While allot of the column is BS, and anti gun, read what Carson City's Chief Deputy Steve Schuette said.
Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong said both old and young can abuse guns, noting the number of older (over 40) gun users arrested for illegal use.
The one commonality he saw was with those who come to his office, register their weapons, pick up locks for them or apply for concealed-weapon permits. These "responsible" gun owners, he said, "are usually not the ones who pose a problem." Furlong characterized most guns involved in crimes as unregistered guns used by untrained owners.
Carson Sheriff's Chief Deputy Steve Schuette said more Carson residents have applied for concealed weapons (CCW) permits each year since 2001 - and touts it as "progress."
"With CCWs legal, that portion of the public is better educated," he said. "I don't know if the general public is doing more to arm themselves, but I haven't seen the amount of general gun (crimes) go up substantially at any one point."
Waiting on my CCW to arrive in the mail... Here in beautiful sunny violent Las Vegas.
