    City councilman killed after finding Calif. pot field

    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    ??? Love to see some Private Justice performed on the parties responsible for his death.

    I thought you could not carry a loaded gun in CA. Looks like the perps failed to pay attention to this little detail.

    The article does not state, so it is impossible to know, but I would not be seeking illegal drug operations unarmed. It may not have made a difference, then again it may have.

    I would not be doing it unarmed or alone even if armed. This is why cops use teams.

    One of my counties largest exports used to be pot, grown here. And people wonder why I want to carry trout fishing. I'm not looking for it, but I'm in prime spots to find it. Some of the ones they have found around here were booby trapped too.

    Someone probably failed to put up the NO GUNS ALLOWED signs.

    He was extremely foolish, and it cost him his life.

    Really? Not very unbelievable to me.

    The article does not state whether or not the councilman was armed, but it does state that he was not alone...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    IMHO it sounds like he is either in deep denial or had a Superman complex to think that he is gonna find a grow operation and that whoever planted it isn't gonna do anything especially since a lot of them are purported to be run by Mexican drug cartels.There are a lot of local LEO's that don't go looking for trouble even heavily armed
