The campaign to discredit defensive handgun carry

Another reason I rarely approach gun rights advocacy from this angle is that I don't believe in licensing the carrying of a firearm. In submitting to a licensing requirement to carry a firearm, we undermine our own case--that the keeping and bearing of arms is a Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right. Still, Vermont and Alaska seem unlikely to annex the rest of the states any time soon, and few states seem on the verge of joining those two in their Constitutional enlightenment, so licensed carry is apparently what we're stuck with for the time being.

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Give it a look.
