I would feel much safer knowing that law-abiding citizens could be carrying. In gun free zones and states, I know that only criminals will be armed. I cannot comprehend why anyone would prefer the second condition over the first condition (except for those who want the people disarmed so that government or thugs can grab more power).
What happens to my ability to carry in 32(?) other states if my Utah permit is invalid?
I suppose I will have to get a Florida permit.
