Should people be able to carry concealed weapons?

Concealed weapons should be open carry and not hidden because as a human being to know who around them is carrying a gun, also stores and restaurants should know who in there business is carrying a weapon and from that point decide if they let them in or not.

About Gun Control

In Texas you have to be at the very least 21 to own a hand gun. How ever if you are a convicted felon you are not allowed to carry a weapon. A fun fact i didn't know about until this research project is a weapon does not have to be under your name. However i think it should be due to pin point crimes. Also a person cannot carry a weapon even with an open carry listen if they are intoxicated due to the fact that they would not be in the right state of mind. People can carry a weapon inside of there car for safety purposes even without a gun listens. But there are requirements such as they cannot be a member of a street gang or cannot be convicted of anything higher than a class c misdemeanor.
