Re: Massachusetts worse...
Yeah, discretionary licensing is a terrible idea. It can be
done well, but putting the decision in the hands of someone whose job is
made significantly easier the fewer civilians there are carrying is a good
recipe for arbitrarity and unfairness.
That said, if I were in the situation you describe, I think I would
have moved if at all practical. Your gun isn't going to do anything to
protect your computer or home theater equipment when you aren't home. For
that matter, couldn't you keep a gun in your home and gain all the
benefits in defending that property that you could with a CCW, without
having one? Or does MA require permits even for a handgun in one's own
home? (Those make me angry.)
By the way (and I mean this in the friendliest of ways, as I do appreciate any
comments I receive), who are you, why are you reading my journal, and is
the location (Pittsburgh) given on your LiveJournal profile accurate?
