Nearly as polarizing as the question of abortion, there are really only two positions available on personal ownership of firearms:
1. Anyone not specifically prohibited (by arbitrary prohibition standards set by the State) may possess any firearm.Concealed Carry is an offshoot of the argument. Permits for CC serve no purpose, unless it's part of an illegal effort to catalog gun owners. Those who intend to use a gun illegally don't worry about the permit.
2. Anyone not specifically authorized to do so (by arbitrary prohibition standards set by the State) may not possess any firearm.
