<No, SYG and unchecked concealed carry allow people to rationalize walking around packing as a matter of "personal safety". As a result they feel empowered to put themselves in situations that their own common sense tells them to avoid.

That's ridiculous. First off, most casual citizens aren't aware of the letter of every law. Secondly, normal people, and 99.9% of gun owners, don't go looking around for reasons to shoot people.

So if we're talking about 0.1% (or less) of citizens, we're talking about the fringe elements who are going to do what they're going to do regardless. Your solution is to punish everyone else.
