    Pardner, it's time to pack piece away

    For a little while on Wednesday, the Pike Place Market looked like the set of "Deadwood. " Men and women were sauntering around with their guns strapped to their sides, cups of coffee in their hands, just like Al Swearengen, my favorite character on the late HBO series.

    Another ignorant reporter not doing her research. This is what we were to expect from the libtard Seattle media from this event. This is exactly why I decided against going that morning even though I had planned to.

    We've been painted ugly, again.

    I would be willing to wager that we all will still be carrying our guns, wherever, long afterSHE is either fired or just goes away.

    Another example of a reporter citing an example that has no weight. When it comes to our right to bear arms, they cite these little examples (the incident in the park) as reason why law abiding citizens shouldn't be carrying guns... because something might happen?

    Last I checked I might die in a car crash today, get ecoli at the restaurant tonight, or break my ankle playing basketball tomorrow morning... but you won't see me refrain from any of those activities. The notion of not doing somethingbecause something bad MIGHT happen is no way to live.

    Could you imagine if anything that was feared by someone in the public was outlawed? Clothing, motorcycles, sports cars, pickup trucks, pocket knives.

    Honestly I'm more worried about people's dogs than I am guns. Can we outlaw dogs in public?

    Isn't it strange that people like her scream like a stepped on cat when anyone talks about limiting the actions of the press. First Amendment becomes their battle cry. Ok, so they get theirs and the 2nd is not equally important???????? Perhaps when they were reading the Bill of Rights, they read the First Amendment and then stopped. After they got those rights they felt were important, the rest didn't matter. When will the idiots in the News Media realize that the Bill of Rights is a complete document, every part of which is essential to the well being of this country. It is not a Chinese Menu that you can order "One from Column A, one from Column C, and I don't want any of the rest".

    Lack of clothes is outlawed in a number of places and in some place it causes refusal of service.

    Motorcycles should be glorified as the efficient risk/reward machines they are.

    Sports cars are a status symbol. Some of them need to be banned.

    All three of my trucks are rediculously expensiveenvironmental disasters. They also need to be banned.

    My pocket knife is banned in the State of Washington and I could face serious penalties on possession alone.

    I've been attacked by large dogs when I was still a child. Once when I was on my bicycle and the dog's owner had him on a leash. The big lunk was scampering towards me pulling the owner with him. Large aggressive dangerous dogs shouldn't be banned. They should be locked up. Certain dogs are banned inurban areas.

    I fear almost everyone else driving on the 405 with me.

    Honestly, I don't know why anyone reads Ms. Brodeur's column. It's almost like having your dentist drill out a cavity without numbing your mouth up first.

    I can't read any of the Times or the P.I.'s editorials or columns with feeling my blood pressure rise considerably.

    I imagine she furiously twittered this on her phone while sipping coffee. IN HER CAR. GOING TEN UNDER. IN TWO LANES.

    You know, I actually very much believe in people's right to not live in fear or be scared because someone's open carrying. It's quite an easy solution, which I'll take from Deros: Grow a pair and quit being scared! Problem solved!

    Hmm. Now I don't feel like part of the group anymore. I can't saunter. I even took classes to try to learn and the teacher told me I would never be able to saunter in a manner that would convey my proper contempt for the safety of others. It was sooo humiliating.

    That's quite the statistical sampling you got there, Nicole.

    You'd think that in the google era we'd see an uptick in the quality of work produced by these people. Instead, they seem to get even lazier. Either that, or they have an agenda. Hmm...

    I wouldn't be surprised to see more opposition spun this way, since their old tactics have failed so miserably.

    And the sad part is that since her piece is on a newspaper website, some impressionable college kid can use it as a cited reference for some anti-gun crap.

    I don't saunter - it gets entirely the wrong sort of attention from some guys

    "Nor does it reinforce the oft-repeated defense that the majority of gun owners put safety first and understand the weight of their weapons."

    I think most of us understand the weight of our weapons ... that's why we usually wear belts made for carry to keep them from pulling down our pants ...
