I would be remiss if I didn't mention that gun carry laws for concealed guns broke loose in early 90s with Florida and then others coming on board and following the success. Just wanted to add that tidbit. Criminals are less likely to attack if there is a chance of them being shot. I find most criminals are cowards.
