Hayden, Idaho -a 2 year old boy accidentally reached in his mothers purse, a weapon discharged and his mother was killed. Veronica J. Rutledge, 29, (concealed weapons permit) was shopping with her son & 3 other children when this incident occurred. In a “civilized” society I can not understand the obsession to have guns at the airport, hip, bars/restaurants, etc. Gun laws should take into account public safety. While this is a tragedy, the incident could have resulted in the compromised safety of any shopper at Walmart that day. Do weapons owners have the right to jeopardize others safety?

RIght-to-carry states are interesting studies, particularly when comparing crime rates with other states. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-...
Actually, if you were familiar with the statistics you would know that violent crime is decreasing, not increasing. It's just that the gun tragedies that do happen are more publicized now.
