Should you get a concealed carry permit?

I remember when Texas first allowed people to get a concealed carry permit. I went and took the course, and was ready to send in all the paperwork, but then I thought: When they come to take our guns away who are they going to go after first?

So I decided to not send in my paperwork. At the time everyone was telling me I was paranoid. Now it is turning out that I was just a little bit ahead of things.  Here are a few recent news stories:
