Gun permits not reassuring

It’s reassuring to know that, according to Rob Leach (July 12), should I find myself seated next to a patron legally carrying a loaded firearm at a concert or game at a Spokane public facility, I should have no worries because that person, instead of being an unstable paranoid as I might first assume, is sure to be responsible and would never use the firearm in an aggressive manner, but only for defensive purposes.

However, as I have only Leach’s word for that, and as I have no wish to become collateral damage, I would skedaddle quickly from the venue and ask for my money back.
