So, do none of you think any person should ever be carrying a gun for protection?
Obviously, I don't know these women so I don't know what they are like or how they handle themselves. I also know that every state has different conceal & carry laws and I don't know Virginia's.
But, in Missouri(where I would say the conceal/carry laws are very lax) you have to take a multiple days course where you learn all the laws, statistics, and information about guns. Then you have to pass a test. Then you go to a shooting range and you have to pass a test. There is a certified instructor who grades you and says you can pass. THEN you have to go to the police station and have a background check, finger prints, etc. before you can finally buy and receive your ccw.
Have any of you ever shot a gun before? They don't just go shooting off willy nilly. Depending on the type of gun, but more than likely, you will have to release the safety, *** the gun, and then pull the trigger. All things that are challenging even for me to do. You have to learn how to. Not something that a 2 year old will be capable of.
That being said, I sure hope they aren't just leaving their purses laying around? Because that makes no sense. But, if they are stowed within their purse and they have their ccw's. By all means, more power to them. Good for them.
