For Wilmington lawyer John J. Thompson, the question of whether Delaware should make it easier for law-abiding residents to get a permit to carry a concealed handgun is a simple one. "You ought to be able to defend your life and the life of your loved ones. I think that's a basic human right," said Thompson, who holds a concealed-carry permit and is president of the Delaware State Sportsmen's Association. For the Rev.

Most of us wouldn't drive our cars without a spare tire or venture out in a Wisconsin snowstorm without a set of jumper cables and a few bags of cat litter in our vehicles. Responsible drivers don't drive one mile without car insurance. And most of us carry all sorts of life, casualty, health and other insurance. Yet the state of Wisconsin for more than 100 years has told respectable, law-abiding citizens that they just can't carry a concealed handgun. Gov. Jim... (GunPolicy.org)
