Fair enough. I apologize for the end comment, btw.

You gun people slay me. Literally.
I grew up in a MN hunting and fishing family. I love rifles. I don't hunt. We used to have a blast just taking them to a sand pit and shooting cans and bottles full of stuff. Shooting at targets. Whatever.

For me, it has nothing to do with killing. I have a respect for weapons and the folks I know who use them for various purposes, that's all, and I hate overgeneralizations. Many of the folks I know who carry (I don't) are either former military, LEOs or fireman, hunters, or family members of those groups.

You know whats really messed up from the anti-gun people are that they are normally the same ones supporting more lax incarceration. You see and hear about thugs with rap sheets 100ft long getting let in and out of jail here in metro Atlanta. Yet you want to do everything in your power to take away the RIGHT for the good working folks to carry.


I will say as i think i stated earlier the campus carry thing should be left to the colleges to make that call as does local bussines already do. When i go out to eat etc.. with my gun either they can be ok with it or tell me to leave. There is no criminalization of it anymore and college carry should work the same way.
