    Well, nobody beat you to it Did the reporter give you a heads up that it was posted? Not a bad article overall, although she did manage to neglect to mention that the restaurant CC bill prohibited drinking while CCing...

    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.

    She said it would be WED. I think she did a good job.. I posted comments too but they are held for 24 hours I guess. Registering is a pain.. but I see a couple of "NO's" have already hiot the poll.. it is in pecent and not actual votes..

    A couple of more ignorant anti gun comments on there now.

    You know, if I knew WHEN I would need a gun to defend myself, I would avoid going there in the first place. The point is I can't know when I will need a gun anymore than i can provide a schedule of unplanned network outages or server crashes at work.

    When I had to shoot at a coyote in my backyard that was approaching my kids and appeared unafraid - did I know ahead of time I would need to?

    Meanwhile some of the other comments are equally ridiculous.

    The comment by twhtwh is simply typical of those who hate the individual liberty supposedly guaranteed by our republic. They favor instead the mob rule mentality of democracies, whose tyrannies have been well known since the days of Plato. The tactics of anti gun folks like them are to belittle, dismiss and shout down, to rule by mob mentality. When the anti gun crowd shouted down pro gun speakers in the GA hearings , it reminded me of the tactics of another group of so called guardians of the decent majority in 1930's Germany, where anyone who dared speak against their orthodoxy was shouted down, at best. Perhaps many of the antis were not loved as a child, and find a fundamental need for the approval of the world community, and to be so willing to sacrifice our Liberty to get that approval from their socialist comrades .

    Meanwhile, the comment by stephen is just more of the same - mob rule. He feels that since he pays taxes, the police officers should not follow the law, but should instead listen to the mob mentality of the anti gun folks. For him to claim to not be anti gun, but then turn around and be against the right to actually CARRY the gun is like someone who agrees with free speech, so long as you remain silent. A pandora's box indeed.

    The poll probably won't be up much longer as they usually leave them for a week. If you are bored and have nothing to do you may as well hit it (if you have not) just to put the final number even more in our favor go ahead and comment then too if you have not already.

    Might not be a bad idea to invite a local reporter to any OC dinner. With articles like this that show folks really don't have a problem with others carrying and how no other patrons even knew they had guns would fill the pages with positive articles on guns versus the normal one on who shot who tonight, and another helpless victim attacked.

    The vast majority of citizens who fear guns may not except for all the negative media coverage on them. Its no wonder why people are scared when all they are told of is violence. Show some good and people will feel more apt to not be so scared when a law abiding citizen is carrying. Its too bad that the media would rather pass along the horrors in life than the good because it sells better.
