Infringed- Is the Right of Self-
Defense Half Full or Half Empty?

A growing number of us go armed in public. John Lott, Phd added up the number of concealed carry licenses. By his numbers, we’ve added millions of new people who have a permit to carry concealed. What we’ve ignored is the tens of millions of law abiding citizens who were denied the right to keep and bear arms. Judges routinely ignore laws that infringe our rights.

Doctor Lott added up the numbers from coast to coast. He found over 18 million people who have concealed carry permits. That is about a million and a half more than last year. On top of that, millions more of us live in states that have constitutional carry. Those states allow law abiding citizens to carry concealed in public without a permit.

Is that progress, or are our rights routinely violated in many states?

18 million sounds like progress. Unfortunately, it ignores the tens of millions of us who where were denied the right of armed defense. .....

It can well be mentioned again that a requirement for a permit to carry should not be necessary for good people. 'Constitutional Carry' has redressed that situation in some states but this is still not enough when there are states such as CA, NJ, HI etc who deny - the right of self defense should be sacrosanct.
