Thread: Concealed Carry While Trick or Treating on Halloween?

  1. #21
    To many child molesters and other assorted weirdos out during that time so it's a yes on carry. Just means more diligence should the need arise. I should state that my kids are all to old to trick or treat now but I carried in the past while walking around with them.

    Could be worse

    Oh heck it could be worse. I could be like some of the various Catholic organizations who obsess over abortion and talk about it in ever conversation. I get the point that the Catholic church wants to outlaw abortion and tell women that they do not have the right to decide what's best for their bodies, but still they feel the need to bring it up every single conversation. Sometimes I think the Catholic church fusses over abortion so much to deflect critism about Priest sex scandals and money laundering by the Vatican Bank.

    So the differance can be summed up with, I talk about CCW badges because because it's a big joke. The Catholic church talks about abortion, because they are a big joke.

  4. A very BAD joke, however. Remember, there is no tyranny more bloody and terrible than a theocracy.

    Keep in mind that the Vatican City was set up by Benito Musellini through the Lateran Accords. As such the Vatican is the last vestage of 1930's era Naziism.

    I am not Catholic but I will say the woman having a say over here body stops when she uses that lame excuse to destroy the body, sole and spirit of a baby.

    Kids are not the problem, it's the adult-aged "children" who come around right at the end of the T or T session that I always worry about.

    Not paranoid, just careful.
    Me too buddy . I had a kid kick my front door about 4 years ago with hi father behind him ! I waited in a dark hallway . Who knew what they were trying to accomplish at 10:00 p.m. I had a big surprise if they came in ! Always stay prepared on that goofy day ! God Bless (Trying to get by in this bad economy )

    Went out for Japanese food last night and it got too hot with them cooking at our table so I had to take my jacket off and it became slightly obvious I had SOMETHING under my shirt to me, but didn't know what it appeared to be to others. So I asked my wife, "does this gun make my butt look big?" She just shakes her head and tolerates me. But in this state it must be totally concealed! Too much hassle with a costume I think.

    I don't think I'd carry trick or treating, but my kid is grown past that now so I just stayed in, watched the Pats spank Brett Favre, and handed out candy.

    But if you think about it, Halloween is a great night for handing out retribution. One of the few nights a year you can wear a mask on the street and not draw attention to yourself. so it might be a wise ti,e to carry.

    Tough call.
