greater or lesser sense of public safety.

Most times, you don’t even think about it.

Pro-gun advocates insist concealed carry laws lead to a decrease in crime, but statistics don’t bear that out in any discernible way. Apparently, there aren’t a lot of stories about concealed carry “heroes” rising up to stop crime.

Really??? I would love to know what stats you are looking at, because the ones I’ve seen show that the more we protect ourselves the more crime goes down.   But I am sure it’s just an aberration that crooks don’t target people when then think those individuals are armed.

I’ve heard all the arguments, but I’m still not sure why any ordinary citizen would feel the need to carry a gun in public for self-defense. What also doesn’t make sense to me is the idea that having more guns will make us safer instead of the other way around.

Uh-huh.  Heard all the arguments have you and yet you still can’t understand how a 102 lb woman would be safer when she is armed from Joe Biden’s 200 lb rapist than if she just tried to scare him of with a police whistle and a cell phone?  Are you sure you are competent to be functioning in society without a keeper then because it’s pretty damn obvious to me and a lot of other people.

Face it, you don’t trust yourself to handle a firearm and so you don’t think anyone else should have one either.

Well, I’m afraid that’s one fear you’ll either have to get over, or you can move to that gun free, crime free  paradise of Chicago.
