This hassel could have been prevented if the legal system in this country would have followed the 2nd Ammendments instructions ...shall NOT be infringed. Most of us law abiding citizens would be carrying concealed, instead of in the open, were it not for the requirement of a permit. You see it was we, the people, that informed our government, of the rights that we have, given to us by God, that are not to be infringed. We, the people, by our constitution, do not need anyones permission, to arm ourselves for our own protection. Is it even fair to expect any law enforcement officer to give his, or her life up, to save ours if we aren't willing to save our own? I think not.
