Maine recently eliminated its licensing requirement to carry a concealed gun, but it comes with little-known exceptions and some confusion in the reciprocal bordering state of New Hampshire.

Pete Nagy had been wanting to get his concealed pistol license so he could protect himself and anyone around him if someone ever started shooting.

But his wife wasn’t enthusiastic about him spending a day away from the family to take the pistol safety training course required by Michigan law.

Then, in mid-November, terrorists unleashed bloodshed in Paris, killing more than 100, and a few weeks later in San Bernardino, California, where 14 people were gunned down at a holiday party.

“Now she’s giving me the blessing,” said Nagy, a Bloomfield Hills resident and financial adviser who took a training class earlier this month.

Part of the progressive playbook is to make gun owners seen different than the general public. The media gives us a comic-book view of guns in society. In fact, gun owners are everywhere. Gun owners look like us.

It is the mainstream media who is elitists and out of touch.

Second Amendment: Civil Liberties Must Be Respected, Including Gun Rights

The failure to defend the civil liberties of one is a failure to defend the civil liberties of all. This is particularly true when it is inconvenient or offensive to do so. For the sake of ease and self-interest, it is tempting to simply reason away the rights of others, or even deny their existence, yet the failure to defend the freedoms of others undermines the freedoms of everyone.

When it comes to addressing gun violence, the need to balance Second Amendment rights with gun control measures is no different.

As the judge read off Mejia's laundry list of charges, including five attempted murder charges, Mejia took offense to the fact that his charges were non-bondable offenses, CBS Miami reports.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
