    I have seen a few on this site and some of them I have to look up. Just putting this up here as a quick reference guide.

    OC=Open Carry

    CC=Concealed Carry

    CPL=Concealed Pistol License

    CCW-Carrying Concealed Weapons

    MWAG=Man With A Gun

    PFZ=Pistol Free Zone(s)

    RKBA=Right to Keep and Bear Arms

    AG=Attorney General

    NRA=National Rifle Association

    IWB=Inside Waist-Band


    Feel free to add to this list

    I'm not a lawyer, psychologist, or LEO. This means, don't rely on my opinion to work for you.
    But I am a railroad conductor.

    LAC = Law Abiding Citizen
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    when i first came to this site, i spent an hour or more trying to figure out what mwag meant. Some possible answers from google:

    The Media Workers Association of Grenada
    Mafia Wars Asia Group
    Meredith Whitney Advisory Group LLC
    Midwest Agriculture
    miscible water- alternating-gas


    Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? (who will watch the watchmen?)

    I am not a lawyer. Nothing in any of posts should be construed as legal advice.

    People on discussion forums use this, too, when they don't like what someone has posted but lack the verbal ability to reply in a comprehenisble manner. It's kind of humorous.

    Hank, you missed one in your mile long post.

    SA: Situational Awareness.


    "Fault always lies in the same place, my fine babies: with him weak enough to lay blame." - Cort

    Gun control is like trying to reduce Drunk Driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

    Sentio aliquos togatos contra me conspirare.

    The answer to "1984" is "
    1776"

    With freedom comes much responsibility. It is for this reason so many are loathe to exercise it.
