I agree with you, concealed (or open) carry should be encouraged by the law instead of being allowed.
Still when I lived in Georgia, it was so easy (and cheap) to get a license that I could live with it quite happily.
They basically have to issue you a license unless you are a serial killer or something like that. The law needed a few kinks worked out and I have read that they indeed have corrected most of those minor points.
As far as I’m concerned, any man not in jail or prison should be free to carry a gun. If he’s too dangerous to carry, why the hell is he walking free.
