    Its absolutely amazing that so many people believe that gun owners are time bombs waiting to go off and all we want to do is kill and intimidate others.

    I know that for me, carrying a gun has made me more courteous and respectful of others. I am less likely to engage in an argument with someone in public because I carry a gun. I'll stand my ground when need be but its easier just to walk away from jerks.

    I would like to point out, that while getting your vote in is a good thing, read this article, it is very interesting and perhaps a good read...

    Here is one thing I read:
    “We think that states issuing (permits) to non-residents is bad policy,” Rand said. “It’s a way for people to get (permits) despite not being able to qualify in their own state, sometimes because of a criminal history.” For instance, some states count only criminal convictions against an applicant, while others may take arrest records into account.
    Are there really states that will deny you for being arrested with no conviction? Anyone can be arrested for any reason, and be later found totally innocent. In fact sometimes people get arrested only because the officers misunderstood the law.

    Haven't seen anyone post this interesting paragraph from the article:

    “Firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens prevent 1 million robberies, murders and rapes every year,” said John Pierce, a Virginia-based gun-rights activist with opencarry.org. That’s at least partly due to the huge increase in “shall-issue” states, which has been “the most significant beneficial public policy move in my lifetime,” said the 41-year-old Pierce.

    It is more a statement about them as anyone else. I think subconsciously they know how they would act so they believe everyone else would do the same.
