Ted, is the guy some kind of cancer victim who is afflicted with a bunch of firearm-shaped tumors? You do realize that (even after this court decision) CCW applicants must still qualify for a gun license not too unlike how a law enforcer must qualify to pack, and wackadoodles like you've drawn above just won't make the grade.

You see, there are so many other laws that summarily disqualify many people -- such as felons, the mentally unstable, documented drug (ab)users -- from carrying firearms that are not affected by this new court ruling. Those "at-risk" people prohibited from (legally) carrying a firearm will still be prohibited.

Generally throughout the state, in order to qualify for a license to carry a concealed firearm, a resident must be at least 21 years old, undergo a background check, be of “good moral character (the catch-all phrase of perpetual prohibition, what is "less-than-good?"),” and complete a firearms training course (including paying all kinds of collateral fees and taxes). Legally packing a heater ain't for the economically challenged.

A whole lot more people may be applying, but that doesn't mean that a whole lot more will get licensed. Eventually, I'll bet that not too many more people end up becoming (legally) qualified to carry.

Also, regarding the comic above, your hyperbole doesn't quite pass the "clever" test.
