I just wanted to share this... maybe more informaiton about 2A should be made into commericals etc.
Just the other day, I helped older woman into her house. We got to talk about how the neighborhood is getting bad. I had mention to her that she may want to start "pack'n". She replyed with, she want too, but the thugs are "so bad"???? We got to talk more about CCW and OCing. Even as a 60+year old woman, she thought it was ONLY legal to OC was in Texas. With the myth, she thought cons and thugs can just buy any gun at the local store like buying pizza!!!! I had to explain the legal process how a con cannot buy one and in may cases cannot even touch a gun. So really anything they do is already illegal.
So, we talked about how OCing is basically your right and its a tool for self defense like carrying a pocket knife.... which oddly carries the same charge as having gun with out a CCW.
In short, she was pretty enlighten and headed for Calbelas thursday to get her first hand gun. I did suggest applying for her CCW and go to the range to practice for a bit. She isn't too much into computers and online, but I gave her this website.
In general, as I said before, education is the key, the more people know about their rights and how to apply it, the more people will excerise it.
Agree! Edjucation is needed.
The more you know, the more you know.
I have had several conversations with folks who were not anti-gun, but really didn't see a need for it, that have turned very fruitful. Intelligent, calm conversations work wonders.
