    A thought

    After seeing this avatar, which belongs to Danoam, it got me thinking. I carry daily for the exact same reason our country has a military defense and, hopefully, I do have peace through superior firepower. I can't understand the whole disarm to be safe thing. If it is okay to disarm me for safety reasons, then shouldn't we disband the military to prevent wars?

    And, I have to move to LA just to be able to get a job with high earning potential and a future all because of the black hole economy in Montana. I sure wish this company had offices in Arizona!!!!!!!

    The people who think you can achieve safety through disarmament live in a utopian vacuum, or an alternate universe. The rest of us in what I like to refer to as "reality" still want to take responsibility for ourselves.

    As Passin' Through said recently " I preach peace, but everyone doesn't want peace." Pretty much sums it up.
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    That's quoteworthy right there.
