"Newly elected Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) has introduced a bill to simply prohibit any institution from being able to call them a "gun free zone." This, he argues, isn't only because the current law is an infringement of the Second Amendment of the Constitution, but because it is dangerous. Again, places where criminals know that there will not be guns are places they want to go to in order to commit crimes. It is common sense."

I guess I was thinking of this.

It's shocking to see the lack of understanding of the 2A by these people. Makes you wonder how they got over the bar in the first place.

I like Chris Matthews' comments about mentally challenged people like him.

Folks with ccp are used to carrying. Clipping on their carry is just another thing they do when getting dressed. No more so than a person putting tictacs or lip balm in their pocket, or in my teaching days , my putting my slide rule or calculator in my pocket

Chris Matthews is a good commentator and takes no s--t from no one. I have been watching Hardball for over 5 years and his comments are right on.They do belong in their caves.

So? confused Is anyone saying that have to go out half-dressed? If carrying with a 30-round extended clip sticking out of the butt of their Glock is routine, there's a real problem here, don't you think?

That is a very scary statement.
To walk out your door everyday armed to the teeth to protect yourself kill is demented.

And please correct me if I'm wrong, but don't most of these people say it is to protect themselves from the government?

That might/could be considered over generalization.

Consider another statement:

And please correct me if I'm wrong, but don't most some of these people say it is to protect themselves from the government?

I would probably be inclined to make the second statement,

But -- I am not a mind reader. Absent a highly respected poll result, I'm inclined to think I would be guessing.

I'd add that anyone who says that he's armed to attack the government is, in the words of Article 3, section 3 of the Constitution, a traitor.

My point is, that many folks who carry , doing so is as comfortable as that, and as safe, since the weapon would be secured

And, no one would carry with a 30 round magazine. In fact compact is prefered. Most would carry with the standard size(15-17) mag. Not because having an extended mag is more dangerous because f the number of rounds but because of the physical size would tend to be unwieldy .

When I taugh school, I regularly carried a folding knife in my pocket. Not for protection, as I was in school, and schools are actually quite safe , but because I found use for it most every day. I mention this to add that it was just as standard for me to grab it as it was to grab my wallet. One went in one pocket, the other in the other with my Kees and change.

A knife /= a gun.

A knife has many daily uses, as you point out, 99% of which don't involve killing or wounding something. I doubt ordinary citizens would find a daily use for a gun, which has but a single purpose ...

Yep thats pretty much it.

Hunting ? well for a definition - better to use traps and a knife . Today use is a long range guns with a high power scope or a machine gun -< now thats not hunting it is a sport.

IMO.

Is completely paranoid who thinks this way.
