    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    Hope this helps. I like the fact that these guys knew their rights and were not about to give them up.

    We must contact our lawmakers today, tomorrow and the next day to remind them of Constitutional Carry.

    You can use the story on me if you want. If you read the comments you'll see that it was a bit controversial, include some controversy on OCDO because some people didn't like me holding a gun.

    I don't think open carry is controversial. It is the law border to border and everywhere in-between. The only thing controversial about it is the very few police officers who thought they got to decide which Constitutional Rights may be exercised.

    Constitutional carry VS Permit to carry : Why are people so willing to turn a rights into a privileges.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJQ34JTqk0I

    In the ashes burns an ember of liberty, We are the fuel to ignite the ember into a flame of liberty.

    The embodiment of our founding fathers will not be found in one man , But in Many.

    ****** give it away ( Our rights ) prostitutes sell it (Mandated training).

    If your speech teacher is a liberal, just bring in the constitution... you'll have him/her foaming at the mouth.

    Be sure to bring in a copy of the original bill of rights as well.

    When I was invited to give a presentation to UW medical school students last October I was sent a reminder that firearms are not allowed on UW property or in campus buildings. So I wore a plastic training "blue" gun in my holster. 1) because I wanted to wear something, and 2) because I gave the students a little demonstration related to the "21-foot drill."

    My "opponent" in the presentation showed up with, what appeared to me, an authentic Tommy gun! (Although I did not inspect it.)

    After the presentation ended I had a number of students swarm me to tell me how compelling they thought my demonstration was while my opponent stood idly by.

    Tell us more about how your presentation was received!
