Not only are successful gun defenses nearly non-existent, but you're for more likely to die by gun when there is one in the home vs. when not. That the majority of CCW holders would never know what to do when faced with an opportunity for a legal gun defense and...maybe I am arguing to repeal CCW at least. ;^)
    I have no idea why someone would want to conceal carry.

    As those of you who post here know, I own guns. However, they are all hunting rifles or shotguns. I don't own a handgun because, frankly, I have no use for one.

    I can't imagine walking around with a gun strapped to my waist, or tucked into my pants or sock, or whatever. I'm not even a big fan of carrying a cellphone, let alone a gun. Why not just stick a hammer in your pocket, if you want to carry around something bulky, heavy and unnecessary.

    Furthermore, I have no desire to carry a gun because I fear that at some point I might be tempted to actually use it, or threaten to use it, and I don't need the crap that will follow that decision.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    • The theory is if the baddies don't know if you're carrying then they will assume everybody is carrying and not rob you.

      In reality, if the baddies even think about it at all, they will assume everybody is carrying you and murder you.

      So instead of losing your wallet you lose your life.

      But it's just a dick substitute, anyway.

        That used to be the friggin standard. Now for many it is a status symbol like wearing a friggin Apple Watch or something.

        If CCW was allowed at the Fair attendance would take a hit.

          One person's answer (YMMV):

          When I go to the range, but make other stops on the same trip, I do not want to leave a firearm unattended in my vehicle. When it's not physically in my possession it's in my vault at home is how I was trained.

          • Has the MN State Fair always had these political subplots/lithmus tests happening around it? Seems like the rural country folk like to push the buttons of the liberal city folk when they visit since they know that their kind will be there in masse alongside them, so safety in numbers kind of deal.

                Not that I know of. The Gazelkastanians are riled up looking for a fight though.

                  Doesn't MN CCW law have a "not at public gatherings" criteria like ND?

                      • Our law is stupid. It was a disaster when passed and has never gotten better.

                        There is no need for CCW anywhere. If you don't feel safe fucking leave.

                          nothing happening

                          well, I guess that’s a “no.”

                              Good Lord. You could lock the gun in traveling safe of some sort as opposed to walking around strapped because of the 0.0001% chance your vehicle is broken into and the weapon taken.

                                But then he wouldn't feel like a big manly man walking around with his penile enhancement strapped on.
