Does anybody really think that a federal ban on CCW permits would stop concealed carry? Prohibition didn't work -- why would the feds think they can outlaw firearm possession or carry. Osama may not have common sense, but he ain't stupid, either.
Concealed is concealed. Besides, if I return to Alaska and buy a hideout homestead, I'll be open carrying. (BTW, Alaskans don't need a stinkin' piece of paper to carry concealed. Damn, I miss living there!)
