 Hopefully this will pass in SC also.

 As a former LEO ( Ms. Tubercle also and with 2 daughters and 2 sons-in-law who are current LEO) this may sound strange but this is the only way citizens can protect themselves. LEOs can't sit in your yard to do it for you. Most LEOs that I know, and that is a bunch, are for this contrary to what the media reports. The Media reports what the chief officers say because that is what the councils tell them to say and the street officer can't voice their opinion in public without reprisal. That's why Tubercle is "former". Got tired of the political $h!t.

 Everyone you encounter is approached and considered armed anyway but nothing is to fear from the citizen that voluntarily obeys the law.

 This is highly debatable, I know, and borders on politics so deletion/locking may happen.

This is true, but I know it's important to a lot of people so I hope we don't have to do that.  I haven't discussed this with the other mods, but IMO as long as it stays respectful and non political it can stay.  Now, I'll bow out before I have to ban myself for the comments I'm thinking.....;)

 Thanks Denny...I'm pretty sure I know where you stand personally  ;) but this is something that is going to have to be dealt with from the general masses in the coming future due to recent events.

 I hope if this thread is allowed to continue if it can be in a genteel manner and a wholesome and intelligent debate can be had to the benefit of all. Even though very few of have ever met in person we have all become friends within our own "community" here.

 The Tubercle has had his say-so and will bow out and become a spectator.

Doesn't sound strange in the least, Tubercle. Sounds like good ole common sense. It's not law abiding gun owners and carriers that are the problem. To disarm this group is to put them at the mercy of those to whom the law means nothing.
Why do I carry a gun? Because a cop is too heavy.  ;)

Here I go again walking on thin ice. Sheesh I was just stating the facts, and
relaying new current events.  I don't mind if it gets locked and that, for the record,
it was not my intent to be flambouyant nor solicit politically charged debate.

Yeah maxiboy + tubercle that is funny.... ;D

I would say this can be a surprisingly apolitical issue, at least when you are down to individuals, not party platforms. I know plenty of responsible armed folks of many divers stripes of political persuasion.

In the words of Gandalf, keep it secret, keep it safe. Ok, quoting Tolkien in this context takes my nerdery up a notch.

I pack everywhere I go. But can only fire 1 shot and takes 24 hours to reload.

 ;D

There's no denying that where there is right to carry, violent crime goes down. Criminals relish an unarmed populace, makes for easy pickins. Law abiding citizens are the ones who suffer when unable to defend themselves and their families, and that, is the definition of wrong in my book.

AZ just did this, I don't agree with it. I went thru the class and got my CCP. I think everyone should... there are plenty of people who are going to carry and no have a clue how to handle a weapon... very dangerous! Everyone should have to take a course.

I've heard of little blue pills that can help you with that.

Gotta agree with that.  You need to take a gun safety course to get a hunting license (at least in PA) when you're 12.  You should have to take one to carry around a handgun.
