They passed the law here a few years ago, but you have to take a course in gun safety, get finger-printed, carry the card with you and all that rigamarole. Still, the anti-gun folks fought tooth-and-nail against it, shrieking that it would cause an increase in gun violence. No such increase has been reported, despite the thousands and thousands of CCW permits issued.
There hasn't been any measurable decrease in gun-crimes, either. Just a whole lot of law-abiding citizens feeling safer, some of them business owners who need to carry cash once in awhile, some people who have to drive in bad areas, and fear car-jacking. I read a recent story, about a Wayne State (downtown Day-twa) professor, in her mid-60's, who finally agreed to teach a night class now that she can pack heat while walking through the parking structure.
Strap on, strap off,
(apologies to "The Clapper" commercial)
It's kind of funny, the way certain laws that are passed to increase public safety don't pan out the way they're supposed to. For instance, the introduction of air-bags and mandatory seatbelt laws, which was supposed to save thousands of lives every year. It turned out, people just started driving worse, feeling all invincible and safe in their tanks.
Somebody suggested, they should put a mandatory, sharp steel spike, about a foot long, sticking straight out from the steering wheel. I'd bet you a yard of kielbasa, that
would improve the driving habits of most people!
