    Only my closest friends know that I carry; and they almost all carry too. It is my right to be armed and am not paranoid because I am armed and know that I have the means of self-defense.There might not be an even distribution of had guys, but they are everywhere and always have been. I live in a very safe rural area but there is still violent crime. If I never have a problem, being armed and safe costs nothing. For those who chose not to carry and are confronted with a dangerous situation it could be very costly.

    Hey SR40c, did your last avatar beat the crap out of your new avatar?
    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    I open carry, so I do carry a sign around, and I have not been in a discussion with someone thinking I'm paranoid.

    Though if I do...I'll probably quickly look over my shoulder...tell them, "they're here...I gotta go..." and briskly trot away...

    Florida isn't a truly open carry state so we can't do that except under certain circumstance, but a shop t-shirt is a dead giveaway. Or an NRA t-shirt. As we don't hide the fact that we do handle guns, most everyone expects that we are carrying. And we do get customers that way. Paranoid, nope. Prepared, yep!

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.

  8. I've never had to defend my self-defense beliefs to anyone in person. Never had a conversation with an anti. Strange.

    Maybe because I live in a pro gun state, and quit attending college 35 years ago, I escaped socialist doctrine now taught in our so called institutions of higher learning. We had plenty of civil issue based, "lively" discussions at the professors' insistence, which often resulted in raised voices, but no present day discussions of leftist buffoonery.

    I lived in Metro areas for a small portion of my life, but never had the pro-gun, anti-gun conversation with anyone.

    What a pathetic, sheltered life I've followed?

    Lucky, probably. If it happened, I would have dismissed them as fast as they dismissed me. Then on to whatever business was at hand.

    It's not paranoia if they're really after you.

    Actually Paranoia is the irrational fear of a mechanical device somehow being evil and threating ie: GUN.

    Why should I waste my time and breath with an answer? I really could not care less what anyone else thinks and if they think I am paranoid, that is their problem not mine--if they insist and demand answers I will tell them to pound salt--that should do it. With friends like that who needs enemies and, being paranoid, I find that this entire country is up for grabs and if they want to just koombayah through life at this time--have at it--just stay the hell away from me.
