All but four states allow people to carry concealed handguns, says the Associated Press. AP writer Anita Chang desccribed why she considered seeking a permit and the choice she finally made. Chang was one of 17 students in a 12-hour class to become eligible to apply for a concealed handgun permit. An Ohio resident, Chang notes that Ohio requires guns to be hidden when you’re in public, except if you plan to carry it on your body in the car – where it must be in plain sight.
Chang paid $45 and got the concealed carry license. She concludes: “I feel better – safer – with the license. Maybe one day I’ll change my mind and get a gun, too.”
