It will be the test of time to see the value or lack of for this law. I feel that either way, it is a deterent to criminals, since they don't know who now may also be packing.

Agree, we have open carry here in PA. We need permits to carry concealed. We also have the Castle doctrine now, thanks to Corbett. Good for Oklahoma, a boost to FREEDOM!

That's ok, we have what we need to put their match out. I bet though that the only place you will see this is NYC, Philly,LA and Chicago.........where the law won't do anything but direct fire trucks.

During a CNN debate at the height of the GOP primary, Mitt Romney was asked, in the context of the Joplin disaster and FEMA's cash crunch, whether the agency should be shuttered so that states can individually take over responsibility for disaster response.

"Absolutely," he said. "Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. Instead of thinking, in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask the opposite question, what should we keep?"

President Barack Obama has opened up a small lead on Mitt Romney in Virginia and continues to edge out his challenger in the swing states of Ohio and Florida, where the race remains tight, according to new presidential polls.
Presidential Polls: Obama Opens Lead In Virginia, Race Tightens In Ohio, Florida

While Obama maintains the lead in those three battleground states, Romney is holding the advantage in Colorado, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Thursday.

In the Reuters survey, Obama has a 5 percentage point lead in Virginia among likely voters, 49 percent to 44 percent. In Ohio and Florida, the incumbent’s advantage is much smaller though, only a 2 percentage point lead.

In Florida, Obama has 48 percent support, with Romney holding 46 percent. In Ohio, Obama leads 47 percent to 45 percent over Romney, according to Reuters.

Taking a look at Real Clear Politics’ polling average, the challenger is the one leading the incumbent in Florida, 49.1 to 47.9 percent. Obama’s Ohio lead is right on the mark in both polls though, as

PS:

President Barack Obama has edged back in front of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in Colorado, but the race remains a statistical tie, according to the results of the last Denver Post poll.

Obama leads Romney by two percentage points in the poll, 47 percent to 45 percent. That reverses a one-point lead Romney held in a poll released in October. A poll in September showed Obama with a one-point lead on Romney.

Obama should just save the jet fuel, and work on his brackets for next year, he will have plenty of time to enjoy basketball.

Romney 315
Obama 223

PA POLL JOLT: O 47% R 47%
MI: R 47% O 46%...

Indiana (11 electoral votes). Uncontested. Romney.

North Carolina (15 electoral votes). Obama has abandoned this target. Romney.

Florida (29). The biggest target state has trended Romney since the Denver debate. I don't see any segment of the electorate favoring Obama more than in 2008, and I see some (South Florida Jews) favoring him less. Romney.

Ohio (18). The anti-Romney auto bailout ads have Obama running well enough among blue-collar voters for him to lead most polls. But many polls anticipate a more Democratic electorate than in 2008. Early voting tells another story, and so does the registration decline in Cleveland's Cuyahoga County. In 2004, intensity among rural, small -town and evangelical voters, undetected by political reporters who don't mix in such circles, produced a narrow Bush victory. I see that happening again. Romney.

Virginia (13). Post-debate polling mildly favors Romney, and early voting is way down in heavily Democratic Arlington, Alexandria, Richmond and Norfolk. Northern Virginia Asians may trend Romney. Romney.

Colorado (9). Unlike 2008, registered Republicans outnumber registered Democrats, and more Republicans than Democrats have voted early. The Republican trend in 2010 was squandered by weak candidates for governor and senator. Not this time. Romney.

Iowa (6). The unexpected Romney endorsements by the Des Moines Register and three other newspapers gave voice to buyer's remorse in a state Obama carried by 10 points. Democrats' traditional margin in early voting has declined. Romney.

New Hampshire (4). Polls are very tight here. I think superior Republican intensity will prevail. Romney.

Pennsylvania (20). Everyone would have picked Obama two weeks ago. I think higher turnout in pro-coal Western Pennsylvania and higher Republican percentages in the Philadelphia suburbs could produce a surprise. The Romney team evidently thinks so too. Their investment in TV time is too expensive to be a mere feint, and, as this is written, Romney is planning a Sunday event in Bucks County outside Philly. Wobbling on my limb, Romney.


Wisconsin (10). Recent polling is discouraging for Republicans. But Gov. Scott Walker handily survived the recall effort in June with a great organizational push. Democrats depend heavily on margins in inner-city Milwaukee (population down) and the Madison university community. But early voting is down in university towns in other states. The Obama campaign is prepared to turn out a big student vote, but you don't see many Obama signs on campuses. Romney.
