While I quite agree with most of your post, I am perplexed by the
statement quoted from your post above. I am curious as to why you
beleive that a citizen (whether a BSA volunteer or executive) who
might request and receive a Texas concealed weapons permit
(or any other state) to legally carry a firearm, would "not bode well".
If a person carrying a firearm concealed, had a CCW, that would
instead be evidence of good citizenship, for he would be consciensiouly
obeying the laws of his state..... although I thought Texas had recently
(in the past five years) passed a law allowing certain concealed weapons
without a permit. (perhaps a Texan could answer that for us)
If the situation with Mr. Ratcliffe is as stated in the news reports, then
he does not present the kind of role model I think BSA deserves to
have in its top position....
