I certainly am not in the Martin camp. However the kid he killed life is ruined. Zimmerman can move on and rebuild his life. It pisses me off that this will lead to riots, and that worthless shitbags took advantage of this situation. That said I hope those who choose to pack a gun grasp that doing so can lead to something like this. I have no issue with the right to carry, nor the right to defend yourself. I do pickup a cowboy attitude from some who carry. Kind of like some people I have crossed in life that get a power trip on when given authority. Most have met a guy who was a dork or whatever and became a cop or boss and turned into Johnny Badass. Some who have conceal and carry strike me similar~"
"I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6
No badass here & never the aggressor but assault me, try to rob me, try to hurt one of my family members and you will be shot.. It's that simple. I never show my concealed carry to anyone, I have never had to pull my concealed weapon on anyone or even close to it... I have gotten into heated arguments with people while carrying and never once did I think of shooting the person...
Bottom line is, don't put your hands on people.. I don't"
This is the exchange between you and I, which brought my viewpoint into question to begin with. Now you return with the attempt to appear to ask an innocent question. It is perplexing that you would attempt this tactic in a forum where I or anyone can simply pull up previous posts where the subject was broached and clearly answered...to you. It is poor form, and makes one wonder why you would need to try such a tacky ploy...did I strike a nerve?
Your blanket statements don't sit to well with me to be honest... The ones who carry that you know about may indeed be cocky or arrogant or however you perceive them but for ever 1 person you know are carrying there are hundreds you don't... Do you sit in restaurants and look around at people and say, damn, that person looks like an ass, I bet he has a CCW
.. I don't personally know many people that carry but there are assholes in any group... Have you ever thought that maybe it could just be you that's the asshole and not the person you are stereotyping?
