I mean come on, most people who take time and apply for a permit are not criminals, and it a constatutional right to bear arms. here in Arkansas we have to take a class, which means locating an instructor hear they charge anywhere from 50-100 bucks, then another 150 for the permit! They give complete IMBACILS a friggin drivers license for 25.00 no class required, just test and drive with an instructor. Why not do that on CC permits test, make us qualify with our gun and charge 25-50 for the permit and run the background check. I mean logicly you can kill a whole bunch more people with a car than a pistol that holds 6-15 rounds. Where does the Constatution say You have the right to bear arms if you give us a chunk of money to run your name in a computer that instantly tells us every crime you ever commited or looney bin you were in. The government got their wires crossed. Oh and in Arkansas we have to have a permit to have a loaded gun in the car, otherwise it has to be unloaded, no bullets anywhere near it and in a gun box.... I mean that is pointless, what do we do say "Hey bad guy wait 10 minutes for me to open this box, get my bullets and load this mag so I can have a sporting chance".. Be real Arkansas, give us open carry or atleast glovebox carry in our cars! We pay property tax on our car just as we do land and houses so you notice a car is property but no loaded guns allowed?? For Real! Depend on a cop making it to you before your killed?? Average response time is what 10 minutes minimum, a man could strip, rape, and strangle a woman in less time. (Not bashin the Police, some of my best friends are cops), but your only human and can't teleport to crimes in progress.
