    its a double standard like anything else in the world. people have this negative impression that gun owners are gonna commit a felony the second they buy a gun.

    another reason i didnt tell anybody i have a gun for protection/sport shooting. dont need to put up with their narrow-minds and "why" questions.

    Yep- almost no one knows I have guns. For a few reasons. All of them good.

    The odd thing is that they really have no idea how much safer they are because of ccw... everytime a carrier stands his ground and takes out a bad guy, those who call us crazy are just a little safer.

    Well, if having a ccl and carrying a weapon is the definition of being a "nut" then I am the craziest nut you'll ever run across.

    Well I sadly live in Mass. so this place is full of anti's, hey we still have Kennedy & Kerry here! People that know me know that I've carried for more than 30 years. Most also know I've been a cop for just as long. Regardless; I still try to explain to them that I ALONE am responsible for the safety of myself and my family. That I ALONE will have the balls to do it and see it through if and when the time comes. When I ask another father/husband what he's gonna do if they are at a Wally-world or MacD's and it all goes to shit if they can safe their family they usually shrink away like all the other sheeple. I carry 24/7/365 no matter where I go. Always a gun and usually a backup knife or 2! Just my 2 cents. My wife is also in the proccess of getting her LTC, and when my daughter is old enough she'll get one too.

    A lot of my friends/coworkers/accquantainces are clueless when it comes to guns, and many of them are anti. I do not get shy when it comes to this topic and neither should anyone else. It is my right to carry, and my resposibility to protect myself and my family. I say the guy who is counting on someone else to come and save him is the one who is CRAZY. I don't know about you, but I don't live in Gotham City, or Metropolis.

    It is a shame that a lot of people do nit get it. It is not their fault all together. They only know what the left wing media tell them. If they heard about all the people and families that have not been victimized due to them being armed it might be a different story but the media will not report those instances.

    We just have to educate them. A true friend would be willing to listen and that goes both ways. Personally I can not see myself being friends with an anti gunner. Guns are just to much a part of my life.

    This is so very true. Yesterday I sent an email to one of our local TV stations (KPRC) protesting one of their news stories. Sadly a 7 yr old boy was killed by some people with a shotgun. Details are still murky about the reason, but, they reported the story as a shooting and plastered a picture of a handgun (not a shotgun) in the background of the morning anchor. No where during the report was it stated that the boy was shot with a shotgun. I protested their play on peoples sympathy for gun control by them displaying a handgun when reporting the story (subliminal suggestion anyone?) and then not stating anywhere in the report that the shooting was done by a shotgun. I stated they needed to apologize to the people for their misleading the public by the lack of actual facts. Like that is actually going to happen. No response to my email yet except to say "we got it and it will be sent to that department."

    While it seems misleading to us, I don't think the public in general would find being shot with a handgun or shotgun that big of a difference in the overall story. A minor point in the big picture of a wounded child.

    except all the gun owners who carry, carry pistols, not shotguns. at least im assuming a ccw doesnt let you put a shotgun down your pant leg... that would be something to see.

    there should be a website where all the stories that show the good that came out of a situation where someone was able to protect themselves. that way when someone starts telling you how crazy you are you could link em to that site and say "here, look how many people have saved their live or someone elses because they WERE armed."

    In today's world, unarmed = nuts. Armed = prudent.
    A gun is a tool like any other tool. It may be either used, or abused.

    I will leave this discussion with one of my favorite quotes...

    If guns cause crime, then spoons made Rosie O'Donnel fat!

    There is a website thats has a lot of self defense articles. PM for the address. I do not not want to post it public because it might break a rule. I am involved in the website.
