Just what I needed to hear to feel safer.
 
Applications for "concealed-carry" permits are soaring in many U.S. states: http://on.wsj.com/12LO4zD

Thirty-nine states, 10 more than in 2002, grant permits to anyone who meets a few basic requirements, such as proof of residency.

What do you think the impact will be if more people are carrying weapons?

Introduction
Ron Marcus has been eating, breathing and sleeping branding and marketing for over twenty years. (View his CV »)

He got his bachelors in Marketing at San Diego State University in 1989. In the ’90s, he held Manager and Director of Marketing Communications positions at several high tech companies. After he got his MBA at the University of Redlands in 2000, Ron led marketing communications at two more startup tech firms before launching Epiphany Marketing, a boutique branding firm, in 2003.

Over the next five years, the Epiphany team created brands and communications in multiple media for clients large and small, B2B and B2C, in many industries.

Ron has always had a keen interest in entertainment  as well as branding. In 2007, Ron realized an exciting opportunity to create an online TV show about San Diego lifestyle and entertainment. He launched Shindy.TV in the fall of 2007.

After a successful six-year run, the team at Epiphany Marketing disbanded in April 2009, with team members moving on to pursue individual careers. After subsequently spending six months working full time as interim brand manager for local tech company MIR3, Inc., in November '09 Ron expanded his brand consulting practice, renamed Shindy Media, to service a wide variety of clientele. (View current client list »)
