Grimm2785: Gyrfalcon: You know, there are things you CAN do, and things you SHOULD do. There are things you are legally allowed to do in public, things you can say without fear of repercussion, places you can go anytime you want. However, there are times and places you as a human being should voluntarily censor or restrict your rights, because it's the polite or socially expedient thing to do.

I mean, you CAN tell a small child dressed like a freak, "Hey, kid, you look like a freak!" but in the name of kindness, you should say "My, don't you look nice today!" You CAN drive through Compton with your windows down screaming "N*ggers back to Africa!" but you shouldn't expect to survive if you do. And by the same token, you can certainly own firearms and even have a CCW, but don't you think there are places you shouldn't take your gun even so?

When did we as a nation become a bunch of individuals walking around saying "I got my rights, f*ck yours!" Oh, right, nevermind.

I exercise my second amendment rights when i carry a firearm for self defense. What right of yours am i stepping on exactly?


You are infringing upon his right to infringe upon your rights.

You don't really know anything about hunting, do you?

I'm pissed the government won't allow me to have nuclear arms. Now, only criminals have nuclear arms in the United States, and we're all forced to cower in fear. I'm not allowed to properly defend myself. If they wanted to, these hoodlums could break into my house and rape my kitten while I sit there helpless because my measly AK-47 is useless against their bomb.

Ok, I'll bite.
CSB.
I worked security in a tittie bar in NM, back in the 70s. Not your ordinary tittie bar, mind you, this one was outside of the city limits. In fact, it was quite outside of the limits of civilization. The girls that worked there were the ones that worked in town. But this is where they worked while they healed up. Whether it be cold sores, pregnancy, broken bones, or worse. They still needed money and still got up on stage and peeled for cash. Only here, there were no rules. They could do things they couldn't get away with on stage in the city. Nothing wrong with a little ping pong ball canyoneering when the shooter has a shiner and visible scabs around the muzzle, but who am I to judge? I'm here to make sure no one gets hurt or killed. I am not waiting for the first customer to come through the door. No I show up when the place is getting filled up. When there are already 2 other guards who have been screening the arrivals. They check them at the door for weapons. I am assured by my boss the other guards are not allowed to bring firearms to this gig. It's a rough crowd, mostly bikers, and wet backs, but all of them are genuine scum. My job is to make sure we intervene in any one breaking the rules. Simple rules. No one comes in with a weapon. No one leaves with a drink. When I arrive, I'm on a chopper. It's a repo, I got on the military base, and no previous owner will be in the crowd. I park it where I can see it. On a concrete pad with spotlights on it just outside of the pool tables and I walk in. I go up to the bar and tell the bar tender to open the safe while I pull a very large 44 magnum out of my shoulder holster, drop the bullets in my shirt pocket and hand the bartender my empty piece to lock up in the safe. I go check on the boys at the door, and this huge ugly dude stops me and says, "Hey man, why did you lock your gun up"? And I say, "I'm not here to kill anyone, man". (I'm only wearing a baton) And I join the guys at the only entrance/ exit. If the bar tender catches my eye from anywhere in the bar, he can look to where I need to be next and I'm there. Never stuck a man one time working that gig, and always got tipped out good. Only time I drew the baton was when a guy absolutely would not put down a bottle of beer and wanted to leave. We tried every rick in the book, we even appealed to his machismo. Hey, man, we know you can finish that and drop the empty in the can before you leave. And he's goading my man on by the door. Telling him he's real tough with the stick and shiat. I'm standing behind the bottle dude, and I tell him "go Ahead, man. But we only pull these sticks when confronted with a guy that is holding a deadly weapon, but then, then, man, we just whip ass until there's nothing but a puddle. So he won't pull that stick until you show a deadly weapon, now put the bottle in the bin. He turns around and yells "FARK YOU, MAN" then turn to the other guard. So I pulled that stick and broke his little bottle and said, "Well, you see, now, man. Now...you're holding a deadly weapon" at which point three other guys came on over and grabbed him and made him drop the bottle before he got really embarrassed by having two rent - a - cops pound on him. His friends, presumably. Anyway. That was then.
You don't need a gun around drunks, unless you like shooting drunks.
End CSB.

justtray: I guess I'll have to bow to your intellectual supriority. You showed me. All I have on my side is a mountain of facts and logic. Pretty easy to refute with hyperbole and citations of gun on gun violence in convenience stores right? Not like I have aggregate stats of countries that banned guns and subsequent gun crime going to zero. Just totally ignore that. Or better yet, misrepresent it, because the facts all all on one side.

Sucks when you're on the wrong side of facts, I'm sure. That's why me telling you how your small penis gun carrying fantasies will never come true hurt so much. It's ok, you'll get over it. Life goes on regardless if you're a small penis coward who needs a gun to feel safe.

IamAwake: joonyer: If your life is threatened by a holstered pistol, then my life is threatened by a parked car.

That is a stupid statement. Absolutely stupid. Handguns were made for killin' - they ain't no good for nothin' else. Cars, on the other hand, are made for transporting. If you're doing anything other than killing a human being with a handgun (anything proper, at least) you are merely practicing so as to be more effective at killing a human with a handgun. Almost all cars, on the other hand, completely fulfill their purpose for their entire serviceable lifetimes, without ever killing someone.


Yes, completely true. That's why I own a handgun, to kill people. But only certain people, people who don't understand right from wrong. People who think might makes right and it's perfectly okay to murder me, rape me, kidnap my son, etc. If they act on those impulses, then yes, I want to kill them to stop them. Since those people don't walk around wearing black hats and twirling mustaches I need to carry all the time instead of just listening for the sinister music to start.

Of course you're also completely right and practice at the range is not fun at all. Getting better and better at a skill gives people no satisfaction. Those people doing archery or fencing are the same, just practice to kill people, the blood thirsty savages.

Killing someone may be a perfectly legitimate activity.

I agree, but sometimes it's tough. When you got a small firearm down each sock, and the third in the crotch of your pants, sometimes it's kind of hard to hide the fourth when it's warm out and you don't want to wear a jacket, and your "DIE OBAMA" t-shirt just doesn't do the trick.

iheartscotch: You have to know your local ordinances; some places you can legally waive your gun around in public. I don't know why you would; but you can. Open carry is a tricky one; mostly because some conceal carry ordinances apply to open carry. Some places, the type of holster is regulated; it's all based on local ordinance. And, it's complicated as all hell

/ I'm glad I live in a place where it is quite legal to open carry just about anywhere.

// sometimes, though, it's best to listen to johnny cash and leave your guns at home


Glad I live in a place where I don't feel the need to carry a gun to feel safe. I call it the real world.
