(quote was from the article) That is insane. This is the same type of things I hear from the antis here in Texas. The problem is, most of those people don't understand the strict requirements our state has in order to get such a license. That being the case, the chances of police even having an encounter with a license holder is rare at best. And as far as knowing who is packing heat, there are bound to be plenty of criminals walking around with illegal packing of heat already.
For cops, a concealed carry law turns every traffic stop, public event or encounter with an angry civilian into a nerve-racking test to figure out who might be packing heat and who isn't.
