How many of you guys have a class A large capcity license to carry a hand gun? and why. Im considering getting mine but ... im not sure, just lookin for some other opinions.
Yes but using that logic there are people that shouldn't have cell phones, cars, children, or too much food at their disposal. :rofl:here in WI you can't carry them. I have mixed feelings about it. i know some friends that are from MI with the license and still carried in WI even when they were drunk. and i think right there is one of the reason i dont like it. people tend to drink a lot in WI and i think there are a lot of people that are to stupid to carry it.
i have been on long trips before, like route 66, and some of those trips i really kind of wish i brought one of my guns. but i just carry a knife, which i know isnt anything compared to a gun. so, idk how i feel about it, more so because i know i could trust myself with one, but i know there are a lot of dumbsh*ts out there that shouldnt have it even if they pass the test.

I agree, we did put ourselves in this position. 50 years of failed liberal policies. No border control. Abortion so people can flake out on their responsibilities. Men fathering children with no intentions of raising them. Actions without consequences over and over again. Yeah, we did put ourselves in this position, but right now having a gun is a better answer than trying to undo several decades worth of crap. Or should I just sacrifice my self and my family so you can feel better that I don't have a gun? op:And? There is people that shouldn't drive. Lots of them. Sometimes the system weeds them out, some get away with murder. Children? Lots shouldn't be parents, plain and simple. I don't feel that people should have a 'right' to reproduce. Lots of children are born into broken families, or to poverty, or to be stricken with genetically (or other) based diesease, when I feel it would be better that it just hadn't happened as the ratio of them that move on to be successful to the ones that wind up in jail or worse is unacceptably low. Sure, we could have social programs to attempt to help these people, but that can only go so far as it is not a winning battle (who wants to adpot a baby with fetal alcohol syndrom?) 'Back Home' there was a recent case of a pair of conjoined twins being born - they are joined at the head and can't be seperated. They knew this in relatively early stages of pregnancy. Awesome. Abortions are free here, why didn't they? Do you have a right to bring children into this world to promise them a life of suffering?
I don't like people carrying concealed weapons. "Ya'll" do it and can come up with tons of stories of how it saved your butt. Great, I don't care. You put yourself in that place. Clean up your streets, make firearms difficult to acquire, crack down on illegal gun trading, and suddenly very few people are carrying and thus shooting each other. I don't believe that MAD is the solution to such a problem.
Anyways, I'm about to be locked in a pen, so whatever.
Well I like the opportunity to learn something in a conversation, and also to teach someone.Mudd he is a Canadian. Had too many seasons of brain freeze. He is just a lemming following the crowd. He has no clue.
Wow, very well put and some extremely legitimate arguments there. Personally, I don't view carrying a gun as doing so because everyone else does, but rather for my own protection. However, I don't have a desire to carry, just to purchase one for my own home. I do carry a small knife for my own protection. Being a young woman who is often walking through parking lots, campus, etc. alone due to my job and my schooling, I have had some close calls, and feel much better knowing that I can protect myself if needed. So I can understand the desire to carry a weapon, but I am not sure that I ever would.Preception is everything. I am considered to be very much right wing by a lot of Canadians, not that I really am. I am fiscally conservative, but do believe that government must make an effort to regulate commerence as some guidance is needed for the 'bigger picture' to work. Socially I sit in what I consider to be much more of a middle ground, I don't believe that we can be a utopian society of handouts, but there is something to be gained with keeping the common good in mind. After all, sometimes genuinely nice people get into situations beyond their control or ability to foresee.
To you, all you see is 'left wing pinko'. Sadly, I think Americans in general have a limited concept of what 'communism' is, or of socialism. Mudd is on the right track, I have heard the stories from people who think more like me, or perhaps differently. Generally a lot more Americans seem to lean right (even your lefty president is far more in the middle ground than any of you would ever want to believe), and it will skew your preception.
I don't feel that guns are blanketed as 'bad'. I've spent some time with a rifle, and had way too much fun with a shotgun on one or two occasions. I don't own any, but I've considered buying something to carry with me when I go into the woods, not that I've ever had a problem with animals (basic common sense generally stops you from getting mauled).
But why the need to carry a concealed weapon around town? Because everyone else does? Hmm. I don't think you can blame liberal policies for the sheer amount of weapons that are easily available in the US. After all, most of them are legitimatly purchased, even the ones in criminals hands? Here it is hard to buy a handgun on the street - the supply is limited by a lack of legal weapons to have stolen and resold. Most of the illegal ones wind up being imported from the US, some of them legally (movie 'props' being resold has recently become a huge problem).
But, it's your 5th ammendment right, so I can't argue with that.
