procurement of such a dangerous weapon, then these people's right to
safety has priority over the bomb owner's right to have this particular
weapon for self defense? Or would this not be preventive, but only
retroactive with him/her being held responsible only after his weapon has
already caused harm to his neighbours?
- Of course not--as should be obvious. The whole "concealed carry" flap is an irrelevant detail, and a distraction from the main issue. If you have to seek a "why" for this particular wrinkle of the ongoing legislative issue, it can be mostly found in the desire of at least some of the voters of the various states to find some way to counteract the out-of-control fanaticism of the federal government.
As always, note the larger picture, which gun prohibition proponents would rather not have brought up side-by-side with these points: Government agents have been free, and feeling perfectly free, all along, to carry concealed weapons, in all 50 states--including states like Colorado, whose state constitution *explicitly* bans the carrying of concealed weapons. They didn't have a big public debate leading up to passing a statute giving themselves this option; they just started doing it and, in essence, telling anyone in the public who might object: "What are *you* going to do about it?"
