"in this age of the cowboy"
This age? Hmmmm, so how are all your steads doing? How man mpo (miles per oats) do they get? Anybody see Wild Bill these days at the local saloon? In fact, what is this big glowing picture box in front of me?
The problem is that Florida has had CCW for a long time but never heard anything about it. Other states just thought they were crazy. Now only Illinois (my state ) and Wisconsin think the rest of the nation is crazy. Funny how all the gun bans in my state of Illinois in Cook county do nothing to reduce the crime, oh wait I forgot, if you have legal guns then you have to wonder about the gun grabbers way more than the criminals do that show that they have no guns on the data base.
