Very good point Betty. I don't imagine I could ever be "stressed" out enough to ever be a danger to anyone with my gun UNLESS I or my loved ones are in imminent danger for our lives....period. No amount of stress from jobs, relations, etc. will ever alter my core directive.Betty said:And I still carry my guns and I haven't shot anybody. I will not shoot anybody unless I (or a third party) am in imminent danger of being harmed. I know the law, I have recognized my crazy hormones and have ackowledged when it's IT being the culprit, and I get over the fact that everybody is being annoying. :wink:
Unless I'm under the influence of some mind altering drug, I can and will say, it will never happen to me. I don't take that stuff. It never works on me the way they say it will anyway.rachilders said:There was a James Bond movie back in the 80's that started out with "Never say never". That applies here as well. How many times have we all heard, read or even said ourselves it could never happen... then it does..
Are you sure that was in Mass, I thought it was some other place. Maybe I'm just remembering it wrong.rachilders said:Earlier this year, there was a shooting in Massachuesetts where a man removing a baby from his car was killed over a case of road rage. He was shot four times in front of dozens of witnesses according to police, who found the victim's 10-month-old daughter in a car seat on the floor of the vehicle, bloody but unharmed. A 60-year-old man, who was taking two medications for depression, was arrested and charged with murder in the death of the 27-year-old father.
AND obligation. :biggrin:dpesec said:Chris,
I think we all have been there. But, remember we can think and don't have to react. Actually, I've noticed that when I have my sidearm, I'm much more polite and considerate (not that I'm rude or borish).
Perhaps I feel a bit more selfconfident, I don't know. I do know this, when you have the power of life and death you have a greater sense of responsiblity.
