It's not a democracy, it's a representative republic, specifically set up that way to protect those in the minority from being victimized by popularity contests (i.e. democracy).

it is a republic... that uses democracy at the micro level. When enough people, in enough places, decide to change it ...it changes.

do you ever fill your bathtub with your guns, strip down, and submerge yourself in them?


No. I save that for people who ask me stupid questions.

It might be wise to confine one's shid talking to the internet. :idea: One unfortunate soul on this forum did it face to face, and it appears not to have ended well. I hope he makes a full recovery.

Assaulting someone for shit talking is bullshit. I don't care how bad the shit talk either; the response in inordinate to the offense. I've said it before, this is probably the prime reason to limit concealed carry. A few beers and a loudmouth and pretty soon someone is dead, instead of in the hospital.

Other's may look at it in a different light. What happened could easily have left one of our friends dead and concealed carry may have prevented it from going as far as it did.

Yeah, I'm not buying it. Every situation is more dangerous with a gun. I don't want to have to carry a gun just so I'm not outmatched, and I don't want some yahoo trying to play cop or hero either.

I don't actually know it. Is this to do with Lindsel maybe? I heard he got into a fight.

Yes. It was described in another thread on this forum (TPC Amana 2013). Very sad if his injuries are as severe as described.

I agree with Irban, adding a gun to any anxious situation justs makes it worse. While getting your a­ss beat sucks, as does the residue of concussions, I think I would rather live with the concussions (and I do) than killing someone because I didn't want to take a beating.

It didn't take a gun to end the above mentioned beating....it took a girlfriend! The guy was with other friends, I would be questioning why it was his girlfriend to pull said guy off and not one of them?
