    Now my mom wants her CCP thanks to this site!

    My mom and i were talking a few weeks ago about my CCP, when she asked, "why do you feel like you need to carry a gun EVERYWHERE"? not in a rude way but just wondering. i told her you never know when bad things are gonna happen. she dismissed it as whatever and i asked her "6 years ago, when you were mugged downtown, did you wake up thinking you were gonna get robbed?" she said no of course, but didnt really get it.

    yesterday, she was at the apartment, i told her i wanted her to read something since she didnt see why i had sent off $100 for my permit. i showed her the sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs article.

    she finished, looked at me and said "WOW, that makes a very good point, very true!" i asked if she realized why i will carry soon and she said yes and asked if she can get her permit not being a citizen
    (shes from germany, has her green card, but refused to get her citizenship in case she ever has to go back home to take care of family.)

    im so proud, she might actually take this serious now, she loves going to the range and wants to go more now!

    Congrats on the making of another individual interested in becoming their own self-defense system.

    Can't she maintain dual citizenship? I know others who do...

    Stay armed...keep giving her current events to read...stay safe!

    i asked her about that years ago, i dont remember why she couldnt. but she wanted to vote obama anyways, as embarassed as i am too say it. im glad she cant. she is more worried about palin becoming president than obama screwing up the country......she believes obama will do more good than harm, and she is very anti republican because she thinks every republican is ONLY for the wealthy

    Dual citizenship is not recognized by the U.S.A.; you cannot pledge allegiance to 2 masters ...
    A lot of people do not care and keep 2 passports but if you become an american citizen, the US will not recognize your other nationality; you still can use it overseas, but why ?

    Don't be embarrassed !!!
    People here gave their lives so that every one could vote as they wish.
    It is called Freedom !
    By the same token, you have the freedom to explain things to her and as you had her change on carrying, maybe you can help her on her political stand.

    Congrats to you and to her for being able to understand that there is evil in this world.

    JFL: while i agree with you, that is what makes this country great, everyone can have a difference of opinion, and vote the way they wish. this is the first time in my life im actually scared of the "other guy" winning president. its always been well if soandso wins we will deal with it for 4 years. im VERY afraid of what will happen if obama wins this one, for my daughters sake.

    Good job of helping her see the light. Too often people wait until it is too late then they see why we carry 24/7.
    DEMOCRACY IS TWO WOLVES AND A LAMB VOTING ON WHAT TO HAVE FOR LUNCH. LIBERTY IS A WELL ARMED LAMB CONtestING THE VOTE.

    Ditto!
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.
