LTE: Limits on concealed carry are just what criminals want

Replying to your May 11 article of banning guns from parks.
A citizen who has obtained a license to legally carry a concealed handgun may be your neighbor, friend or family member and has accepted the responsibilities associated with the license and is an ally of law enforcement.
Would a park be a safer place if it were illegal to carry a concealed handgun? Probably not.
Common sense tells us the legally licensed would be the only ones to comply.
Nefarious persons will continue to carry weapons where and when they choose in spite of all the laws governments impose.
Limiting the places a handgun can be legally carried is exactly what the criminal wants.
LTE: Banning guns in city parks makes sense
