Robert E. Sears II: Guns galore

August 20, 2013 

Guns galore

In response to the Aug. 9 letter “Won’t darken door,” 42 other states allow concealed and carry in places that serve alcohol and have not had increases in gun-related crimes. Also, considering that a very large number of the carrying population is female, the “macho” attitude the writer attributes to concealed and carry permit holders is also unfounded. As far as boycotting places that allow guns, it is and has been legal to carry in restaurants, retail stores, neighborhood sidewalks, gas stations for some time now. She is going to find it difficult to be out and about without running in to legal carry zones.
