    On guns and the 'open carry' movement;

    Let's call the members of the "open carry" movement, who promote the right to carry guns in public, what they are: selfish and egotistical. They love the attention they get walking the streets with a pistol on their hip, and they don't give a damn if it frightens people like me and my kids.

    what a bunch of whiny arrogant self-centered ignorant idiots!

    And to think I used to live in that ridiculous hell hole of a place!

    All I can say is the logic on some of those comments means that (according to the posters) since cars kill people those need to be banned, since knives kill people those need to be banned, and since sun kills people we need to ban that too!

    WOW!!! That is about all I can say right now....

    If you really feel that way, why are you here? To stir things up and make people angry? You should know that you are not going to convert anyone to your way of thinking on this forum. The OCers I know do not carry to get attention; most people don't even notice an OCer or notice the gun until some minutes have passed. Why does it frighten you and your kids? What exactly makes you more afraid of a gun you CAN see over a gun you CAN'T see (concealed)? The Washington State Supreme court has ruled in a past case that the prescence of a properly holstered firearm carried openly does not warrant alarm in a reasonable person. From that, I would have to conclude that you are not a reasonable person. Most gun people I know who carry, openly or concealed, carry for personal protection, as I do. A gun carried openly is also a deterrent to crime; very few criminals will attack a person who is visibly armed. They also will not attack another person in the prescense of the armed person. A gun is an inanimate object, incapable of doing anything on it's own. Far more people die in automobile accidents every year than die from being shot. Are you also afraid of cars? Is it OC in particular or just guns in general that you dislike? If you don't like open carry, then I suggest you don't do it! If it's guns in general that you don't like, please tell me what your gun free plan is to save yourself and your family when criminals break into your house at 2am.

    OK. I'm over it.
    Lac of knowledge and the 1st amendment can lead to this kind of slander.

    At first I thought “Troll"?

    Then I looked at the date Red joined and seen that it was Aug,2008 and thought that can’t be right. I’d better read the link.
    As for what my actions do to effect others sense of well being or not. If I make people feel all warm and fuzzy inside or strike fear into someone unreasonable, is of little consequence to me. I feel sorry for them that they have a problem with something. But it is of little significance for I can’t dictate my life based on what I do in a legal and Law abiding way. I see it as discrimination on their part. And their discriminating actions will not define me or cause me to conform to their world. It is as unreasonable for them to be upset with me for having a gun as it would be for me to hate them. Or for me to be upset with them for not having one.

    That's okay, Ruby. It's understandable that, not knowing Redboneshadow like some of us that you might get confused at his post. I can vouch for him, though. He's very much pro 2A and even heads a group called Citizens For the Second Amendment. I've been for an OC walk with him in West Seattle.

    He's one of the good guys.

    Apology for not using quote function

    Did not mean to anger anyone. I have not used the new forum in a while and will acclimate myself as to it's functions. It is as much my fault as anyone else. Being human at times can nbe an error just in it's self. Once again sorry for any confusion.

    Angry

    Guns are for killing. When you go to the beach, take a surfboard, take a Frisbee, take a guitar or take a California girl. Leave the death machine at home (where your 9-year-old can kill his 2-year-old brother with it).

    What a *******. Read the link and all of these people sound like uneducated idiots who just listen to the antigun propaganda and have never even heard, or won't open their ears to, the other side.

    How do these people even feel comfortable in their own skin. I wonder how they would feel standing in the middle of a big group of bikers, or a bunch of gothic kids just hanging out, or a bunch of big muscle bound black men, or a bunch of kids saggin with hoodies? Where does thier whining and complaining stop. If they are so afraid there are places they can move to that does not want to honor our constitution, and are trying to dissolve America from the inside out. Hell go to Illinois for god sake, Move to E. St. Louis, and see how you feel about legally carrying.

    I was born there, G-ma and G-pa lived there till there death in the early 70's and there were some beautiful houses. My G-pa built a fireproof house on Avon pl cause G-ma fell asleep in bed with a lit cigarette. Little did he know that that house would save my sisters life in the early 80's due to a drive by. Found out if was bullet proof too and white people werent welcome. In about 15 years the place turned into a trash pit. I moved into a mobile home for about 2 months when I was 17 and found out how unwelcome I was by a shot gun. Had I been on the crapper...well anyway. I always carried a 25 in my back pocket while I lived there, and was less worried about being caught with it, then I was about being caught with out it. I hate to think how it is now. I remember as a kid about 5 running up and down the street 5 or 6 blocks down by a church and not even a care in the world.

    I was not trying to be disrespectful of any place anyone comes from. I was just stating the fact that it is not a "people" friendly place to live, in my own unique way.

    Hope I didnt offend or upset ya'.

    You're right, I don't give a damn if it frightens you or your wife and kid. Just as I wouldn't give a damn if the color blue scared someone who had an irrational fear of primary colors, as I wouldn't give a damn if someone was afraid of me driving my car at the speed limit because it can crash and hurt others, and as I wouldn't give a damn if someone were afraid of a pool in my backyard because they never learned to swim. Get over yourself, you're just not so important that I really even consider you when I decide that my life and the life of my girlfriend is worth defending.

    IF you were legally carrying in E. St. Louis, you would probably be the ONLY one doing so.

    This city would make a good candidate for a "penal colony" as portrayed in the movie Escape from New York. Too bad it's not an island so we could just barricade or blow up the bridges.
