The Walmart near me had a man with a knife stab his ex-girlfriend over the summer and hold 10 people hostage. Now this http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/10/29/...ex.html?hpt=T2
Sadly the anti's will use this as fodder to disarm law abiding OC-ers rather than encourage them to be able to defend themselves.
If guns cause crime.....mine must be defective.
Just read this story.
I am so glad Wal-mart supports Open Carry in their stores, because you never know where or when crazy will pop up.
I am guessing that he meant he looks enough like LEO/INS to scare illegal immigrants away from him. I have noticed (when I am shaved and dressed nicely) that some people that normally would avoid an LEO encounter avoid me too.

I snapped open my "Tommy's Gun Pack" and put my hand on my weapon, stopped and turned towards them. I didn't get a word out and they ran away. There were probably three or four security cars patroling the lot. I stopped one and told him what happened and gave a description. That was it. Hope them thugs will think twice about jackin' a grey haired old fart.

Some adults do ask me if I'm a cop, but it usually seems like it's the midwestern kids and punks who can already figure out I must not be.

The most important lesson I have learned from my time in the freedom movement and further studying it is that trying to create an organization without preventing the issues caused by narcissistic sociopaths and democracy is a lot like heading to sea in a sieve. It'll never work.
The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.
There you go. What would have been offensive to me, would be for him to assume that they were illegal just because they were Hispanic or just because they left. He didn't. I think you are reading too much into his post (or assuming other people will, which reflects more on you than it does on 'other people').
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

I am Israel, and I am a Hispano American, or "Hispanoamericano", no, I am not "ilegal", I am not affraid to see a "gringo" packing heat, and yes we love to talk in spanish at all times, we have our own tvs spanish channels, and radios and movies theatres, etc, why are we this way ? it is becouse USA has freedom of speach, sometimes I think that having a brown skin is a blessing and a curse, some people ,the moment they see brown skin well, they must be "ilegales" , I have a good friend here in Boise, she is from the Seyschells Islands, in Africa, she has brown skin, and she has been ask many times, in spanish, if she is an "ilegal" when she apply for a job, . I have told my friends that we the Hispanos are not the enemies , we are not bombing buildings or airplains, we love the USA thats why we flock to this country, I do really feel bless comming to this country, never had any problems whith the inmigration authorities, never asked to show my "green card" ( it is blue ), now I do not have it, becouse I became a USA citizen, but for the love of God not all of us are "ilegales", and we are not affraid of white people packing guns, I have talk to many hispanos about O.C. sometimes I wander if I can start a hispanic O.C., we are about 80.000.000 hispanics in USA, ( Maybe more or less ) and USA is the 2nd. hispanic country in the world, The Royal academy of the Spanish Language has a representative in the USA. Please be gentle whith me if you answer back my letter, Your vaquero friend Israel.
Yes, I know Marxism is in many groups, but its disheartening to see seemingly another group largely infected with it.
In my personal experience no one I meet "hates" people of hispanic origins. What most do get angry with are people that openly break our laws and expect us to change them to accomodate their whims.
My ire gets inflamed against criminals (gang members, drug runners, illegal aliens) and our government that does WORSE than turn a blind eye to the problem.
We need more people of all colors and heritages to take personal responsibilty for themselves and their communities. So work to get some of your friends to OC and take control of their self defense and protect their families!
This is a great country and I am trying to work to keep it that way.
I'm on it!
Wether Walmart or the local gas and sandwich, it doesn't matter. People are simply doing business as usual.
Doesn't matter whether I'm carrying or not. I'm going about my lawful business. Yes, I'm armed. I'm a lawully-armed, law-abiding citizen.
As has existed for more than 400 years (yes, years) of our American heritage.
Really, when are these folks going to grow a brain?
