Roy, that was a nice post you made. We are all shaped by our life experiences. I have not seen anything in my fifty years that makes me feel the need to walks around with a gun. I have no desire to see your right to carry a gun revoked. If my life experiences made me feel the need to own a gun, Id get one regardless of what the law was.
I can understand people wanting to carry a gun to protect themselves from lawless individuals. What I cant understand is the people that think the goverment is planning on whupping up on them, and they are making guns illegal so it will be easy to whup up on them.
