Check out the latest Combat Handguns
Massad Ayoob just wrote an article on the subject in Combat Handguns about carrying without a permit. He details 5 cases where someone was involved in a legitimate self defense shooting and in most cases ended up with a felony on their record, jail time etc. when they could have gotten permits for very little time and money, been aquitted of everything and walked free. Now they have NO firearms rights. Being paranoid about confiscation is rediculous. They can come to my door but you have a lot of other rights too to prevent illegal search and sizure. They can take the first few, but the last they're going to get from my cold hands if it came to that. And I will never live in a state that will come to that. The article is quite good and a real eye opener to be educated on your local gun laws. Prosecuters will not bend on a felony even if you had every right to use a gun in self defense. Get the permit.
