Correction: if passed SOON it will be number 5. Wyoming, Arizona, Alaska & Vermont already have Constitutional Carry. 6-7 other states are considering it currently, as well.

If the media were to as frequently post stories about how the government is debating whether or not to "let" people practice their choice of religion, to speak their mind freely, or to refuse unreasonable searches and seizures, etc, without fear of persecution or prosecution...

Well now, in those cases, I'd have to think that "We the People" would be looking for answers why, why most journalists and media personalities would feel the need to frame the argument in such a manner - to put it nicely.

Yes about time to stop crime in its tracks. While someone is being hack to death without protection and waiting to call police after the fact it is to late. Lets help the PD do thier job before they get there. Hey, live free or die trying.

Without getting into the debate of the merits, or lack thereof, of CCW laws, your suggestion to 'help the PD do their job,' points out a misconception that some have (not necessarily you) about the responsibilities and limitations of those who carry.

Where I live, obtaining a CCW comes with the strong caveat that you are NOT a cop empowered to enforce the law, as some cowboys and wannabes seem to think.
A permit to carry is for self-protection or for the protection of another who faces imminent serious bodily harm or death. If you choose to use deadly force in either of those situations, you better be pretty sure that youÂ’re right.

While there is latitude in determining what factors might justify the use of deadly force in the circumstances described above, its use is still restricted to those situations.

There are cases where deadly force is acceptable.

More guns = less crime = fewer cops = more freedom, more privacy, and more safety.

An armed society is a safer society.

Cops don't want an armed society because it threatens their careers.

So it's really not about WHO is empowered to enforce the law, rather it's simply about a safe society because an armed society can change current thinking and create a samaritan society that needs fewer police.

A police force is not required, it's a luxury for societies that can afford one. Cops force us to think we must depend on them, and they have their tactics to do that.

They are a bureauacracy. Govt (police) are not the most efficient at anything. The answer to no person or entity.

An armed samaritan society is more efficient and free.
