Above arguments aside, there’s a lot of reasons why carry permits aren’t reasonable. LOTS of reasons.
The initial one we’ll talk about is abuse of power. You have a lot of sheriff’s offices, police departments, etc. that absolutely do not approve carry permits for anyone that isn’t a cop, connected to a cop, or connected to a politician in some way. This turns it into the haves versus the have nots. That isn’t how rights are supposed to work.
To add insult to injury, not all states allow you to go to a friendlier jurisdiction to complete the application for getting your carry permit. Therefore, how far a person can exercise their inalienable rights can be determined by some fat ass sheriff who probably drives home drunk.
