Ask Amy about Open Carry
« on: October 16, 2017, 11:34:05 AM »
Dear Amy: My brother-in-law and I don't have a particularly good relationship, and one of the sticking points is gun ownership.

He believes in the right to carry (openly), and I think guns should be carried only by police.

Every time I ask him not to bring guns near our family (we have three young children), he gets unbelievably offended.

Dear Concerned Dad:

I grew up with guns and hunting and still live in a local culture where some kids (and parents) play hooky for the first day of hunting season. But all responsible gun owners use gun safes, and that is where they keep their deadly weapons, not slung on their hips.

Chicago.  And Chicago Tribune.  Although it looks like it is syndicated out of Texas, which makes sense because Illinois doesn't allow OC.

I'm not sure where "Amy" lives, but she's syndicated by the Chicago Trib and she claims to be an NPR contributor.
Anyway, that column shows that she likes guns almost as much as the old Abigail Van Buren / Ann Landers duo.
