Criminals and Permits 

Criminals and Permits

Just a random thought today. Critics are complaining that by having concealed carry laws that require "only" a background check more criminals are getting carry permits.

Not that I want criminals to be using guns, but isn't that actually good if they get permits? Now if they commit a crime they have more information on the criminal than they did before.

Besides, if someone is a criminal wouldn't it be likely that they have a record, and therefore couldn't get a permit? (And if it was a felony they aren't supposed to have a why are they getting a permit?)

In any case I still find it really hard to imagine someone saying "Oh, I haven't gotten my permit yet. I guess I won't take my gun to the robbery today."

Comment Isn't it a good idea to get more guns off the streets? If there are fewer guns, then there are fewer guns for criminals too. So it would be safer for everyone if there were fewer guns. Doesn't that make sense?
