Thread: Not sure if I understand some people

    Not sure if I understand some people

    I have noticed since I began reading these forums that there seem to be a lot of manly posts about how "I carry on my job even though they don't allow it" "I carry whether it is legal or not" "If it is concealed who's gonna know". Isn't the idea behind getting the permit to show you are an example setter and upstanding citizen? If you are going to break the law why even bother with the permit? If you have to use you weapon and you are violating a posted notice you are going to jail. PLEASE don't ruin it for the rest of us by violating the laws with this macho I can do what I want attitude. If everyone that has a permit acted this way they would pass all of the gun control laws and we would all be without protection. These laws are in place for a reason whether you like it or not abide by them so we can continue to get the respect we deserve!!!

    SPDRACR39,
    Though I do agree with you on certain points of your post. I must point out that Carrying your weapon with a valid CCW Permit, at your work place will most likely get you fired.

    But, the most you will get charged with is Tresspassing. Now ,if the situation ever arose were an Armed Gun Man came into your Employment, and began shooting poeple, and you Interveined and stopped the BG from killing anyone else.

    I think the Employer would be Greatful, and as long as it was an good shoot, chances are you will not be charged.

    Every Human being has the right to protect ones self,Iam sure some take this right a little to far But, in general Most legal CCWers will not, or do not abuse this right.

    You are correct in saying that as Legal Armed Citizens we must set our standards higher, than the average Citizen but who's to say where we draw the line.

    There are a lot of poseurs and internet Rambos online. This site has it's share. They're easy to spot and avoid.

    Concealed carry is not about doing what others do, insist you do or cagoule you into doing - It's about doing the right thing, knowing the law, setting an example and not being a lemming. If you let those boneheaded rogue cowboys that frequently show up here get to you, then your gonna get tired of openly challenging their thoughts and another voice of reasoning will be gone due to self imposed exiled. Keep challenging them, keep the awareness level up and there will be those of us that will be your back up.

    There are people on this and other forums who obviously shouldn't be allowed anywhere near firearms. In fact nothing has pushed me more towards believing more gun control might be a good thing than internet gun forums. However, since you can't control such people, don't let them get to you. Worry about yourself and let them be who they choose. After all, they can't help it.

    I agree 100 % if you are going to carry with a permit, remember permits are issued to LAW ABIDING CITIZENS..... If you are not permitted to carry in a certain place, DON'T, our just simply dont patronize that facility, it's rather simple.......

    Most of them are teens who have never fired a gun - steel or flesh.

    Let's rephrase that based on some of the news reports...
    The employees who were saved would be grateful and may even pursue being lawfully armed citizens themselves. The employer on the other hand would probably fire you for violating some 'policy.'

    Examples are the pizza delivery guys who got terminated after defending themselves, the pharmacy guy that told the employer about safety at night-then got fired after he defended himself.

    That is correct. If the employer has it in the company rule handbook he doesn't have much choice.

    I adhere to the law strictly. I don't like it ... I think there are way too many places that are off limits for no good reason but I go along with it.
