Today, 40 states issue permits to competent, law-abiding adults to carry concealed handguns (Vermont and Alaska have the most libertarian approach: no permit needed. Arizona is about to join that exclusive club.) Every time a carry law was debated, anti-gun activists predicted outbreaks of gun violence after fender-benders, card games, and domestic quarrels.

What do "Assault weapons" (whatever you construe that to mean, a much-abused term) have to do with crime? FBI stats show that so-called AW's are very very rarely ever used in crimes. Knives are used to murder more often than AK's.

Yep....been cut more times with that serrated plastic knife, then I've been shot with an AK. And that was just while I was trying to get it out of the package.
