Well, that would solve most of the problem I suppose. Still about 3 outta 5 would still own one tho. That would be discriminating wouldn't it:) If text messages counted , drop that to 1 out of 5.

It was legal for him to obtain his gun and look what happened. Do other countries have the numbers of deaths the US has due to guns....I think not. I think Colt 45 needs to do some more research cause the death rate in England or Australia is no where near what it is in the US. No guns means no deaths by guns, common sense huh!!
By your logic, the 1st Amendment only applies to movable type and quill/parchment. Ergo, radio, television, fax, telegraph, telephone, satellite, and microwave communication are not protected forms of free expression. Will you be disconnecting your computer and phone soon?

LMAO! Yes, I believe that he would not be allowed to own a gun based on his spelling! LOL! Good one, thanks for the laugh! I don't know where the "Lenior" he's speaking of is. We have a LENOIR in this area but no "Lenior"

I was at the range one day when a guy asked me about my Diamondback on my hip. He asked if I had the paperwork to carry it. I said yes I do. He asked to see it and I said "It is stored at the National Archives and Records Administration." "Look under the Second Amendment." "I'm the part that talks about bearing arms." Never heard another word.

Little,

Even with a CWCP, you are not allowed to take it into certain establishments. Also, if the property owner displays a sign prohibitiing firearms you would not be allowed to carry it in there.

One suggestion. Please keep your permit next to your driver's license. In the event of a traffic stop, this allows the officer to clearly see you have the right to carry a weapon. It will greatly reduce the possibility of a serious misunderstanding.

Someone should ask Sheriff Jones where he stands on this, will he stand with other Sheriffs in the country that are refusing to enforce Obama's agenda or will he cave and be a typical politician.

Sheriff Jones recently allowed his deputies to illegally enter a tax paying citizens home and illegally seized his firearms, the lawsuit is pending. It's not the first time and I am sure he would love to see Caldwell County Citizens disarmed. If he cant stand with the people that elected him then we can elect someone that will.
