    So let's here, why do you carry concealed?
    So I'm not bothered about it.

    I don't buy into "the element of surprise" or any of that. I just want to make a grocery trip without a manager telling me to leave because some blue-haired liberal with 10 piercings in her face got 'offended'. I also don't care to be bothered by gun-buster signs and whatnot. I just want to go about my day.

  3. Some years ago a group of young men armed with baseball bats showed up to express their displeasure that I, a gay man , had moved into their neighborhood. They told me, "We're going to beat the **** out of you!". At that point I reached behind the door, retrieved the shotgun that I always kept there, and told them "No. You are not." They all decided at that moment that they had something else to do and they all drifted away, and I never had a bit of trouble from them again.

    The point is, As I go through my life I am not always going to have a shotgun within easy reach, like I did that day. Now that I live in Washington - a shall issue state - there is no reason that I cannot always be as prepared as I was that day. And I am. I carry a Glock 17 from the time I dress in the morning until the time I go to bed. I pray to God that I never need it, but if the time ever comes when I do, I will have it.

    This incident below happened last summer less than a mile away from where I and family members were enjoying a barbecue in what is normally a VERY non-violent area. You never know when or where....



    As far as carrying concealed, I am an old fart now. I don't want to get into a wrestling match with some young whippersnapper who thinks (probably rightly so) that he is in good enough shape to take my gun away from me.

    It's unfortunate that gun rights are cast as a rightist issue because gun rights are a non-partisan issue applying to all.
