    OC in Sunday Seattle Times

    Unfortunately in the Rant & Rave column.
    "RANT To the woman who felt it necessary to wear her holstered revolver in plain sight at a holiday-packed Bellevue Mall. I'm sure your felt you looked hot in your tight, all black outfit with knee-high boots and the gun at your hip hauling your husband and toddler son around, but the rest of us thought you looked like an insensitive clod as the children and parents watched you in fear."

    So now that person is making assumptions for everyone else.

    By the way the description does sound quite attractive.

    Hey now, if the child was young enough, maybe it was wearing a Tactical Assault High Capacity Diaper and maybe that was what the hoplophobe was really afraid of!

    Damn, sounds like they should have posted a pic!

    Probably authored by some tree-huggin', granola-eatin', horse-faced hag. Haters gonna hate.

    Too bad the fool didn't understand the lesson of misplaced fear. Sounds like someone with projection issues.

    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    Had an encounter like this outside Trader Joes not too long ago, the guy kept saying how people feel not even man enough to cough up to his own feelings on the matter all though they were all too apparent.

    I recorded part of that conversation. I asked him if people were afraid of a black man should he leave, he mentioned something about people not controlling their ethnicity, I told him that I am not talking about people controlling their ethnicity but their unreasonable fear.

    why is it that the second a uniform comes into play people suddenly feel "at ease" when in reality the uniformed individual is more likely to draw their gun during a disturbance.

    but a lady with her family is SCARY? hmmmm

    Conditioning by the State, by the media and by society. That conditioning evolves into serial misinformation and social bigotry.

    Not only that, but just as a recent shoot-out in New York showed, all the injured innocent victims who happened to be in the vicinity when the Police had a shoot-out with a criminal, were in fact shot by Police Officers and not by the criminal. This is basically the case time and again across the country.

    Making armed LEO's far more dangerous to unarmed citizens, then Armed LAC's are, and amed LEO's should cause greater fear among the general population then seeing openly armed citizens.

    Some of the replies to that rant were priceless though, didn't one say something to the effect of "Stay the little b***h you are and live to see another day"?

    Must not have been all that "hot". The person noticed the gun. I've seen some really hot gals in my life that I wouldn't have noticed a gun, her boots, or even the husband and child

    The observer was probably another limp wristed seattle eunuch that only goes for the "patty Murray in flannel" look.
