GA: On Concealed Carry Reciprocity

From The Augusta Chronicle

We were enjoying lunch at a North Augusta, South Carolina, restaurant recently when a potentially violent incident nearly broke out.

We overheard a man telling his lady friend, odd as it sounds, that he should probably beat up another man seated nearby. “Why?” she asked him. Because of the company name on the man’s shirt, he told her. It was the name of a well-known national corporation.

The man spoiling for a fight was either mentally ill or perhaps had an unforgettable customer service problem with the company.

At any rate, luckily the completely innocent object of the man’s scorn appeared not to have heard the threat, and eventually the belligerent customer and his lady friend left.

But for a few tense moments, we realized we could’ve been caught in the middle of a brawl.

Feeling a sense of obligation to step in and protect the unwary patron against his would-be attacker, we briefly wondered if being armed would’ve been a good idea.

I am very wary of federal involvement with anything, even as seemingly innocuous as making national gun reciprocity. The federal touch does not heal, it hurts, and it doesn't stop touching, and hurting, but does it more and more. Thus it is a better idea that before allowing federal government involvement or expansion any more than it is right now, we first insist that the size and power of the federal government be halved.

In past it could have been gradually and methodically reduced. And so could our national debt. But today both are so fiendishly large that we have no other choice but to take an axe to them. If we radically reduce their size, in the case of the former, the federal government will at least survive instead of collapsing. And if we take an axe to our debt, perhaps our credit will be preserved instead of our having to default on our debts.

Until then, any new federal involvement in anything is pretty much out of the question.
