Letter: Why keep concealed carriers out of public spaces?

To the Editor:

I wonder about the motives of the “gun control” people who want to keep those with “concealed carry” permits out of schools, theaters, public gatherings, etc.

These are the places where many, or most, of the mass shootings take place. Since the criminals who do the shootings are not stopped by the law, it invites them to go to such places for their peculiar satisfaction of killing, or injuring others.

The law would provide them with a virtual guarantee that no one would be able to fight back and stop them.

Thus a law to keep responsible and trained gun owners out is an invitation to more mayhem!

Is this what the “gun control” supporters want? Perhaps they do want more public murder to boost their efforts to destroy the Second Amendment.

The Second Amendment is a part of our constitution for good reason.

We still need to be able to protect ourselves from dangerous people whether they be insane individuals, attempts at political coups or invaders of any kind.
