Yay, I'm a good guy!
The difference between good guys and bad guys
"...Contrast that with the scenario played out on Aug. 15 down in SeaTac, where dozens of open carry activists gathered at an apartment complex for an annual barbecue. There were lots of people, both male and female, legally packing firearms, having a good time, and nobody suffered so much as a scratch. These are the good guys."
Or try this:

Guns don't kill people, bullets do!
Good write up...
Shows a stark contrast between a group of law abiding, armed citizens at a picnic (Willow Lake) vs. a group of drunken a-holes with guns at a picnic (Lk Samamish)
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...mamish21m.html...Keovongphet, 33, of Kent, and Justin Cunningham, 30, of South Seattle, were killed Saturday night when an altercation between two groups erupted into gunfire at Lake Sammamish State Park. The King County Sheriff's Office says members of both groups have gang affiliations and is investigating whether that played a role in the shootings.
Relatives of both slain men say they were not gang members.
...Cunningham had no prior felony convictions, prosecutors said.
*I'd be inclined to believe the prosecutor's office in this instance.
I love this column Dave. It's right on the money!

Sorry to set off your argue alarm...
My comment was drawing a parallel between the points he made and similar events that took place where the attendees were armed.
You disagree that at one event a group of citizens gathered, armed, and enjoyed each others company in a safe and respectful manner while at the other a group of armed, drunken hooligans opened fire and endangered public safety?
My post was ambiguous at best but not intended to garner your ire.
Ambiguous yes - ire no. PM sent.
I'm gonna go read this at a Starbucks.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." -John Stuart Mill
