I wasnít going to get serious with this thread but Iíve changed my mind. I hope all you good folks who camp with young children and bring your firearms store your guns properly.

The day before we departed W. Yellowstone a heartbreaking shooting occurred in Yellowstone NP. A 3 year old girl accidently shot herself with a handgun and died. The family was camping at the Grant Village Campground. This was really a tragic and avoidable accident and should serve as a reminder to keep your firearms out of reach of youngsters.

Hereís a link to the initial story. Yellowstone Shooting Death: 3-Year-Old Girl Allegedly Shot Herself With Handgun

That reminds me of the old saying " better to have and not need then need and not have"

My 9mm goes wherever my truck goes, but stays locked in the truck. I know it's not a perfect solution, but I'm comfortable with it.

I have a HD shotgun and two pistols close at hand when camping or about most anytime really.
A gun is like a fire extinguisher - you use it till the cops arrive.

As a current and long time PA, UT, and FL permit holder (and whose politics are slightly to the right of Atilla the Hun), I understand the issues, pro and con, being discussed.

As a staff member trying to keep the peace on the forum, sometimes my views get in the way of that voluntarily accepted duty. This is one of the topics that generate very strong feelings and I must commend the posters who have for the most part kept this discussion "on point" and not run afoul of the posting rules.

Here are some more recent threads on this topic and the archive has tons more. Many were closed (and some long time members banned) when this hot button topic spun out of control; feathers got ruffled; words get said; and anger replaced judgment.

I was thinking the same thing - we're either in the minority or others don't want to speak up. I've never owned a gun nor have I ever been in a situation where I even remotely felt like I wished I had one.

I have CCP,if I leave the house I'm carring other than where not permitted. South Carolina is the only state around me that doesn't allow it so we don't go there.

I am assuming that most posters on this thread are Americans. I would like to point out that if travelling to Canada, check your gun at the border. It is illegal to carry a concealed weapon in Canada. Many Americans, not knowing our laws, have been arrested and charged with this offense. Now you know. Be safe.

I always carry firearms because cops are too heavy

Just remember, the police are only minutes away when seconds count
