Well Pauly, I understand and I appreciate that you prefer to be law abiding citizen. In fact I applaud you. There are a lot of people who don't care what the law says, and that can negatively affect things for all of us who choose to carry in a law abiding manner. I think everyone in this forum is in the same boat on this one too.
I obey the law 100% concerning my firearms and everything I do with them, but that does not mean the law is just or right in its implementation. That is why I am refusing to support this flawed system of CCW. I simply refuse to by into the CCW program an register with it. I personally find it to be a program that supports unconstitutionalism, because as I have stated before: the law should never restrict or infringe a citizens right to carry a gun for self protection, regardless if it is O/C or C/C.
The transportation thing also creates a lot of stink in my opinion, and I am sorry that one needs a CCW to transport a firearm in a vehicle, I find that ludicrous. Isn't that the whole Legba Vs. Ohio case right now?
I also understand the system ins't perfect, I just hope for it to be better and much less flawed, where the laws that would be in place would be fewer and thus not so conflicting with one another.
Another perspective - the Government is a business and they have found another way to make money off of something being illegal. Sound familiar? They do it with drug prohibition everyday. I also refuse to pay any Government cash money for my rights. If the people in the beginning would have recognized the Pork Barrelling Schema behind the CCW program and refused to support it by simply drawing up a bill requesting that the laws be changed as far as transporting a firearm, we would never have this loop in place. But I don't blame the people, I believe we are taken advantage of. The government knew that this could happen and probably would happen, so they are trying to make as much money off of it as possible before it changes. Oh, and I care.
