    A good afternoon,

    What a great afternoon. My friends and I went to the field where we target practice and brought along a novice. As a matter of fact she had never shot a gun ...... that is until this afternoon. She did well. We started out with gun safety and before long she was popping the targets. She had a great time and has signed up for concealed carry next month.

    THE BEST PART (although a little worrisome) She is a life long anti gun bleeding heart person (she is in her 50s). Why is that a little worrisome. Because she thinks the world is getting bad enough that people should arm themselves. Things must be worse than I thought.

    It is worse than you thought.

    All of a sudden people are figuring out that the world is getting crazier by the day.

    I was a Leftist democrat, then I voted for Obama, realized I wasted a vote, because all the great things never came to fruition. Now I am an untrusting Moderate, I disagree with the left and the right equally. But I can agree on one thing, the world is getting %#$@% scary, so I bought some personal protection and have already sent in my CCW App. SO yes, things are bad.

    Very good point. It's something we tend to forget all to often.

    Druff, You are a courageous man. Like you I was equally disgusted with my party, except I was a republican. Now I am an untrusting unaffiliated.

    Beans, I did read Doonesbury and have been pondering it. I suspect most of those gun deaths were not caused by law abiding citizens killing someone

    Amen brother..

    Chalk me up as another PRO GUN "bleeding heart". Yes, we do exist.

    And I don't know if things are getting worse or if things have just always been worse than many realize.

    After the night shift that I pulled on Friday, my vote is that it is getting worse.

    If things get bad here, party affiliation goes out the window. We are Americans and I believe these freedoms are worth defending.

    Be careful what you wish for; you might get it.
    So you finally realized a politician is a politician, or are you still wishing?

    I also voted for Obama, woopsie! I was young and dumb and wanted change, I got what I asked for and do not care for the change that happened.
