I hate to generalize but those two girls were most likely liberal transplants from California where people have been bred to believe that guns only lead to bad things happening unless they are carried by a uniformed police officer. I never understood that logic myself, police are just citizens like us. I know I don't particularly feel safer in states like CA and NY where, generally speaking, carry of lethal force is legislatively monopolized by cops and crooks, which sounds a lot like the `tale of the two wolves and the sheep trying to decide what to eat for lunch.` The sheep is outvoted. That is the definition of tyranny.
I'm a transplant myself and but came to quickly realize that Nevada born and bred folk just don't care about people carrying guns around or having them in their vehicles, etc. Heck, they're probably carrying, too!
Like your escape from NY, I left the tax and freedom oppressing State of California 10 years ago next month, I can't wait to celebrate my 10 years of freedom on Thanksgiving. I never knew what freedom felt like until I moved here, I love this state!
Like you, my wife and I have our CCWs but she never carries while I often do. Sometimes I open carry and conceal carry at the same time, depending on where I'm at. It has been said, if you feel like you need to carry a gun, you probably need to carry two.
Welcome to Nevada, we need more like you!
