To the Editor:

Hey, folks, are you ready for the new Wild West?

If you haven’t read the new concealed-carry bill, it allows a permit-holder to carry a handgun “concealed or partially concealed.”

There’s nothing stating what partially means. Can it be in a holster?

Is this bill really intended to allow open carry? If so, look for a lot of would be John Waynes bellying up to the bar at your favorite restaurant.

Yee haw!
