The following is from BushRat. He addresses a common concern some people have with trusting other people to carry firearms. I hear this same concern a lot too, "I'm not comfortable with the idea of people carrying guns, I don't know if I can trust them". BushRat provides examples of how we invest a lot of trust in our fellow citizens already:
* Police officers - while off-duty, carry firearms, and do not rob stores or shoot people, even if they have the capability
and a chance not to get caught.
* Red lights - we trust the other driver to stop at red lights, and law-abiding drivers do - and most do even if there is no
one coming from either direction.
* General shopping - People still go to registers to pay for goods, even if the doors are wide open for them.
* Speeding - most People choose to follow the speed limit, even if there is no one else on the road.
* General public - everyday we trust law-abiding citizens to respect our person and our safety as we go about our
99% choose to obey the law - 48 other states have proven carrying a firearm for personal protection does not turn a law-abiding person into a potentially violent perpetrator.
