I feel compelled to respond to Mike Hawksley’s letter concerning concealed weapons. I think it’s admirable that Mike felt the need to tell Progress readers of his deep and terrible fear of life.

It seems that Mike believes someone will shoot him on the way to class, or “molest, rape or kill” his children, or “brutally beat, kick and rob” his grandparents.

I have no doubt Mike also lives in mortal fear of being hit by lightening, a train, a heart attack or a piece of space junk falling out of the sky.
