    How and why CCW works.

    Exactly
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    On the flip side, If you didn't know one was poisoned, you'd try to eat them all. There's always an opposite view.

    Exactly.

    How about we stop this nonsense trying to prove which is better, and just accept that people prefer different methods based on their lives and perhaps locations.

    Amen! We fight more over how to carry than the right to carry.

    If the posed example were true, then wouldn't it make more sense to employ Only plain clothes police; then the bad guys would never know who might be an officer because he could look like just another person?

    Sit a plate of chocolate chip cookies and a glass of milk in front of me and I'm going to stuff myself!

    I think I'd take a chance. There are a lot of cookies there, the odds are with me & they sure look good!

    Besides, maybe it will only make you sick, and what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

    That is funny right there. I didn't post this as a CC versus OC, but I guess some people are sensitive about that particular topic. Hahah

    I only meant it as an easy to understand graphic as it pertains to good citizens being armed versus good citizens being sheep. I don't care how you carry, but really wish more people would...that's all.

    Be safe.

    I like the analogy...except it's that one of those cookies MIGHT be poisoned...you don't even actually have to poison one.

    I keep trying to explain that to people enamored with Gun Free zones who think I'm trying to force people to be armed in there...these guys are picking these zones because they know no one will be armed...there's nothing that says people ARE armed in non-gun free zones. You don't need to arm every teacher in America, just give them the option. Even if NONE of them go for the option, it's going to be known that it's possible and they'll move on to the next criminal safe zone.
