Can we look forward to similar stories about the Star Trek fans who clean up the highways with their uniforms, phasers, and klingon battle axes. Sheesh.

Boy, next thing you know they'll be having KKK members picking up trash along 94 & Dale.

Why can't they just pick up the trash without acting like, "I'm cool, I carry a gun." What a bunch of Dirty Harry wanna bees.

Real men don't have to carry guns.

As opposed to the unarmed volunteers- are they somehow safer from being struck by a vehicle? Are THEY "nuts" as well? Or is this simply a(nother) pointless, and irrelevant from you?

Nah. KKK members are notoriously lazy. Sort of like folks who complain about others picking up trash while sitting in front of her computer.

Thanks for giving up your Sunday to help pick up after selfish drivers who can't keep themselves from littering.

Mr. Ferraro, it's not conceal and carry. It's CARRY. Conceal or not at permit holder's discretion. Learn a bit about the subject you are writing about before cranking out the story. And Debbie, you're an idiot with a remark about "Real" men.

Bravo to any group that would take their personal time to clean up other peoples' disgusting garbage and urine-filled beverage bottles.

Actually they were out there looking for their next meal. Super Wall Mart told them to stay out of the dumpsters and get back to their cardboard boxes. And leave the shopping carts

Sorry to rain on your shrill tantrum, Pooky.....but are you implying that all the Law Enforcment Officers, and the Men and Women of the military are "compensating"?

And heres a bit of reality snookums....severals years ago I kept an intruder from robbing my wife I and by pointing my hand held bang stick between his eyes...no, it did not make me a real Man, my wife thinks I made the grade without the pistol.

BUT...it did make my family safer.

So the in the unfortunate event you and your "real man" have to face a similar situation, ask yourself what he will do in the face of a mugger after he is done wetting himself.

So how many people had their heads blown off. How many accidentally shot themselves? How many armed robberies were there? None? Really? I would have never expected that with such a dangerous group. Did any garbage get picked up? A lot? Wow. Soooo, what's the story here?

What about real women? Are we also subject to your contempt when we carry?!

I am so glad I can legally carry a gun, and I do carry everywhere it is legally allowed. Look how all the anti-gun folk get all riled up! Haha.

" "Now, if we had the perverts and pedophiles out there, that would be a different story." - Yeah, it would be justice. We should have all of the prisoners our there, chained together for OUR safety, cleaning the roads. Or is that cruel and unusual punishment?
