Spent the day at the NRA Convention here in St. Louis yesterday and yes the 2nd Amendment supporters are alive and well and the place was packed at the same time the Cardinals were having their opening ceremonies. 15 years in law enforcement and I never had to arrest a "law abiding" citizen. I responded to several calls had the victim had a means of self defense, the outcome would have been very different. When we finally hear all the details on the Zimmerman case then we can make a determination as to what really happened. I carried for 15 years with a badge and now carry with a permit. I have to agree with a previous post. When seconds counts, the police are just minutes away. This I know from experience. Good common sense and good training are the requirement. Safe travels all.

Wow! As a Canadian citizen now residing in the US, I take exception to your vapid and somewhat arrogant and insulting tone, my friend! Please note that a Manitoba city, Thompson, can claim to be the most violent crime riddled city in Canada. Perhaps you might want to start by cleaning up your own back yard!

Canada's most violent crime city: Thompson, Manitoba | Thompson | Thompson Citizen, Thompson, MB

My old Province, British Columbia, has a per capita violent crime rate that is more than double the rate here in Missouri, a fact that surprises most of those Canadians who prefer stereotypes over facts!

My county here has had 1 (ONE) murder in the last 19 years, and believe me, we are ALL armed to the teeth!

I possess and carry weapons (with a Utah CCW permit) because it is my responsibility to keep my community, my home and my family safe, and to ensure that crime doesn't pay! After all, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away (if you're lucky)!

Signed by the 'liberal anti gun democatic president obama' (as the NRA calls him).
Romney however, has passed and supported lots of anti-gun legislation over the years.
Vote carefully.

Well said, Hawthorne!

IMHO there is no place for that kind of arrogance and insulting behavior on this forum! CROCUS you can OCCUPY another forum if you feel compelled to insult your neighbors to the south!

Boy, the nuts are falling heavy from the tree now!
People are getting a little too worked up over this, and some things are being said that I am sure they would like to take back.
Everyone needs to take a pill and relax a bit.

Speaking of chilling...this thread made me so upset, I sold all 5 of my guns. That's right, all of them .68Cal; one full auto, one s/a, and three pumps. Plus I was tired of filling the co2 tanks all the time, and paintballs are getting expensive....lol not for or against ccp or guns in general, but "Can't we all just get along!"
