    I had the same type of thing happen with a co worker. She didn't fell she need a gun but when she was going to go pick up a fish she bought off Craig's list, she asked if I could go with her. I asked why and she said....

    "Well, I don't know these people and I'd feel safer if you were there. You do have your gun right?"

    Oh and I'm 90% Conservative and 10% Liberal.....

    Wife and I tested the same - 75/25 although many of the choices left something to be desired.

    If I didn't like either answer, I left blank. 90% conservative, 10% liberal

    I tried it again doing it that way and came out with 95/5. That is more like it.

    Yep, the liberal "No Guns" types always change in crisis. They want to tell us we're crazy, they don't want their kids near us, but all of a sudden, something bad happens or they feel threatened..... the first thing they want is a gun or somebody with a gun to protect them.

    I have a close friend who is not really a liberal by definition, but he's against concealed carry or carry of any guns. He believes if you want a gun, it should be locked up in a safe and only taken out for target practice at a controlled range environment. You don't need one for protection.

    But then...... One day he needed someone with a truck, me, to pick up some items from a business, that he had purchased for his business. That business was deep in the hood in New Orleans, but he didn't realize it until we were already riding down those streets in the hood. With drug dealers on the corner, approaching the vehicle, and hoodlums hanging on the corners, looking as we passed, he was obviously shaken. He said, My God. If I had known it was down here in this area, I never would have bought it. He looked at me and asked. Do you have your gun with you? He didn't realize it, but the grip of the Glock 21 was under my hand, with the gun slightly shoved muzzle first between the seat and the fold down arm rest. I asked, Do you mean this one? I lifted my hand off of the gun to expose it. He said, Thank God, I figured you would have it, but I wasn't sure. I said this one is in easy reach, the Glock 30 under my shirt is in case I need a back up. I kind of laughed, because of all of the years in Law Enforcement, patrolling areas like this was rather common. I was at ease, but vigilant. He was "freaking out." He thought areas like that only existed on TV. Yep, they want total control on guns, until they feel threatened and need one.
