    Our rights are paramount.
    how each of us chooses to exercise our rights is up to us individually and everyone else should just keep their nose out of it.

    LT are you still in the Navy? And do you still have that clearance?

    Had the gun been concealed the bad guy wouldnt have known it was there.
    I'll try to find the story again and post it when I do.

    I am still in the Navy. I am no longer in the position which requires the clearance.

    Seriously, it's common knowledge...it's not that big of a deal. Just a minute, I have to see what those guys in suits that just got out of the black SUV knocking at my door want...

    I know the story, NavyLT has provided a link for. The problem is, it happened in Wisconsin. They don't allow concealed carry there at all.

    I also have to add, there is some skepticism in certain circles that the event may have been "staged," as they are trying to push for a concealed carry law. And at the time, the democratic governor and others had said "they don't need concealed carry, since they can carry openly."

    They have a Republican in office now, and control of both houses, so maybe they'll get a concealed carry law passed this time. Assuming they can get the democratic lawmakers to return and iron out the rest of their legislative problems.

    An unarmed person speaking of the benefits of gun control is like a

    Somehow, I don't think he's gonna change his handle. Unless the forum owner lets him.

    But it will be in my signature line! I've been selected for LCDR (Lieutenant Commander). It's just a matter of Congress freeing up money in the budget for the actual promotion and pay raise. Supposedly June 1, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Say what you want but federal gun free zones are "federal" and LEO's from out of state are subject to the LAW, don't agree with it, but if you are going to enforce the LAW on Law abiding citizens then why not on LEO's, fairness doctrine>
