    TX: Artemio says, "They need to carry a gun."

    Artemio's neighbor was shot while mowing his lawn...

    Artemio chased the BGs in his car, but lost them... and they had paper (temporary) plates. So, no joy...

    An Artemo is correct. I just finished mowing my lawn with an Astra A-75 in an Alien Gear IWB.

    An ex-neighbor (Suburu driving, co-exist bumper sticker, granola eating, grievance industry-personal injury lawyer) one time asked me why I carried a gun while mowing my lawn (in a very disdainful way), I told him because weak-ass victim mentality turds like him won't and as predators sense weakness and always pick off the weak first, that means they will leave me alone. He went away, very, very butt-hurt.

    I have since moved out in the country away from him.


    EDIT: The guy was a walking, talking caricature of the vegetarian enviro liberal lawyer....he really did have a Suburu with a co-exist bumper sticker. He once filed a complaint with the HOA because my "meat-tainted" smoke from my B-B-Que blew into his back yard and made him "physically" ill.

    Sure. Can.

    But one isn't any safer with hoping things won't happen than they've ever been.

    Far safer to be armed and capable of effectively withstanding predation. A's correct, on that score.

    I'm always armed, when lawful to do so. Always. And multiply so. Wouldn't have it any other way.

    I believe that I might have had a few disagreements with your ex-neighbor as well.

    How did you keep from giving him a good, ah, butt whoopin?

    He correctly thought I wasn't as "tolerant" (read wimpy) as he was. After one too many attempts on his part to correct me on my social graces, there was a breaking point. The breaking point came after he came over to tell me how disturbed and insulted he was that I was outside of my shop, in his plain view skinning a deer, "one of nature's most peaceful creatures" that I had murdered. I explained to him murder was if you killed a human being.......... and very un-pc like called him a self-righteous ass and told him to never come on my property again. Subsequently sent a registered letter saying the same thing. Very glad I moved from the area to where I am now.

    His Co-exist wasn't near as cool as yours.

    Gotta love those who preach tolerance, as long as it complies with their world view. I consider myself rather tolerant, but that ends when faced with hypocrisy or anyone trying tell tell me how to live.

    It happened at about 7 a.m. as he was mowing his lawn
    Mowing the lawn at 7:00 AM? On a holiday? I would have shot him too.
