    Suprise at my Eye doctor the other week >>>>

    I had laser surgery perform on both of my eyes back in 2006 and was in last week for my yearly eye checkup, which went well by the way. Sitting at the waiting room, I see different magazines and what caught my eye was the NRA American Rifleman magazine. I picked it up and was thinking it was probably donated by someone. Looking at the address it was addressed to my doc !!! So after my exam, I asked him as he was about to leave the room, what he thought of the 2nd amendment. Wow we sat for the next 20 minutes talking smack about the current Prez, how people are really getting too lax about giving up their Constitutional rights, how he has a nice collection of *stuff*, how the country is slowly going down, how he has grown son's who he taught how to shoot when they were young and that they grew up respecting firearms, etc. In the end I told him that it was refreshing to know that he was a fellow 2nd amendment supporter and Christian. I just wanted to share. God Bless

    I ran into my Medical Doctor at a local gun show a year or so ago.

    It's great to have an eye-doc that's such a visionary.

    Had a foot problem a few years ago that required a series of check ups, where all we talked about were guns and 2A. Glad the foot problem is gone, but miss the conversations.

    I'm glad your Doc is pro-2A, knowing that I wouldn't mind waiting for him (not real long, but for a little while).

    I was waiting on mine one day, and happened to see this decoration on his door. I told him I liked it. It was only an air rifle, but the message was good.....and no one was freaking out over it !

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Love it! He wasn't in Winchester was he? That's where mine is and he's pro 2A also.

    My opthalmologist set my last pair of glasses so that the bi-focal focuses on the front sight. She was really cool about it, too.
