never drink and have a gun on you

Granted that I'm 20 years old and I have to wait about 2 months to legally drink regardless, I grew up in a dry house hold. My Dad has always told me that booze is an expensive habit (like smoking) and that he only drinks if it's free...like if we were at a company outing or something at a ball game and they would hand out free beer tickets. Ignoring my age I don't drink anyways. If there's glass bottles in the fridge it's probably IBC soda.
Google this phrase and look at the results that come up....
shooting, alchohol involved
........a liberal media field day. And make no mistake....we are not the only ones reading responses on this forum, been there, have the freaking t-shirt.

My wife's grandmother refused to touch a gun, and lived to 97. It must be her refusal to risk being around guns resulted in her longevity.
My grandmother never ate carrots and lived into her 90s. It must be that carrots result in early death.
All drug addicts drank milk as children. Milk is a gateway drug.
Correlation =/= causation.
He chooses to support our 2nd Amendment and our Constitution, what is wrong with being a patriot and a real American? He has not stopped living his life, unless I am misinterpreting the meaning of what you are saying. Please explain.
Man killed in Florida over a cigarette. I would argue that the desire for a cigarette on behalf of a tobacco smoker is just as bad as the desire for a hit of crack by a crackhead. Here are some more links over people murdering others over the evil scourge of tobacco that threatens our beautiful nation.
Here we see a man ready to commit acts of violence over a cup of coffee to get his "fix" for the dangerous drug Caffeine. It is terrible and shocking.
Apparently Caffeine like Alcohol can cause mental problems and I don't think people should carry or even have so much as a drop of coffee or any substances containing a substance as dangerous as caffeine in it.
I am sure you would agree, right?
I've never understood any zero tollerance policies or mindthoughts. Live is far too many shades of gray for absolutes. Fortunately in Nevadaw we do not have this problem. Our laws were never updated for the. 08 BAC for driving, so were legal in public at 1.0 and no limit at home.
In Switzerland it isn't unusual to have a glass of wine or two prior to a match, shoot (amazingly without injury), and then have dinner and more wine at the range.
If one or two beers turns you into an idiot or *******, you're most likely an idiot or ******* sober, and no one can help you with that.
With this being said, I'll carry to dinner and have a beer with my Burger without giving it a second thought. If I have to use my firearm to defend myself the presence of alcohol won't turn a good shoot into a bad one all by itself.
If you want to drink and carry, stay at home. You can always carry OC spray if you're drinking (in certain states). Bars are bad news anyways, nothing good ever happens.
...Not sure who I'm saying this to :/

If a gun can make you behave and act more mature, then surely it can make you act more immature and become a more dangerous and violent person? Right? I read so many posts stating that people are acting more mature and not getting into confrontations as well as avoiding conflict, why weren't they doing this before?
And my uncle is a patriot. I have read on a few forums that people won't go to their family members homes because those family members do not want them to carry. My uncle is the same way, he doesn't go somewhere if he can't carry. How is it different then people who don't go to bars because they cannot carry or go to certain stores or businesses because carry is not allowed? He is the same way and I just named some examples that I remember him telling me that he could not come because of the carry laws in place. I just happened to be at the wedding and the death of my great aunt. I am sure he didn't come to a few baseball games because of it but I wasn't there to ask him. I don't see why it is such a big deal to you, so please enlighten me.
Not carrying could lead to death? I hate to break it to you, but everything we do leads to death. Personally, I put family and faith way above the Second Amendment, but that's just me.
