In these uncertain times, for our gun rights, I was just wondering if any of my fellow GTers are having any regrets about having a CCW permit?

No, I'm not kidding. I'm just saying with all the uncertainty and I read a lot on here that people don't trust anyone. Open carry is legal in my state. Even though I prefer CC its not absolutely a must. I wasn't saying that I'm against SD or guns. I'm just not as comfortable about having my gun owner status known at the local level. Seems like, if worse case scenario happens, and any items are confiscated then they have a nice compiled list to start with on a door to door search.

Now there are even more threats against your life and safety. It's even more important now.

Why do you think so many more people are getting them recently.

I'm just taking a stab here but I think he might be inferring that the gov now knows you own a weapon should any confiscation occur.

In AZ it is now legal to carry concealed without a CCW however it does help bypass some ATF hoops.

I do have my AZ CCW and have no regrets but we don't register specific weapons on our license here either.

They already have the lists. With private sales its possible that you can own a gun without ever filling out a background check. So in essence, you only have to be on a compiled list if you choose to be.

Not one little bit. Nor do I care too much about if my permit was made public like some newspaper did back east. I don't like the invasion of privacy, but it does tell the bad guys who and who not to "rhymes with truck" with.

ThIs sounds like a whole new level of paranoia . Not at all. But I wonder what the people in Chicago are thinking? It being a real agenda of some politicians and talked about in more than one state make it something to at least consider. CCW permits, registration, ATF forms are all tools that make it easier for Big Brother to do what they want.

I don't have a big out bag, I didn't rush out to buy an AR15 and I have exactly one magazine full of SD ammo. I'm not paranoid just realistic.

The day anyone/anywhere starts house to house searches for firearms will be one of those days everyone will remember where they were and what they were doing when first heard the news.
Wife and I have had our CCW nearly since day one in AZ.
Sure is nice when buying new weapons, no checks/no waits.
No concern what so ever.
One person will resist, then two, then three, and the folks in DC will get scared, pass EMERGENCY LAWS, which will then drag in all of us law abiding folks and, presto, game on!
If you're worried, take your firearms list tonight, and to the right side in the margin, mark each firearm sold, date today.
After they hit a few homes, you'll be glad you told a "Liberty Lie", after that, it won't matter any longer, everything will change in the blink of the eye.
Start making a lot of local friends today.

No and I encourage any competent person to get one even if they don't own a gun or they're not going to carry.

It shouldn't be necessary though especially in a state that allows open carry.

In Ohio, just because you have a CCW permit, doesn't necessarily mean you own a weapon. I think one could reasonably assume you do but its not a guarantee. Lots of people out there with a drivers license that don't have cars.

Your thought processes are just fine, and the last thing you need to do is to spend a whole lot of effort justifying yourself to this bunch. :dunno:

You've explained your motivations once, and lucidly. You're merely examining all sides of an issue. In your place, I would ignore replies aimed at putting you on a defensive. :miff:

With regard to that newspaper in NY, since guns are on the "hot list" of home invasion specialists, that publication targeted those individuals and their families to an enhanced possibility of break-ins, by publishing their names and addresses, and the fact that there are guns are to be had at those locations. A-holes! :steamed:

It is with typical Libtard irony that the paper would hire armed defense for themselves, when those citizens infringed upon retaliated by publishing the names and addresses of the employees working at that newspaper. :upeyes:

We live in a society where a complete disconnect exists between cause and effect... In a society where everybody has their face buried in a personal information device most of the time, people, it seems, have never been dumber! :homer:

I would regret not having more guns than I have made some level of government aware that I have. A permit doesn't tell anyone what guns I have. It DOES add me to the statistic that is "people who are serious about using guns for self-defense".

If "The Man" comes for my gun(s), I will be prepared to fight or to sacrifice my pawns as appropriate. Until then, I'll gladly put my name in with those who stand for liberty and self-defense.

Yeah, Wisconsin has had “Open Carry” on the books for years... Our ex Ultra-Left, Big Union-Owned Governor Diamond—Make Me An Offer—Jim Doyle used to smirk when he'd robotically veto any CCW bill put in front of him, saying, "What's the big deal? Just open-carry your gun!", knowing full well you'd land yourself in jail if you tried it anywhere but out in the boondocks, and in need of a lawyer to get your gun back! Not to mention all the swell publicity you'd get portraying you as a Rightwing Gun-Nut! And by the bye, this said publicity cues home invasion specialists to target your residence for a possible break-in, since guns are near the top of the “Hot List" for thieves... :upeyes:

--Ray

P.S. Had Scott Walker not won the election and the recall election, despite the rampant voter fraud on the left, we would not have a CCW permit available in Wisconsin today! :thumbsup:

If you are worried about confiscation then buy a cheap gun from an FFL and then buy a quality gun off the books in a private sale.

If they do come for your registered weapon (form 4473), then you are only losing a cheap gun and they walk away thinking mission accomplished. You still have a weapon.

No regrets in getting my permit, although I can understand your position. In all the years that I've had my permit, I've never had to draw my weapon, show my permit to anyone, or identify myself as a CC'er while in public. My permit is just sitting in the back of my wallet as new as the day I got it.

But then again, I don't carry 99% of the time and I live and study in downtown Atlanta. But still, no regrets. It's worth it the few times I do carry.

While I fully understand the sentiment and thought process involved that goes along with the OPs post, the fact that we are here on GT (and other gunboards) automatically places each and every member on some list somewhere, just as the fact that I've filled out one or two 4473s in my life does.

Open carry is legal in my state. Even though I prefer CC its not absolutely a must.

I'm just not as comfortable about having my gun owner status known at the local level.

Are you figuring nobody will notice you open carrying if they start collecting guns?

No, I'm not kidding. I'm just saying with all the uncertainty and I read a lot on here that people don't trust anyone. Open carry is legal in my state. Even though I prefer CC its not absolutely a must.

I wasn't saying that I'm against SD or guns. I'm just not as comfortable about having my gun owner status known at the local level. Seems like, if worse case scenario happens, and any items are confiscated then they have a nice compiled list to start with on a door to door search.

:upeyes: No, but I do regret the necessity for people like me to have to carry a pistol. In a better world such a personal safety precaution wouldn't be necessary; however, we do not live in a, 'better world'.

As for the current trend for public officials and the organized news media to actively publish the names and addresses of everyone who legally owns a firearm and lives near a school building ....... ?

Why don't these troublemaking and grossly irresponsible media sensationalists simply send a certified letter to every nut case and lawbreaker in their respective communities about where a felon can go in order to find a gun!

The pertinent fact that you, or I own guns should NOT be a matter of readily available public record - Should not! No constructive social need is met by publishing such information. (Just the opposite, actually!) :steamed:

That is true.

I've thought about that too...if there was a confiscation, they could target the 1% with CCW permits first and gather up, say, 25% of all firearms floating around. This would remove a lot of the good weapons and the trained shooters first before moving onto everyone else.

I am a trained shooter, and I have good weapons. I'm not sure if your comment was meant to suggest that people with restricted permits are not as equally capable and equally armed, but I can assure you, some judges in NYS absolutely refuse to grant CCW unless you are LEO. They don't care how well trained or proficient you are.

No regrets about having a permit. I am not afraid that the government is going to guess I am a gun owner due to the fact that I have a CCDW. The fact that I have been buying guns for nearly 30 years, that I have multiple registered NFA items, that I spend large amounts of time surfing gun forums/sites, that I am a life member of the NRA and that I have repeatedly written and called elected officials concerning gun rights over the years all sort of indicate a possiblity that I might just own a firearm or two.
