The law against carrying concealed guns makes good sense. But so many women every year are killed by their abusive boyfriends and husbands. Restraining orders, as we know, can't stop them. The police often can't stop them. I don't know what the solution is. But something's wrong when, in trying to keep herself alive, the terrorized woman becomes the criminal.Ms. Ryan (the writer) doesn't mention any reasons why the law makes good sense. But in reading the rest of the paragraph, I think here is one reporter who is beginning to see the light. If someone were to take her to the range a couple of times and familiarize her with handguns, she might begin to change her mind.
