three sections Sunday May Concealed weapon law stirs debate Serving Comal County for more than 143 years Home of CODY ORONA I Vol 143 No 141 By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer The bill allowing licensed and trained Texans to carry a concealed handgun was signed by Gov George W Bush Friday and permit processing will begin September 1 However local reaction to the bill is mixed Comal County Sheriff Jack Bremer said he is opposed to the bill because there is a possibility that it could cause more problems He said there is a ten dency to want to help the police How ever he said officers will have a hard time telling who is the criminal when walks onto a scene and sees two people holding guns He is also con cerned about the training people will receive They will have background checks and only people with clean records will get licensed But I havent heard any thing about a psychological he said Bremer said he is also concerned that people with short tempers will be able to carry a gun He said this could lend itself to more shootings Its much easier to reach under your coat and get a gun when youre angry than it is to drive home and get Bremer said Officers are already cautious when they approach a vehicle he said But now they will have to use extra caution He said it will make law enforcement even harder I would rather people have guns and carry them out in the open on their belt because then youll know who has one and where its he said Some citizens are opposed to the bill as well 1 understand why some responsi ble people want to be allowed to carry a concealed weapon but I dont think it will be good for us If I were the gov ernor I wouldnt do said Judy Miller of 222 Canterbury I just dont think people should have them Theres too many people that dont know how to handle them and too many explosive said Georgia Rollo of 7 Wildwood Trail These are people who are totally level headed and totally law abiding 1 stress that the people who will be per mitted will be people with records that are virtually said Mike Can tuWithoff owner of Docs Guns CantuWithoff said the bill should also serve as a deterrent to crime He said he has already had people coming in to the shop to look at guns they may want to buy He said this was an excel lent opportunity for women working at night to feel safer Howard Dietz owner of Dietz Gun Shop and Range said he completely favored the bill because a lot of people are already carrying guns and now it will just give them an opportunityto do it legally Besides 1 dont think it will change the crime situation much If anything it will lower it because itll give a lot of those punks something to think Dietz said Some citizens favored the bill saying it would give people a sense of safety I think its a good idea because more of the right people will have one I think well see a lot less crime because people will be able to stop said Kim Smith of Seguin Weve always had guns around and if you want to carry one while youre on the road you should be able said Marilyn Shepherd of 850 HW 46 S HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Honoring those who served Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the
