I am angry not just over gas prices, but on a different thing. I am angry because I live within walking distance to my job and want to walk there, it's a couple blocks away. Want to know why I don't? Sex offenders. Sex predators. I rather drive my car than risk getting picked up by one of them. It's early in the morning and I don't get off until the evening. No one would notice me getting grabbed. I want to save gas that way, but I can't over having about 100 offenders within five miles of my house. It's pretty pathetic.

Easy, buy a gun. It is up to you to protect yourself.

I can't. I couldn't even have it on work property. So where do I put it when I get there? Can't carry it around.

Do you not have a desk? Locker? Some sort of personal space?
And yes you may have it on work property. Not only is it in the US Constitution, it is also in part 1, section 1 of the Kentucky Constitution. And it has been upheld by the Kentucky Supreme Court that the workplace can not forbid you from carrying a firearm on their property. Refer to Mitchell v. University of Kentucky, Ky., No. 10-CI-00489, 4/26/12.
I got bored one day a couple years ago and decided to read the entire KY Constitution, it's quite lengthy. But there was a section, I'm trying to find it now but to no avail as of yet, that explicitly said an employer can also not forbid an employee from carrying a firearm in a work vehicle, or something to that affect.

Actually its because there is no demand for it. The broken does not put a dent. Look how much is being exported out. Especially to China. We are supplying practically the damn world. Obama not not doing anything because he wants the american people to get upset enough to start buying electric cars and hybrids. All you have to do is look at the daily exports and you will see how much oil that is getting refined here and beonf sent out.
