    I saw the "Teach - Yes, Carry Guns - No" sign and thought to myself: Teaching would be great if that is what they did. Around here, a lot of teachers feel like their job is simply to provide busywork for the children while their parents are at work.

    I couldn't care less. I give props to people for standing up for what they believe in, even if I disagree and chose a different side. They have a right to peaceful assembly....just as I have a right to bear arms.

    This weekend the gun show was so packed over here I did not even get in! If people were protesting it was by buying everything they could get their hands on!

    Looks like 20-25 people tops were protesting. I wonder how many attended the gun show to purchase or look around?
    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    Has anyone seen counter-protesters? I've seen them before at gun shows when the Antis come out, maybe we should be making up a few picket signs...

    I've broken tradition with my "grey man" attire, and gone back to wearing my NRA ball cap when I go out.

    Of course, around here, all you gets is smiles, nods and "thumbs up". God bless the south.

    To me it seems gun shows are on the rise.

    "Hold my sign a moment while I go inside and look around."

    I think the protesters should hold signs saying " I can't think for myself" because that is obvious.

    According to Firearm Use by Offenders, Bureau of Justice Statistics, February 2002, only 0.7% of convicts bought their firearms at gun shows.
