    Response to Arizona Article Complaining About Lax Concealed Carry Issuance Standards
    Story by: S.H. Blannelberry

    (I cherry picked the respons article for the below post text - read the whole article - link at the bottom of this post).

    .......

    Kellie Mejdrich of the Arizona-Sonora News Service wrote an article for the Tucson Sentinel in which she describes how easy it is for an Arizona resident to obtain a concealed carry permit and then implies the state needs tougher CCW issuance standards.

    I know some of you are shaking your heads right now saying, “I thought Arizona was one of the four states that approved Constitutional carry, why would one even need to obtain a CCW license?”
    Well, you’re correct on that, but as she pointed out in her article:

    In Arizona, hip slingers needn’t worry themselves over a permits if the gun’s visible you’re in the clear—even carrying concealed is allowed permit-free in most places. But to carry a concealed weaponin [sic] privileged places—like national parks, restaurants serving alcohol, and near schools — and to have your right to carry concealed recognized in 36 other states, you’ve got to get a permit

    ....................... (jump to the finer points of the article)...

    Although she acknowledged (the lady who wrote the article who is apparently anti-gun) that she misrepresented her experience with firearms, she seems to fault the instructor, Bob DeNis of CCW AZ School, LLC., a DPS-certified and NRA-certified instructor, for not questioning her suitability for the class. “DeNis never asked me whether I had shot a gun before, or evaluated my proficiency once I sat down for class,” she wrote. (I guess this is A-OK to lie if you are against guns - no harm, no foul!)
    In a follow-up interview, she asked DeNis why he didn’t inquire about her experience with firearms.

    In addition to pointing out that he has no legal obligation to do so, that those aforementioned disclaimers pass legal muster, and that it’s impractical to question every student who takes his one-hour class, he said that those who are seeking CCWs without adequate training are only hurting themselves.

    “Are they trying to circumvent the system and just get the CCW?,” he asked. “If they’ve never even fired a gun before, is that going to really be of help to them? Is that really going to be of value? They’re probably just wasting their money.”

    While DeNis raises very cogent points, there’s an ideological dynamic to this discussion. That is, personal responsibility v. government oversight. At the end of the day it comes down to this simple question: do you want the government to be solely responsible for your personal safety?

    Arizona is a free state, a state that values an individual’s fundamental right to self-defense. In California, in particular in Los Angeles County where I live, the average Joe cannot carry a concealed handgun. By denying citizens that right, Los Angeles County is telling its residents that it is responsible for their personal safety.

    Bearing this in mind, I would just like to remind Ms. Mejdrich how good she’s got it because, if given a choice, I’d much rather live in a place that errs on the side of freedom, than one that errs on the side of ‘government knows best.’

    So, congratulations Ms. Mejdrich, you fleeced the system to obtain a concealed carry permit. But at least you were able to get one.

    The anti-gun, anti self-defense blissninnies will continue to whine and caterwaul. In pro-gun states like AZ their cries are largely unheard.

    Not unheard, just ignored. That's what my brother, who is moving out of Arizona, told my Father and I.
