    "I asked him if he was carrying a gun because he hoped to or expected to shoot someone someday.
    The phone suddenly went dead."

    Like many people, he appears to have bought into the fantasy that he will someday thwart a crime by packing heat.
    I bet at least 30 people at VT were having that fantasy their last minute of life.

    I wonder if this moron 'seate' ever considered their last thoughts?

    Next time, can you answer, "No, but newspaper columnists are a different story."

    Well, at least some pro-self-defense info got into print.

    I liked the way he put the column together. Creative and smooth to read, even if I disagree with most of what he says. Too bad he can't devote those talents to helping ensure decent folks survive criminal encounters.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    What a weird guy; you should of heard him on the phone; he calls me & starts off asking me to explain my opposition to the exploitation of the Courthouse gun ban loophole by the PA Dept of General Services to apply to the entire huge multi-acre Capitol building complex, and next thing you know, he's freaking out, asking me if I want to kill people or if "murdering someone is the American dream."

    I politely ended the call and hung up.

    Wow - they need to start requiring licenses to be a memebr of the press . . . oops, the Supreme Couirt ruled a long time ago that this could not be required on account of the First Amendment.Hmmmmmmm.

    So, he basically lied about why you hung up? And how you ended off?

    I'm guessing its time to get a phone that records the call. When you get an antagonistic call, just e-mail them the recording before they have time to go to press.

    Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
