Splitting hairs, is still splitting hairs. In this case we're talking about a Sheriff who's gotten fed up with the judicial system and all that comes with it, can't say that I blame him. He's encouraged citizens to do more for themselves in the form of protection via a weapon. I'm all for that just as long as the permit holder is competent and abides by the law as well as common sense.
I also think some drivers above age 80 have ZERO business behind the wheel of any vehicle----which in the proper circumstance, can prove more dangerous than some loon with a hip holster and peacemaker in plain view. Jesus Christ this ain't that simple.
Further it's not a case of being uncomfortable when you see someone carrying a gun. It's a case of the ambulance chaser who's just around the freaking corner, and the left wing lunatic who's just sitting and waiting to change the freaking law ( WHEN SOMEONE COMPLAINS ) So my point is very very simple--------inviting a debate that nothing good can come from is at best ASININE, and at worst, just plain STUPID AS HELL.
Millions of dollars worth of revenue in my state has gone to the State Police as a result of Indiana gun laws, this means many many people can be affected by some loon who open carries and refuses to cooperate with police when asked to conceal the weapon. Did you know that in most every state one can carry a long gun most anywhere without ANY PERMIT WHATSOEVER.
Why not strap on an AR---and be done with it..
Or a gas semi auto 12 gauge assault ???????
Just insane. Just insane period.
I'd hate to tell you all the places I've taken a weapon, but NO ONE HAS EVER KNOWN ABOUT IT------------It's safer that way, smarter that way, and above all I don't have to deal with any idiots asking me any stupid questions.
I've never had anyone except for my wife, to ever ask anything. I write that off to the carry method and if I some day have to leave it at home because of someone who wants to cause a stupid scene in public, then I won't be real happy. Then, and only then, will I ever scream about the 2nd amendment in public.
Up until then I just keep mine concealed. Cole
