I also get sidetracked into the political aspects of gun control/carrying because because they are connected at the hip. You cannot seperate them as all gun control is ultimately political. Gun control brings us any and all laws dictating what we "can" or "cannot" do regarding firearms. Politics and those elected as such control the making of the laws that directly impact our freedoms, generating discussion.
Discussing specific gun models, caliber, holsters, etc is one thing but when discussing "can I carry here or there" or "what about carrying in theaters..." or anything other than the specifics of particular guns/calibers/equipment, IMHO, you are discussing politics.
Having said all that, I must say I'm guilty of taking a hard stand on the idea of CCW. It's been my stand that CCW is nobody elses business, nobody's. Not the employers business, not the schools, not the banks not even the governments. The Second Amendment trumps any infringing "no guns" sign, as I see it. However, as true as that is i will curtail my soap-boxing in threads here and simply realize even pro-carry people can be sheeples and it is thier choice to make.
My fear is that the choice may not be a choice for long if enough people think any and all laws are just and we become an England again.
Putting ones head in the sand will not seperate the political reality that freedom versus tyranny is.
