I was not gonna find myself in an interstate rest area at 3:00 am, having to defend my family without some serious backup. I certainly am not advocating illegal carry but I will say that me and my family will continue to be protected regardless of what the fickle gov't says.
    I understand JJ, and back you up. I feel that it is total BS that we have to get permission to have a gun with us at all. I am just saying be careful. I feel that SOME police and local governments get more of a jolly out of putting the hammer down on a good citizen than they do the bad one. I don't understand why, but I hate to see the good guys get it over something so stupid as you can have a gun here, but not there. Peace.

    Does he have do it to make a point Meaning does anyone who opens carry have a point to make when they open carry? Just because you can should be enough reason to do it

    Thanks for the supportive words, HGT. Understand that I do not, by any means, carry illegally on a regular basis. It's maybe more like I'm nonchalant about the sporadic times when I find myself in that position. I don't tend to over-react: "Ahh, stuff it in the glove box for the next couple hours, whatever". Maybe I should.

    As for protecting my family years ago on cross-country trips, there was just never any question in my mind that there was going to be a serious weapon in the vehicle. Would I risk a bit of jail time to afford my familly the best personal protection that I could? Absolutely; without question.

    When I grew up, guns were plentiful, thought of as tools, treated with respect, and not a big deal. I guess I just kinda still operate with that attitude.

    I have always traveled with firearms. From coast to coast and north to south. Was worried in places like Chicago, NJ, DC but the worry over scum assaulting family or myself overruled the fear of "smokey".

    I like your style, 06. Tells me a lot about who's going to have my back when the SHTF and the gov't attempts to disarm the American people. Right on, brother.
