Concealed Carry

Criminals, by definition, have a disregard for the law.  Concealed Carry gun owners have a healthy respect for the law, and are required to follow it verbatim in order to be granted a license to carry a concealed firearm.  Banning concealed carry will not prohibit the criminal from bringing a firearm into those spaces.  It will inhibit the person that is following the law.  Further, in this day and age, with terrorist activity on the rise, please do not put private citizens at a disadvantage should we have the misfortune of finding ourselves under attack.  Note that concealed carry is not a mandate that all citizens must carry, those who don't wish to, or are otherwise inelligible under the law cannot (legally).  The neat thing about concealed carry is that those fragile folks that may feel faint at the sight of an open carry firearm, will not be compelled to see one on someone who is carrying concealed.  Thanks in advance for your consideration.
