Too Stupid To Carry: How To Know When You’re A Bad Candidate For A Concealed Carry Permit
Sometimes, certain people just aren’t cut out to carry a firearm — let alone own one. It takes a certain type of person to own and carry, and it’s a responsibility that every single potential gun owner needs to consider.
Some need to ask themselves: “Am I too stupid to own/carry a firearm?”
If you’re teaching someone how to clear a firearm and negligently shoot them in the foot, you may be a bad candidate for a concealed carry permit.
If, after you negligently shot them in the foot, you then run away… you may be a bad candidate for a concealed carry permit.
A 34-year-old woman shot in the knee about 11:30 p.m. Saturday at East 68th Street and Fullerton Avenue. The man who shot her was talking about getting a concealed carry license for the gun, and was showing the woman how to clean the gun when it fired, police said. The man briefly helped the woman, then ran away. The woman and a witness both said the man is well known in the neighborhood, but neither could not give detectives his name. Police found a loaded handgun at the scene.
