Letter: Concealed weapons

June 7, 2014 

I truly appreciated the comment Bob Udell of the Yakima Sheriff's Office made in a June 2 article regarding concealed weapons permits.

Those of us who have concealed pistol permits are not the enemy. Attempting to take away guns from law-abiding citizens will result in only criminals having guns. As Udell so eloquently stated in the article, "When we have issues with firearms, it's not with law-abiding citizens who've gone through the process to get a concealed pistol license."
