DECLINING HOPLOPHOBIA: More anecdotal evidence. I conceal carry except on Shabbat, when the kippah and Glock are often in full view. I don't know what I have to be afraid of, though, except I was overcome visiting a Nazi concentration camp in 1986. I mean...overwhelmed in a way that hasn't ever left me. Wasn't Wiemar Germany a very civilized place? Never again. I'm a sheepdog. BTW, if you have never heard of Massad Ayoob, a national treasure from NH, you should check out his book In the Gravest Extreme. And living in NH is a blessing from G-d: I will never, ever register my firearms. Just like I won't tell the gubmit where I go to worship. None of its business. It's usually the visitors from southern New England states that freak out seeing open carry of firearms. You know, places where the crime is much higher back home. I guess they haven't made the connection.
