    Sheep in the family.

    I have a sister-in-law who I love dearly but she is such a sheep I can’t believe it sometimes. She is not against guns as her deceased husband hunted and owned guns but never carried. Anyway the other day there was an article in the paper about how the Hell’s Angels were going to be passing through up north on their way to Sturgis. They had booked 250 rooms at a Casino and a bar for a party for a couple of days. Now we knew she and her friend were headed up to Duluth about the same time and she loves Casinos. We told her about the Angels and how it might be a good idea to avoid this particular casino for this trip. Her reply, “Well we could still stop”. She is totally obvious to potential danger even when you point it out to her. She would stick her head in the mouth of a yawning lion and say, “After all he might not be hungry”. Just thought I’d share this. Not much you can do with her except hope for the best.

    It's difficult to get the attention of unless the wolf is chasing them.
    Hopefully she won't cross the wrong paths while on her trip.

    I wouldn't necessarily feel the need to stop at the same casino as the Hell's Angels. After all, some of them may be good guys, but there's a reason they're called Hell's Angels

    The Hell's Angels are just a misunderstood group of young men, who mean no harm.

    ive met my fair share of outlaw bikers from angels, to outlaws, and a few others. and i can say that of the ones that i have met, they were really cool guys with some pretty sweet war stories, respect them and they will respect you. not saying they are ALL good sane people, but they arent all psychopathic out of control rioters that they are most remberd as.

    While true, they also have a rep for a reason.

    Bullets are non-discriminatory. They don't necessarily hit their intended victim. There have been people killed because some banger/thug thinks they were "disrespected" whatever that means, in some way. Why take the chance?

    So, you're saying that someone shouldn't go where they want to out of fear that something "might" happen while they are there?

    If that's the case then evil has already won.

    As for myself, I go where I choose when I choose. The fact that someone else "may" try to harm me is of little regard in the decision because I accept the risk and the possible consequences based upon my personal needs and desires. To do otherwise makes me a slave to the whims of evil.

    This is not to say that I go looking for danger. What I mean is that I will not change my plans because of a vague or remote possibility of danger. I am not afraid of fear.

    that was the hells angels VS the mongols, not the hells angels VS random people on the street.

    yes you could say that the innocent people shouldnt have been there in the first place, but thats like saying that people who drown shouldnt be in the water in the first place.
