Karen Webb’s letter “Bullet proof in the line of fire,” (Jan. 19, Gazette) would be amusing, if not for the backward thinking perpetrated by the gun-hating zealots.
Webb asks, “How do you tell a good guy with a gun from a bad guy with a gun?” Karen, here’s a hint: The bad guy is the one with a gun killing people.
Webb claims to leave “any and every establishment when I see a person with a gun who is not wearing a law enforcement uniform.” Since Oklahoma law states your gun must be concealed, how are you seeing all these people with guns? I know of no one advocating everyone and their old maid aunt pack heat, except you.
Law abiding citizens that legally carry concealed weapons are not just waiting around for a horrific event to occur, so they can take out their gun and blast someone. Carrying a concealed weapon comes with a huge responsibility, as all law enforcement personnel well know.
date, I know of not one event where a law abiding citizen carrying a
concealed weapon pulled their gun and shot a hail of gunfire. “When
everyone opens fire, no one will know who the perp is,” is, without a
doubt, one of the most paranoid statements ever uttered by someone who
claims “Paranoia is not my friend.”
