Armed and Dangerous

Your article http://enquirer.com/editions/2002/01/18/loc_wells_armed_and.html

Mr. Wells, I find it highly offensive that you think just because a lawful citizen is carrying a gun, that you would expect them to use it for everything from self defense, to opening a can of soda, to using it as a tool for arguing.

While that might be your inclination, it is not everyone's.

What I find very hard to understand is that you mention Ruehlman's statements, that the law-abiding citizens have the absolute right to defend themselves, then go to say that because they are law-abiding and have firearms, that total chaos will ensue.

We DO have a reasonable law already, it's called the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution. It's part of the Bill of Rights. The same Bill of Rights that gives you your freedom of speech and press.

After reading such an article from a person such as yourself, I'm very much in favor of a new law to be sure someone doesn't print something stupid with their freedom of speech before it is examined by a government official and deemed necessary and appropriate.

33 states in the US have shall-issue license laws. None of those states have degraded into Wild West movie style shoot outs.

What would your law be? Something that only let people of 'importance' carry or even possess a firearm?
