"Does that include the police? If not, this may simply be a case of hoplophobia. Easily treatable by hanging around with responsible gun owners and ignoring media presentations of gun owners as Neanderthals."

Hello there! I noticed on one of your previous thread posts that you carry a gun with you either concealed or unconcealed. I thought you might be interested in joining my new group called the Concealed Carry Club. Here is a link to the club:
