This is a discussion on MSN story and poll on concealed carry within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Read this story on CCW today and thought I would share. There is also a poll on the subject. Surprising results so far. Story Poll...
Sorry, apparently I am a little slow. The poll is still up and running though.
With guns, we are 'citizens'.
Without them, we are 'subjects'.
That was funny, the MSM talking about private property and states' rights. It seems that the world is full of utilitarians, though. Its all about "are the effects positive or negative?" I, for one, do not care. It is wrong to deprive people of the ability to defend themselves. Even if more permits meant drastically more crime, it would still be wrong to take away the defense options of innocent people.
Some of the individual comments on the poll made me shake my head... I guess I just do not understand the mentality of some people. If someone is a hothead and they go off, IMHO they're going to use whatever is available to them.
Did my part
The Dalai Lama:"If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun."
Voted. Right now it is:
Very safe: If a crime is committed or a threat of violence made, they’ve got the means to respond.
In danger: These people could be trigger-happy yahoos or stumblebums whose weapon might go off by accident.
Not sure: How would we know? Wouldn’t it depend on the state laws involved and circumstances?

You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
1) Call someone with a gun.
2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man
Maybe if the libs bought a gun, they wouldnt be so dang intimidated and uncomfortable all the time. How about they dig thier shorts out of their crack and stop making biggoted remarks about "rednecks". Funny how the diverse and tolerant crowd can be so down on one group... WHITE MEN! Just read the comments....
My GLOCK goes BANG every time!
