Where should I be allowed to carry?

2 gunsWhenever the subject of concealed carry comes up, the left always wants to restrict where and how people can carry.

One of the groups I believe benefit the most from concealed carry - or they would benefit if they took advantage of the laws - are women being stalked by ex-husbands, and ex-boyfriends. Abusive relationships often turn lethal after the woman tries to end the relationship.

Where do these women need to be able to carry? Where they are known to be. A set schedule, traveling to and from a known location, presents the most risk. These situations are:
  1. To and from work,
  2. Picking up and dropping off kids at school or day care,
  3. to and from religious services.
Yet these are just the places where carry is usually resisted, by employers or by the left, and in many cases restricted.

Other odd restrictions should also be lifted. Why does the US postal service have the power to infringe on my right to keep and bear arms any more than any other business? Why does the US park system have this power? (Am I free from risk in National Parks - no predators of 2 or 4 footed varieties?)
