    I know what you mean. I used to feel that way too. However, it occurred to me that there is also a lot of good in little ones having fun, getting candy, and an event that provides a good opportunity for 'family time'. God often uses evil for Good, and I believe that this is one of those events. To shut one's self up in the house, with the lights off, deprives one of an opportunity to do good. Even if you don't believe in God, it's hard to argue that this isn't a good opportunity to love on your neighbor's kids.

    As I mentioned earlier, me and my family will be out there having a wonderful time (and I'll be armed to the teeth).

    agreed Whec, when we T or T with my son we get to meet the neighbors, their kids, etc, we don't get much of a chance to see folks in the neighborhood and hopefully be neighborly and meet new people living so close to us

    It's good to know your neighbor's and their family's. My neighbor's and I watch each others houses and pick up the papers from the driveways and hold the mail when out of town... A little added security for some neighborly chit chat and a little candy. Win win.

    I am going to hand out candy in my costume, which won't allow me to carry, but I really don't feel the need to carry in my neighborhood. Will my .45 be close to the door and put away in my hutch, yes.

    All guns stay at home when I go out after the kiddies are done trick or treating, b/c guns and bars are a no no.

    Carrying is just not that special. Will I have my housekey? Check. Car keys? Check. Cell phone? Check. All tools for a purpose, as is my firearm.

    Why wouldn't someone carry on Halloween? It's another day, just like the other 364.

    Is there one day a year that crime takes a day off?

    Since I won't be at work, I'll be carrying.

    I agree wholeheartedly! The only reason this holiday (Which is what it is) has such a bad rap is people's lack of participation in it. If everyone would participate it would be safe again, people pulling out and shutting their lights off change the ratio of good kids/stupid teenagers in a negative way. Halloween is NOT a pagan holiday and it does not glorify the devil. It has its older origins as well, but in that regard, Christmas is a pagan holiday as well.

    Remember, the word Pagan literally means "Not Catholic". Buying into Halloween being the devil's holiday is like blindly listening to the people who say CHL holders have an 80% chance of shooting themselves.

    Make it a fun holiday for the kids, buy some candy and carve a Jack-o-lantern and have a good time.

    Alex!

    I will also have my cell phone, wallet and glasses on. I am another who just consider it a normal day!

    There is a reason why I should consider it differently?

    Well if you anticipate trouble, why go?

    Sorry but it is a celebration of a satanic practice. Jesus does not appreciate it.

    It's just a message board among like minded folks... I can afford the time to pop in and give my thumbs up. No big deal for me.
