    Thanks for posting this!
    Troy is also an OC friendly City! We've had meet ups there!
    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!
    I worked 24/7 for 2A OC rights! Don't like what I did? Try it yourself, it was my full time job!

    Saw that - put a smile on my face.

    Criminals don't pay any attention to signs - we already knew that.

    Even with the pro slant, the media got it wrong. The bank president did not prevent/foil the robbery - he did detain the BG in the parking lot. Acknowledge that was a good thing.

    I would agree he did not 'prevent' the robbery...however, I would say he did 'foil' and 'detained' the robber. The perp was unsuccessful in carrying out the robbery, therefore it was foiled; and then he and another great citizen held (detained) the perp until LEO arrived to clean up. Just my perspective.

    I must have missed that news. Why would they kick out a stock holder?

    Very interesting perspective.

    A clarion call to all citizens that the police are not likely ever to be where they are needed most. Self reliance is the key in our society today. This incident is exactly what the media needs to be relating to the citizenry continually, as a example of self reliance and the importance of our fundamental rights, and the lawfull exercise thereof as citizens of this great country......wait, did I state media?.....never mind.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    For clarity only, it always has been, it is what this country is founded upon, too many just lost sight of it.

    Out the door, going to work on our OC rights. It's political open saeson, be part of the problem or be part of the solution. If we don't get out out there and volunteer to do the footwork, we harvest what we sow! SQUAT!
    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!
