Concealed Carry

   This is a quote from Cesare Beccaria a well known lawyer of his day in Italy, circa 1770’s. Thomas Jefferson borrowed portions of this quote himself, that says allot.

{“ False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides. for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man”}

   Note; Why is it that men of Cesare Baccaria’s day could understand this as the simple truth, yet this truth is utterly lost on the politicians of today? Has intelligence not advanced? Men have gone to the moon, computers are on the scene to stay, medicine has lengthened lives, technology advances in leaps and bounds, but politicians are now clueless?
