I haven't applied for a concealed weapons permit here in Pennsylvania because I work from home. My gun is thirty feet from where I sit in my office (albeit across a hallway). Still, I've been thinking about getting one again simply for the times my wife and I venture to Pittsburgh (where getting lost and finding yourself in a bad neighborhood is quite an easy thing to do). This morning, Google's search-turned-RSS-feed (for articles that link to this blog) turned up this article.
I'm happy to say that I live in a state where the Pittsburgh local news runs a special news segment prior to deer season on choosing the best rifle. When I visited my grandma in Bedford, PA, I noticed a billboard advertising "Hunting for good real estate deals?" The image showed a female realtor, dressed in light camo, holding a rifle and peering into the distance.
But hey, according to the first commenter in the article linked above, people who carry handguns are just about the same as convicted sex criminals. Uh huh.
