Watch who you tell about guns and CC
As times have changed, I realize that it's in my best interest to keep quite about letting others that I know about guns and CC.
Not sure if you feel this way? But I do.
Around here in the Puget Sound area there are plenty of people that are anti gun. Especially towards handguns and concealed carry. Most of them I feel are under educated about the subject, but I'm tired of trying to educate them as their minds are already made up. And they get PO'd since I have a different view and they can't convience me that guns are only for "killing"
My best friend knows I CC and seems to like to boast about it to everyone he runs into. Example when out scocializing if the topic of guns gets brought up. He starts running his mouth about what I carry and my collection of guns. Same if someone starts acting like a jerk around me. I feel like telling him to STFU about it!! And if I want someone to know, I'll tell them myself:aargh4:
I also never mention to co-workers either now. I got a job with a company a few years ago (no longer work there) through a friend. He mentioned to one of the other guys that I had a gun collection. A few months later one of the guys gets PO'd and decides to be a jerk and starts questioning me in front of everyone in the break room about my collection. Wether I carry to work and let him know before I shoot up the place.
I could post a few more experiences, but I think you get the idea.
While I enjoy about talking about guns. I feel it's in my best interest to only discuss it on forums like this with like minded people. I won't bring up the subject to others and if it gets brough up. I'll be keeping tight liped about it. Even though I'd like to help others, I now feel that it's best to keep quiet about the subject.
Re: Watch who you tell about guns and CC
In general, I agree. And, while my friends, and some co-workers, know I carry, they know I don't carry at work, and my friends know better than to tell others.
I am, however, more than willing to have a reasonable conversation with an anti. If it gets out of hand, discussion gets tabled.
