    New from Michigan

    Hello all.
    Just joined up the yesterday.
    I'm a Midland high school teacher who believes in his rights to keep and bare arms to protect family and friends.
    I live in central Michigan and love our beautiful state and country. I hate that I feel I need to carry, but am very much a realist. I wish we could carry at school, and feel those of us who do carry should take that responsibility seriously.
    I plan to take as many tactical classes as I can afford this summer to improve my skills and knowledge of the laws and situations that may demand the use of deadly force to stop an aggressive action by others.
    I hope those of you who are armed will do the same to ensure your proficiency in this area. Carrying a gun is serious, and should be taken seriously.

    (Jumps off soap box)

    John,

    Welcome from South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
