I do not advocate DENYING people's right to carry a firearm and protect themselves. I simply point out that it's not the best choice for everyone, nor even most people.
Being in New Hampshire, I imagine its quite common to see people openly carrying firearms in public.

Being from New York, it was quite uncommon to see the average citizen openly carrying firearms in public.

Soon after moving here to southern Arizona from New York 2 years ago, I noticed on the street these metal boxes on stands. They look similar to the mailboxes you see on my street, and other streets nearby. But the were much smaller than the mailboxes. And each door had a key in them. One day, out of curiosity, I turned one of the keys, opened the door ad looked inside. Of course it was empty. I was mystified as to what they were for, because there was no sign or anything else indicating their purpose.

One day, I had to go down to the office of the local water company, and they had the same type of boxes outside their building. I asked one of the women inside what the heck those boxes outside were for. She looked at me surprised, as if knowing what they were for was as common as knowing that the sky is blue. She said to me: "That's where you put your gun of course, before coming into our building." I never saw that type of box before on the street.

Sounds like a most enlightening organization. It's kind of hard to figure out how people from such a fine organization could possibly have anything to do with trickery and theft, isn't it?
Yeah, I am simply amazed that there is such enlightened understanding. Oh, and yeah, that is sarcasm.

Unless they're hunting, on-duty for law enforcement, or members of the legislature, it's exceptionally uncommon.

I've bought and sold cars on craigslist with never a problem, but I do believe it is a fairly dangerous media to advertise on, whether you are buying or selling. I've also bought and sold cars on ebay, which I think is much safer.
If you are going to use craigslist for anything at all, DON'T meet someone just by yourself. Bring someone along with you. And exercise your Second Amendment RIGHT to be armed for protection.
I can see that Comrade Sheepie is using the judgits.

Sounds like good advice to me. I would think you would want to meet in a restaurant or a bar that has a camera so everyone who enters is recorded.

And if YOU are going to meet someone, avail yourself to your Second Amendment RIGHT to be armed. And being "armed" is NOT limited to firearms.
You may be talking about knives and baseball bats, so do Martial Arts count?

That's an excellent idea. I've heard to many bad stores about craigslist transactions over the years. I'm very wary of it.

(I did however purchase a good car on craigslist this past August, and I'm happy with the car and the price. It was a repo).
