I believe our expression of "you guys" translates out to "All y'all".
"Y'all" is singular, and "All y'all" is plural.

She can actually carry in OK if she has an NJ permit, because OK recognizes all other state permits... That's pretty cool.

It's too bad that it's such a hassle and expense to get an OK resident permit.
(Easier than NJ though!)

It's been all over the news here.

The old saying is still accurate...
When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

I'm not surprised you don't have an NJ permit...
The way I understand it, mere mortals aren't allowed to get one.

Terrible that churches need security guards. We have a lot of crazy people running loose.

Actually, if the people in the church are right with God,
they don't need to worry one way or the other.
(And no, I'm NOT being insensitive, I'm just telling it like I know it.)

We went to Mass in downtown Denver over Memorial Day weekend, and they had a police officer assigned as security.
The homeless are often mentally ill and they came in off the streets to sleep. They can be also be drunk and disorderly. I told the cop lady I had her back after one surly drunk got a little loud.

For the most part the homeless are just trying to stay warm, but one never knows.
