I prefer to have those carrying concealed be screened with a background check. Then you know the person is clean. Cop rolls up on and sees that you have a CCW. He thinks....he's on my side. Not the case if everyone is carrying. Just the hassle to get one makes sure that only those interested in personal safety and are responsible carry concealed. Hurdles are there for a reason other than to hassle us. They thin the herd.
