With more citizens carrying weapons, can we expect a higher rate of criminals being killed during the commission of their crimes rather than burdening the state with incarceration expenses?

mmain1, I agree with braxler09. Yes, I am VERY AWARE that a large number of citizens carry firearms, with or without a permit, which are concealed, on their person. A mugger determined to rob YOU would most likely take action first, to neutralize your ability to defend yourself with a firearm. braxler09 is right, the element of surprise is very valuable. I personally do not want to see everyone walking around with a firearm strapped to their side like the old wild wild west.

If a person really wants to commit a robbery and is willing to kill someone. His/her first target will be the citizen with a gun. I think I will keep mine concealed. The element of surprise is very valuable.

@slimjim Do you think Open Carry would INCREASE violence? Don't you think a criminal would think twice about mugging you if you had a side arm in plain sight? Are you afraid that open carry allows criminals to walk around with a firearm? Do you understand that a large number of citizens are carrying guns at your local Wal-Mart and you just can't see them because they are concealed? I am failing to see how an Open Carry law will INCREASE violence.

I DON'T THINK THE GOVERNOR HAS THE GUTS TO APROVE THIS BILL. HE IS IN VETO MODE AND DOSE NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT IS GOOD FOR THIS STATE.
