Concealed Weapons Carry Permit and Older People
I know this has nothing to do with cars, but I thought I would share a humorous story.
I am at the receptionist counter of a medical clinic and a dear old couple emerge from the back consulting room. He is humped over using a cane. Probably mid 80's or early 90's in age. Very feeble and walking very slowly ... but a dear older gentleman. She is a few years younger than he. Maybe late 70's or early 80's. She too has some mobility problems. But, they are just a dear and wonderful older couple and they help each other with some of their mobility challenges that they are facing in their later years.
As they get to the receptionist, they greet me and we begin a casual conversation. They were visiting the audiology clinic (as I was) and in the conversation she exclaims how excited they both are about going to a concealed weapons carry class on Saturday. I tried to hide my surprise and wished them a good time.
As much as I respect the elders in our community, one cannot but wonder if carrying a concealed weapon is something that need or will be a benefit to them.
