The Roanoke Times is crapping themselves over the fact that it’s easy to get a license to carry in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
And I have my permit. Even though I have never laid a finger on a pistol in my life.
To me, that’s final proof that Virginia’s concealed carry law is insanely weak, utterly ridiculous and absolutely reckless.
It makes about as much sense as the General Assembly giving blind people permits to drive.
In Pennsylvania, it’s even easier than in Virginia. But hey, even though we have about three times the number of licensees as Virginia, it’s not causing mass hysteria and blood running in the streets. I suppose it probably comes as a shock to the Roanoke Times that people who aren’t into shooting typically don’t tend to get concealed carry licenses. And lets not forget about Vermont and Alaska, which require no license to carry at all. Real dangerous states, those two. People shooting each other by mistake all over the place right?
