    Another new member from PA

    New to the forum--NOT new to carrying concealed. Have had permit for about 30 years. Carried mostly into Phila., when working as a musician. Retired from teaching after 32 years. And contrary to the NEA's political desires, a LOT of teachers are pro-gun. And quite a few I knew carried (although not on school grounds per state law), women included.
    Semi-retired now (part-time work pays the kid's college bills), spending lots of time riding the Harley and shooting sporting clays.
    Carry all the time, now. Always CC. Subscribe to the belief: Always carry. NEVER tell.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Welcome from Michigan! From the sounds of it, the NEA is to teachers, what the National Association of Chiefs of Police is to LEO's. Wanting to falsely spread the news that their anti gun stance represents the opinion of rank and file members across the board. If only the media would help spread the word that it isn't that way at all....
    Regards, T Bone.

    Welcome, neighbor! Wouldn't dream of going to the Philly Zoo without my carry! (or anywhere else for that matter)
