This is a discussion on I can't believe my brother acted like this..... within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by INccwchris Really guys, is having a gun on you so important that having it is more important than being able to visit ...
I'm headed back over there on Wednesday to help his wife with some stuff while he's at work. I figure I'll mention the range trip idea while I'm over there. She likes to shoot, so hopefully she can push the idea to him. Besides, she's all for me carrying and I think she's actually more comfortable with my firearm competency than his. Hopefully this can be a learning experience for all involved.

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
BINGO----thats it in a nutshell(pun intended) Im with sigguy on both his posts, I would have left, with saying to him call me when you're ready to appologise, I'll do just about what anybody ask's whan it come to my sidearm(I carry just about 24/7) just be civil about it. Get rude I'll be rude back. To get respect you have to give respect its sad that a BIG portion of our brethren has forgoten this, and the younger they are they think its a given automatic right not earned.

retsupt, that really made me laugh, thanks for that.
"The value you put on the lost will be determined by the sacrifice you are willing to make to seek them until they are found."
Some men have reactions to their wife's pregnancy. They gain weight and even have mood swings. It is possible that this had something to do with his reaction. Especially if his behavior seemed unusual to you. Or as others mentioned there could be some other stress he is under. Is it possible his wife laid down the law with him about guns before you got there, but she wouldn't say anything directly to you? I have known couples before where one spouse makes the other the heavy.
Sounds like my brother. I can't fix stupid.
One day, I pulled out a gun and layed it down (we were outside at our farm & I layed it down on a picnic table) , then sat down and began watching it. He asked what the hell I was doing, I told him...... waiting to see if it will go off by itself like you seem to think it will. It hasn't done anything yet, but I'm waiting. He seemed to get the point, and he's retired from the Army. LOL.
Recently, something came up while we were out there and his first comment .... " I hope you have your gun on you". I couldn't pass that up, and asked where his was .... at home in the closet ? I told him I wasn't his friggin bodyguard.

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
I really have no idea what would cause him to act like that. He did have a rough week at work, but that kind of thing has never seemed to affect him before.
