Although each state varies in what is needed to be able to carry a concealed handgun it is a fairly simple progress as long as a background check comes back good, with no history of crime or use of addictive drugs. Being able to carry enables people to do things they wouldn’t even think of doing if they didn’t have a gun with them at all times. There are many suicides each year from people who carry or know someone who does or has a family member who carries. The ironic thing is that if people didn’t have the right to carry concealed handguns, most crimes, deaths and injuries would not happen because it would just be harder to get ahold of guns. Concealed handguns can easily cause the risk of unnecessary shootings. Disagreements will happen and instead of a possible fist fight a person 's anger can escalate and a gun could be pulled out and that disagreement or fight turns into a deadly shooting accident.

The concerns that the Anti-CC side have are concerns that are not exclusive to concealed carry- they also apply to regular gun ownership. Someone who legally owns a gun and keeps it in his or her home can shoot his or her spouse in the midst of a heated arguement.
First, the report states that “states have granted concealed carry permits to domestic abusers, criminals, the mentally ill, and suicidal individuals, among others.” This can be proven false right away, since to own a concealed carry permit, let alone most kinds of firearms in general. An applicant has to pass a background check. So anyone with a criminal record or who is mentally unstable won’t be able to receive a concealed carry permit. Later on, the report claims that in 29 instances, people used their concealed carry permits to carry out mass killings.

The second amendment states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Recently, the controversy of guns and gun control has been a huge topic of discussion. In the past few months, there have been multiple shootings, including two popular mass shootings such as the one in Las Vegas and the one at the high school in Florida.

Think about all the mass shootings that have occurred on in the world today and if people had the right to carry their concealed gun everywhere.

People who agree believe that no one should be able to own a gun, or that there should simply be stricter gun control laws.
