    Ahhh, yes, "respect". That seems to be sorely lacking in our society these days. The lack of it also shows up on this board now and then.

    It does go a long way, but I think it's a foreign concept to most people.

    It's my right and I sure as hell care what others think about it, which is why I use "common sense." I'm 31.

    I think that folks who don't respect others have no respect for themselves...and that's so unfortunate!

    Yep, people that don't RESPECT others right to do what they want (as long as it doesn't infringe on any others rights) in a free country like our is, or used to be anyways....sucks.

    The pushing of morals and "holier than thou" attitudes are not what "Freedom" is about......................

    I am not trying to say anything bad about anyone here or tick anyone off. , I just get the message that some who answered this are saying in a round-about way that those that exercise their rights in a way they wouldn't approve of... are not deserving of the same "respect" they say is so important to them and that they give others by the way they themselves practice their rights. (that would be defined by the word hypocrisy)

    Sure, it is rude the way some have acted in public as far as how they decided to practice their rights...... It is also rude to call them names or attack them for it (not that any of you have outright). Our Freedoms belong to each and every one of us..... not just those who are considerate of others.

    I don't know, maybe I am just reading too much into some of the responses. If I am, I am sorry.

    I just turned 53. I've learned to chose my battles wisely. Beware of Pyrrhic victories. I'd have to go with #2.
    A government that abrogates any of the Bill of Rights, with or without majoritarian approval, forever acts illegitimately, becomes tyrannical, and loses the moral right to govern.

  10. I dipped my 1911 in fluorescent orange plasti-dip, is that bad? It is a bit thicker now. That's OK though because I have big hands.

  11. It doesn't say "The right to keep and bear arms where people won't be upset or offended shall not be infringed". If I asked someone who is talking into their cell phone loudly using profanity in a public place where I have my kids to knock it off, I get told it's a free country and that I should mind my own business. You see something objectionable on TV or hear it on the radio, you get told that if you don't like it, you can just change the station. Free speech, right?

    So why is it that if I want to carry an orange AK in a place where I am legally allowed to, I have to modify my behavior (protected by the same Constitution that protects objectionable speech) to make other people more comfortable? The same people, for the most part, who will argue that their right to free speech is more important than my comfort then turn around and say that their right to be comfortable is more important than my right to keep and bear? And I'm supposed to "respect" that? When they have no respect for me?

    They say "It's legal to put this filth on the radio, TV, and movies. So you old fashioned people just have to deal with it." I say "It's legal to carry this firearm. So you ignorant or power hungry (one or the other) people just have to deal with it." What's the difference? I can change the station. You can go somewhere else. Sounds fair.
