That must have been where I went wrong.
Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
I always carry, 'cause like my momma always says, "life is like a box of chocolates..............."

Apparently I'm stupid enough to read this thread. Last one in the door, I can carry, but not everyone is as good as me, or should blah blah blah.
It is a guaranteed right for EVEYONE. Get over it already.
I know a few people that IMO shouldn't be walking around with a gun but it's there right to do so and I just avoid hanging out with them.
I had to sit through a handgun class at the county sheriff's office in order to get my concealed carry permit. (Nobody in the cop shop bothered to tell me that veterans didn't need to fork over $20 and take the class).
The class was pretty routine firearm safety stuff and some pretty good info on shooter rights/responsibilities here in Oregon, so I ended up being OK about having to take the class.
What surprised me afterwards was the hour of utterly stupid questions from some of the other people in the class. Some of those people were so dumb I was amazed that they could find their way to the class, much less carry a gun. Until that time, I had only really considered the issue of me carrying a weapon. I came away reminded that there are some real armed morons in our midst. Sobering thought.
Women also have their ways: my aunt burned the first shirt my uncle asked her to iron.
Hey no way am I stupid cause I was able to load my brand new spiffy S&W Model 36...... Sure I had to use a hammer to get them in.... Maybe it was cause the .45 caliber ammo was on sale......

Sometimes i think im smart.....when my knuckles aren't dragging on the ground.
The easy way is always mined.
Dont consider myself too stupid to carry. But nobody ever considers themselves stupid. Bing open minded, able to learn and able to change and adapt is a good start for not being stupid - been working on that stuff for awhile now. I think since I even started to consider carrying I have learned A WHOLE LOT and opened myself up to alot more information and knowledge.
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
Good comment here from Doodle:
And it looks like most readers here understood the intent of the article's author. But some members of this board have said, repeatedly, that if they have to draw, they are going to fire.Once the threat is stopped stop using force.
Any regular reader of Armed Citizen can attest, along with anyone familiar with Gary Kleck's research, that most defensive uses of a firearm do not result in someone being shot.
Drawing your weapon means that you're ready to shoot, but if you are in control of your firearm then you have control over everything that happens from the moment you clear leather. The person you draw on has choices to make that affect the final outcome. Statistically speaking, it appears that the majority of such persons decide that being shot isn't in their best interest. The minority get to learn what being shot at is like.

Come on Constitutional carry.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
