What might have happened if the first guy who saw him come in had been wearing a Judge Rage?

Just sayin!

There was a recent video of a senior citizen in Florida stopping two armed robbers (one with a pistol, the other with a bat). The senior had a firearms license and a concealed pocket pistol. I believe there was another case where an armed citizen shot into the air and sent the criminals running. I'm not so sure you would have to penetrate his body armor to stop the threat. I believe he had a very detailed plan and that anything that altered his plan (ie any form of resistance) would have shut him down. This is , however, purely speculation on my part. Either way I pray for the victims and their families and hope that his days are few and miserable.

No telling how many potential bad situations have been avoided just by the potential of having a concealed weapon.

^ the biggest reason to allow any kind of carry.

I never carry a gun but the mere fact that i could be is a great deterrent.

Default HB679 - sleeps with the fishes

FWIW the reason behind this thread in the first place - HB679 - never made it out of committee. No surprise.

ETA: The link in the first post in the thread no longer works.
