Abbreviating a potentially extensive discussion to its more rudimentary point: Carrying a firearm in a purse entails the real dangers that a purse will be stolen from its owner, consequently disarming the owner and arming the theif, who is then empowered to endanger his initial victim, and, all and any elements of the public. Endangering self and/or others is among the clinical definitions for insanity. Conclusion: Carrying a firearm in a purse is a palpable and greivous - life & death - danger to self and others. Truly Yours is in agreement with any who are averse to the introduction of laws restricting firearms ownership and carrying, but: those (anti-gun lobbyists) who would deprive gun owners and CCWs of their rights may arm themselves with any and all incidents of 'purse snatching' which leads to arming criminals and disarming the law abiding public, particulary when the subjected theft measurably results in the injury or death of the initial victim, or any element of the vulnerable public. Conclusion: Carrying a firearm 'on your person' should be a requirement for all CCWs, in the name of the safety of the firearms carrier, and, the public at large.
