<quoted text>You seem afraid of names. An Uzi is just a semi auto gun. It works no different than a Colt or a Smith&Wesson. You are more concerned about the way a gun looks rather than how it works. You don't use many pistols to hunt deer but the second amendment has nothing to do with hunting. You live in a state that has very strict gun laws yet Chicago had 500 murders last year. I think if you had more citizens with carry permits you would have fewer murders. And lets use the same silly argument the vice president used. If we could save one life by arming more people wouldn't it be worth it. Since 1992 gun ownership has risen by more than a third and the murder rate and crime rate is down 49%. More responsible people being armed lowers crime rates
An Uzi is a military grade weapon. Do you need military grade weapons to go kill deer, coyotes & pheasants? Isn't like they have much to fight back with?( that was truth & sarcasm)

Kindly refrain from being condescending. I am not "afraid" of names. Certain guns are not intended to be in the hands of anyone other than active military in battle and/or a police force.

Take your rifle and leave the war supplies home. You're going hunting, not off to battle.

CCW is just that, being armed in public. I don't see the need and most vets I know feel the same way. In a forward operating area, we were all required to wear our side arm! You knew what it was there for.
Some inner city neighborhoods that I travel through, yes, I am armed!

What I'm afraid of are average American citizens walking around in public carrying a concealed weapon. While you may have the constitutional right to "bear arms" you do not have the constitutional right to walk around in public with it ---- the NRA lobbyists and politicians who are afraid of them gave you that right, NOT the forefathers who drafted the constitution.
to carry is up to each state ... not the Federal government

militia was to come to your neighbors mutual aid ...

now we have the state police per each state... so put your musket down....we have a standing military force to some to the mutual aid ... really doesn't make a diff if your weapon fires one round or a 100 rounds ....gun restrict [state law] differ

Federal covers the buy/sell/trade/transport of firearms

a person in Florida may not carry in New York ... states have no uniform codes , such as say drinking age/ voting age etc etc etc

I have a very small .380 in my back pocket all the time. You never know when you will walk into a robbery. I have carried for over 15 years and never need it. But that doesn't mean I won't need it tomorrow. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it :)

Most states now have carry laws and most of those states honor my carry license. Mine is good in Okla, La, Fl. If we recognize theirs they recognize ours

<quoted text>Also El we are shocked when we see cases where a person in England shoots someone breaking in his home and goes to prison for defending his self
Defending himself against what? Someone nicking a few possessions?
Not worth a life Denny, at least not in my book.
My late mother-in-law's home was broken into years ago, the young
burglar took some food and a few pounds which were lying near the
telephone...you think my mother-in-law should have shot him dead
if she had been home?
He was an opportunist....hungry that's all.

That is exactly how it was. The biggest threat to oneself was
the usual bully and the threat of being sent to the Head's study
if naughty! Life was so simple then.

You must feel naked when you visit England. How would you
cope here if you were to run into a robbery? Just wondering.

Do the rest of the kitchen military vets find it necessary to walk around carrying guns ? Tally? Boomer? Anyone???? I know Tony isn't in to comment but I think he's a vet. Franko???
What are your thoughts?
I put your question to my husband...ex Royal Artillery.
His answer was he could not understand anybody having the
need to own or carry a weapon.

She was very lucky she wasn't harmed. I would shoot anyone breaking in my home. I would assume he was armed and my life was at risk. Our two countries see things very differently. Self defense is a right here. Here criminals all have guns and are much more likely to kill the witness

Drugs and gangs have changed all that here. When I was growing up everyone carried a knife but it wasn't to fight with.

I hope that this will be a great day for you and P and that no matter what you do you will have fun and enjoy yourself..
I am going to be moving furniture.. Not what I really want to do but I have a new livingroom set coming next week.. So I want to get the old set out and gone... I'm keeping My Recliner.. but the couch and the other recliner are gonna be given away.. The couch is going to be the real bear though as it is a hide-a-bed... and that sucker is really heavy.
Sending you and yours all of my best wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---
Good Afternoon Dear Rose....That sounds like awfully hard work..
hope you have some help with that. I would be round to give you a
hand if I were nearer! Recliners are our best friends of an evening after the day's work...wouldn't be without mine....
We are expecting Siberian weather this weekend Rose, have got all the work out of the way now and taking it easy over the weekend...
got a book today delivered on Tagine cooking, so will get my Tagine down from off the top of the kitchen cupboards and see what I can rustle up for Saturday night. Just thinking now of the comparison of Saturday nights gone by, dancing, dates for the following week..now I get excited over the thoughts of a tagine meal! lol
Have a fabulous weekend, enjoy your Spring like weather, don't question it, just enjoy it!

Well I know there is less chance of being shot in England. Our criminals are more apt to kill a witness. They say the first person you kill puts you in the chair so the rest are free. I do carry a small knife with me in England and I am not sure it is legal because it has a locking blade. The blade is only 2 inches but I am not sure about the lock being OK. I show my friends my gun license and they can't believe it because it is so foreign to them
