Who said anything about arming everyone to the teeth?
Yes anyone can have guns but to carry them concealed you have to have a permit.
How to Get a Permit to Carry a Concealed Weapon in Nebraska
Nebraska is a "shall issue" state as of January 3, 2007. A carry and conceal weapon (CCW) permit will be issued to anyone who qualifies. The issuing authority is the Nebraska State Police. The following steps will show how to obtain a CCW license in Nebraska.Many states have even stricter requirements. These "gun free zones" try and block everyone from having a gun on the premises including those with permits and officers of the law. The only ones they can't block from carrying a gun legally is on duty police, even their own security isn't armed. Soooo why are they going to "gun free zones"? Because there is no one there to stop them. Sheesh.
Complete an approved handgun training and safety course (or equivalent military training) within three years before you apply for the permit. The fee is determined by the instructor and the length is usually between eight and 16 hours. Fill out an application form and get it notarized.
Apply in person at the Criminal Identification Division of the State Patrol or one of the Nebraska State Police offices. Bring the application form, training certificate, photo ID, proof of citizenship, proof of vision requirement and the permit fee.
Show that you are a United States citizen by submitting a birth certificate, naturalization papers, certificate of citizenship or a United States passport. The vision requirement can be met by showing your driver's license or a note by a Nebraska ophthalmologist stating that you qualify for a Class O driver's license.
Receive your permit in about two weeks if you pass the criminal background check. Renew your permit every five years by paying the renewal fee. You will not need to take a training course again if you renew your permit before it expires.
Inform peace officers that you are carrying a concealed weapon.
Now tell me honestly, what would happen if one of these guys walked into a monster truck rally and started shooting?
@gwenibe you are still not considering the "hot crime" rates. These crimes are committed everywhere. The difference is how cautious the criminals need to be and why. I love your idea of ending crime, now what do we do in the meantime?
