    Would you go deep cover concealed or comply?

    This is hypothetical, a sort of ethics question I guess. It's not meant to stir up election debates.

    All types? As in hunting and range trips too? I'd have to invoke some kind of civil disobedience to get my "blowing-stuff-up-gratuitously" time in. We used to do "drive-bys" on deer-crossing signs in the country until they made it a felony to discharge a gun from a car (to discourage gang stuff). Might have to resurrect that in some form if they banned all of it otherwise. That or set up ad hoc basement ranges, perhaps.

    I unfortunately lost all my guns in a tragic boating accident, so I wouldn't be able to carry anyway...

    Scotty, did you go sailing across that corn field again? I told you before that dirt will foul the motor.

    Live openly. When they (CLEO, NitroVictim ad nauseam tyrant's teeth) come for my guns then decide right then and there if life in such a society is living.

    Aren't you and Ted protected under HR 218?
    I know Ted is.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I quit being aDeputy Sheriffin 1995. Now I have to get "permission" to carry a concealed weapon to defend myself against all the BG's I dealt with as a sworn officer. Pretty stupid isn't it? I guess the government doesn't trust me anymore.

    One more thing that I HATE about this bill!

    Only "retired" police officers are covered by this bill and with that, it leads me to believe that this was written into law as a "perk" for those that served out their 20 years.

    Who are they to say that five years of honorable police service makes me less capable of making sound decisions with a firearm than some guy that most likely did 15 years on the road and then settled out the rest of his time behind a desk? (yeah, yeah, I know that this doesn't apply to all LEOs).

    Both of us are academy graduates. Why does he get to carry concealed to protect himself from BGs and not ALL former LEOs if it isn't a "perk"? Is his judgement better than mine? This is BS IMHO.

    For the record, I think it is BS that any free man be forced to apply to the state for "Permission" to defend himself.

    I think it would be highly unlikely that the feds would or could invoke such a law. Not impossible, but not likely. These are state issues, not federal.

    Still I am not so naive as to believe that none of this cannot or will not come to pass. Just one more reason not to trust government and to watch them like a hawk.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    I use this ALLOT on this forum and others.. but I wonder how many have read it and understand what I'm saying by quoting Thomas Jefferson?

    And so my Answer to the OP is:

    "And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms....The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants"

    Thomas Jefferson in a letter to William S. Smith in 1787. Taken from Jefferson, On Democracy 20, S. Padover ed., 1939

    edit: really must use spell check BEFORE posting...
