    Appeals court upholds a California law that imposes stringent conditions on who may be granted a concealed-carry permit. “Based on the overwhelming consensus of historical sources, we conclude that the protection of the Second Amendment — whatever the scope of that protection may be — simply does not extend to the carrying of concealed firearms in public by members of the general public,” the court said in a ruling written by Judge William A. Fletcher.

    Less guns in the public arena means less shootings.

    All you need to do is look at the states that have the highest gun ownership rates and the highest gun violence rates. They are highly correlated.

    Pray on it. Jesus would want more guns.

    Jesus would want people to not misuse guns. Guns are not evil or good.

    Keep guns out of the hands of criminals and irresponsible people. The rest ought to have the right to arm themselves.

    The problem is, it’s the criminals and irresponsible people that are the ones attracted to guns. Smart and responsible people know that being armed increases the risk of harm or death by a gun.
