OK - nothing new here, just a rant!
We talk all the time here about the problems of gun -free zones .. but as ever it seems ''they, the decision-makers'' are incompetent and unable to differentiate between "gun in legit' hands" and "gun in BG's hands" (yeah - the latter, the guns they'll always have and carry and to heck with the law).
It is just "the gun" - always "the gun" - the evil hunk of metal (or polymer and metal :wink:)!. Keep guns out and all is just wonderful :rolleyes:
These days, having to jump thru hoops to get permits means that those who carry legally are probably the most responsible citizens on this great continent. Clean record .... awareness of legal ramifications ....... choice to avoid trouble ... the list is long.
And yet - seems we are tarred with the same old brush - "you got a gun - we regard you as a threat and dangerous". I am sick of it.
If (heaven forbid) even as much as 1 whole % of legal CCW's commit crime or infringe the law ------- is that remaining 99% not totally describable as ''for the greater good"? Nothing is perfect but it seems that we, the good monster majority are always being slammed ... and debarred from places where no one can create total safety.
It may seem overdone but I still totally believe that ''an armed (legally) society is a polite society" ...... and wish there were more folks who would choose to take their own responsibility for protection, and ........ be able to practice that, anywhere, anywhere at all.
Sorry - old subject - relax! :smilez:
