Heck, you read it and posted within 10 minutes. It couldn't have been that long!.

Thanks, it is a true story. Unfortunately the SOB is still the GM there. I stop by pretty frequently and when I see him I let him know he is an A-hole.

I'm not old enough to carry a gun, and imagine the difficulty getting a permit here in commiefornia, but I do carry a pocket knife with me everywhere but school. The only reason I don't have it at school is because I like where I go and don't feel the need to get kicked out if I ever were caught with it.


I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.

We tend to do nothing about situations like this because we are afraid we will be viewed as a "gun nut" or worse. However, if we continue to do nothing except wring our hands, our "rights" will soon be gone because we didn't fight for them.

A local restaurant hosts a "Bike Night" every week in my area, and the restaurant is a GFZ. I have carded them before, but I wonder what a bunch of motorcycle riders and vendors would feel about being sitting ducks, just like the poor victims in Aurora, CO...
Cool link, Greg! I just ordered 250 to hand out to my ccw buddies.

Other than Federal and Government facilities with scanners and air flights! I am carrying!
I would rather face the consequences rather than be dead or go home with the feeling on my heart that I could not have protected others from a major disaster like the ones in Colorado's Columbine, the Movie theater. The Military Base, the Virginia College incident and others! I would have no problem if teachers carried concealed. Concealed is Concealed! That means no one knows you are carrying! And your lips are tight!!!! Meaning we do not brag about it when we are out! NO One Knows our weapon is on us! My wife even often asks me when we leave home do I have it on me. My response is what do you think!



The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
*Patrick Henry

Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."

-- John F. Kennedy

Fantastic! They are fun to hand to business owners and managers. I always say, "I removed my legally licensed firearm to come into your business, in honor of your sign, but I wanted to leave this with you to explain why I will never be in again. Would you pass it along to the owner, please?" A few have asked for my number, but none have ever followed up.

In fact, after Aurora, CO., maybe I should follow up with them...

I'm sorry you feel that way...pointing out flaws in logic, or lack there of, is the nature of debate and debate is the reason we are here.

Sillyness will always be met with or

It's not a personal attack and I do not believe I took anything you wrote out of context.

Still, I'm a not at all surprised by your withdrawal. Packing up and refusing to play when emotion or talking points fail to sway logic and facts is the typical liberal response.

Even though I am exempt from many GFZ's I try not to spend my money where I am not wanted. I pass these out to GFZ owners.

I printed up some stickers with the word NATS on it.

Every time I see a "NO GUNS ALLOWED" sign on a business it say NO GNATS ALLOWED" when I leave.

I also have stickers with a picture of a wood screw on them.

I just love to find "I (heart shape) My Poodle" or other such bumpers stickers...
