Re "Dangerous court decision on concealed guns must be reversed" (Viewpoints, March 26): Catherine Stefani made one dangerous and unfounded assumption and repeated it several times as if it were fact. She stated that legal concealed carry is more appropriate in rural areas rather than in urban ones.
Can anyone tell me why this would be true? Could it be because of increased racial minorities in cities? No, that would be racist. Could it be that more affluent people live in rural areas? No, that would be classist. How about higher crime in cities? Wouldn't that be a problem above and beyond gun control? How about examining why crime is so much higher in cities? Seems like a problem that transcends guns to me. It is very important that the Second Amendment right of poor minority urbanites be recognized along with everyone else.
