Well I can respect his right not to act when attacked and I feel that he should respect my right to defend what is mine by all mean necessary. I guess what bugs me most about the antis is they feel like they have to tell everybody what to do and if you don't agree you are wrong- I don't run around and tell everyone that they HAVE TO own a gun or carry a gun or HUNT or FISH if they don't want to do any of these thing that is fine by me!! So why do they feel the need to jump on my backside evry time they have an opinion-- I have more but I'm to worked up to type SHOOT!!!  >:(

Isn't it wierd that people like this Boss are usually the people that get promoted to positions like that!!!  While the regular common sense using work force just does their duties and does not get promoted!!!  What would happen to this country if only good people that promoted and ran the country!!!  Maybe us good ones need to work harder to get into positions that we would have an affect on the outcomes of situations like this!!!  I carry when I feel my life depends on it and the law states other wise...when the law is on my side I carry everywhere.  I am glad there are people like you guys out there that feel the same way as me!!!

I would much rather have my gun and not need it, than need my gun and not have it. I carry everywhere I am allowed to, you just never know when the feces hits the air circulator.

Thats what I keep saying.  Everyone asks me "what are the chances of that happening?".  Bad, I hope.  But if that chance comes around, I'll be ready

Chuck, I've been carrying for many years now.  Have I ever pulled my gun? Nope.  Will I ever have to? I very seriously hope that never happens.  Will I if I have to?  In a "dead" minute!  My life and the lives of those I care about have a value far above those who think they can take them.  If they try, I am a firm believer in saving money (but I doupt the justice system will send me a letter about how much I saved them in their corrections budget).  The law states that you can only shoot enough to prevent further threat...  I will not "print" what I deem "further threat", it's a definition of interpitation. 

A gun is just a tool.  A mind is the weapon.  A criminal mind is a disease.

...Hope your boss doesn't have to test his theory... A criminal's tool might just open his mind to the wrong kind of light.

I always tell people that "chance favors those who are prepared".  A friend of mine told me that one time and I like it so much that is what I use when people call me paranoid and crazy!  It may never happen, I say, but what if it does...what are you going to do then?  If you don't mentally and physically prepare yourself for combat or anything really how can you expect yourself to preform well?...and by well I mean survive!  I think that people who live in a fantasy world of "it will never happen to me" are the ones who are crazy...they think that evil is just a made up thing that film makers thought up to make money in the theaters.  Well I have been around long enough to see evil...with my own eyes in some parts of the world and I will tell you that it is most defintally real and in this world!!!  I don't care who tells me otherwise!  I think everyone should carry firearms...it is their God given right to self defense and people who try to take that away are trying to harm you or your family!  I will never be sorry for owning and carrying firearms and woe to whoever tries to take them away from me and harm my family!!!  But I know I am preaching to the choir on this one...

In talking with someone with this point of view, you probably won't change their train of thought. But think back at all the school shootings, shootings in college campuses,  the shooting in Philly, what if one qualified person had been carrying and taken a shot to end the killings. Would they deny that person the chance to protect their life and that of the lives of others? God is Great, Beer is good, and People are crazy!!!!
At the age of 12 I began being my step dad's personal driving crew. I spent two years trouncing thru creek beds, woods, draws yelling, clapping and singing to jump deer.
The remaining 39 years I've been learning and loving the great outdoors that we all are blessed with.

Their logic only makes sense to them ie; if there were no guns people wouldn't kill other people. They refuse to realize that since the invention of gunpowder, firearms have continually evolved and man will always continue to improve on what is currently available. If firearms were not available, humans would find something else to use as a weapon. History shows this. Most of these people forget that even though firearms have been illegal in NYC for many years, many used to make their own "zip guns" to use. They fail to acknowledge the fact that people are the dominant factor in the equation and firearms are only tools and like any tool that is misused, they will do serious damage. Denial just makes them feel better. @--0--0117

Here is the BEST example of how our "leaders" think......

I recently flew commercial airlines to WY to my son's wedding.
Had to half strip, remove shoes, have everything x-rayed and do just about eveything.....all in the name of safety and security.......

Little background, I'm a Retired Viet Nam vet, and currently a police officer.....need I say more in regards to how many different ways/techniques I know to end your life....without guns, knives or bombs......

So after all this what do they do when we reach cruising altitude??????

HAND ME AN ALUMINUM CAN OF COKE ! ? ! ? !

For those not grasping the stupidity of this.......
You flatten the can, bend it in the middle a few times and you have not one but TWO prefect slashing type weapons which are more than adequate to cut/kill anyone.

Now lets talk about guns killing people...........   --099-780
Give me a break.
Courage is not about medals.
It's simple, you run towards the gun fire not away from it.     Semper Fi....

Aside from a coke can...with all the hoopla about MMA these days you think that people out there don't know twist someones head until it pops?  Don't take too much pressure for that to happen!  I, like you, am a military police officer as well as an instructor for the army's ground fighting school.  I mean there are so many things that they ban but yet they let you take pens...towels...cords for electronic devices...etc.  And people think they are safe cause there might be an Air Marshell on board!!!  Sheep!!!  BAAAAAAHHHHHH
