    I have never seen this video until today. It brought tears to my eyes to hear her tell the story of her parents getting gunned down by some lunatic. If someone in that business had been a CWP holder OR carrying a weapon for self defense, someone could have stopped him. That also reminds me of the fact that you never know when some idiot will decide to go on a random killing spree and that you must always be prepared, no matter what.

    Boy Scout Motto. I am armed 100% of the time.

  5. My wife asks me every time I put my gun in my holster "Who are your gonna shoot?" in a playful manner (she has a ccw permit herself) and I reply, "Honey, hopefully nobody, but the last thing anybody who poses a threat on your life or mine will see is a muzzle flash"

    I would rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. Very cheap life insurance.

The LEO has no idea who or what you are other than the fact that you have already demonstrated poor judgement at the very least--and now you want him to put up with your "I have rights attitude"--are you kidding me?
    I want him to respect my rights. It's his job to put up with my rights. And if that's to much of a burden then he should find work elsewhere. Asking this question isn't pertinent to the stop, and I would ignore the question. If I consider answering his question it would only be, because he asked in a respectable inquisitive way. This is also how I would handle being asked in public. Frankly it's not anyone's business why I carry, or wear a particular watch, or why I don't wear a wedding ring.

    That's not what the ruling said. It did say that we no longer have the recognized right under English common law (this was excepted since the 1700s but was never actual law) to forcibly stop an officer from illegaly entering your home. They said this because we now can rely on the courts for redress. It does not make illegal searches, or entry into ones home legal without a warrant. And they took our perceived right to fight off an illegal arrest years ago. And this is in line with most states.
    P.S. There has been a bill introduced that has a lot of support, to give Indiana residents the right to defend their homes from illegal entry by police. I'm not sure if it has passed out of committee yet.

    I OC a XD .45, and was asked why I carried and why such a large caliber during an ID check a few months back. When the cop asked why I had a gun i looked him up and down, then said "you seem a bit heavier than my gun". he laughed then asked why the .45? ( he was carrying the issued 9mm) i then said "cause they don't make a .46". he didnt bother running my of my info. he told me to get back in my car and leave lol

    A cop once told me "Criminals have Rights. Citizens have Liberties."

  11. Oddly enough any LEO encounter I've had (about 5 since I got my CCW which was about 6 weeks ago) I have not gotten the "why do you carry" question. I get a rather enlightened reply of "why did you wait so long" it makes me chuckel often times.
