Interesting post. I agree that there will be unintended consequences, however we may not fully realize what they are until the law has time to fully take effect. The only one thing I did not agree with is that if passed, people will suddenly start carrying long guns as an alternative. I am sure there may be those who do, just as they do now, but by and large a rifle or shotgun just isn't practical to lug around. They are great visual references to use as tools in staging a peaceful protest but in terms of carrying them everywhere you go like the bank, grocery store, etc, I think is unrealistic.
I do believe that CCW policies will be challenged in court and will result in a victory for gun owners. Sadly the victory will come with a loss on the other end.
