I was born in the People's Republic of Illinois, and lived in Chicagoland for twenty-one years. I never bought into the politics of the state, as I was put in private schools (thank God) by conservative parents. I recently moved here to Kentucky.
I've been around guns a lot, most of which were illegal. Where I grew up, even though the law was very restrictive, there were 17-year-olds who CCed illegally. Shootings were not common in my area, but they happened sometimes.
I was introduced to guns in Florida at a young age, learned to shoot from my uncle. Spent some time in Utah when I actually OCed someone else's gun for a little bit. I recently moved to Kentucky, where I OC every day.
My point is, I've experienced guns in several different parts of the country. In my experience, theonly place where people are terrified of guns has been Illinois, because the state says they're bad. So far, Kentucky has been very kind to me as an OCer. I've had no incidents, and in all the businesses that I've been to around here, only two have had signs displayed prohibiting weapons. One, I exchanged my firearm for a baton, and had no comments. The other, some of the workers witnessed me putting the gun back in the car, and said nothing. All in all, people seem pretty comfortable with gunsaround here.
As for the OP's topic, no, there's no way KY will top AZ. As previously mentioned, people here are too complacent. There isn't enough enforcement of the CCW for people to really care one way or the other. If someone wants to carry, they can, and there's very little chance they'll be bothered about it. That's good enough for most.
That said, I have to admit that the complacency makes me uncomfortable. Illinois is a state of political turmoil, 24/7. That's what I'm used to. I know from Illinois' examples that complacency is an invitation for self-bettering to stop, and when improvement ceases to be called upon, we start slipping backward. Politicians are always looking for oppertunities to chip away a little more of our rights, and when we get complacent and stop demanding improvement, they start picking at the political system and make tiny little adjustments here and there. Nobody really cares enough to stop it, so it gets worse and worse.
As you can see, I do not like a lack of political movement. If we aren't actively moving in the right direction, then someone else is actively moving us in the wrong direction.
