"It depends on the state laws. Up here in Oregon private businesses are allowed to put those signs up and if you should disobey them and get caught you could be arrested and brought up on "criminal trespassing…"
"When you die you are no longer subject to the physical dimension of time. That is a principal that many have a very difficult time grasping. As a disembodied spirit/soul you are no longer governed by the physics of time.
God is not simply a being…"
"Unfortunately, you are correct. It's a slippery slope when people choose to give up rights in exchange for a promise to be cared for. Our right to protect and defend ourselves does not come from our constitution, or the government; it is God…"
"I can't watch the video but I doubt it will change anyone's mind. Those that think this way always tell themselves that even though it has failed numerous times in the past it will work this time because they know better than those before…"
"My understanding is that a business may choose not to allow firearms on the premises and the sign can essentially be anything that posts the notice that firearms are not allowed, and that they can have the local law enforcement officials…"
"I have a question as to what is the "official" no firearms on premises looks like. I have heard that not all the signs posted up are "valid." For example a bank in my city just has a circular cutout of a revolver, over a…"
My view from this private island I am working at this week.Beautiful place, very primitive. electric only from a generator. No TV, radio etc. We do have satellite internet access though, amazingly enough!
"The deputy is abslutely correct. I've not encountered a locking glove box in a new car for quite a while, and well, most motor vehicles are just a bit more secure than a tuna can (A relative's older Toyota was burglarized by someone…"
"I have been told that in Texas your vehicle is an extension of your home so you can keep a gun in your car no matter where you are. Even if you are on a school campus where guns are prohibited you can keep a gun in your car.

“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses” - Juvenal – 100 A.D.
"Not "other people". "ALL other people". ALL who have EVER lived. Not one single exception. 108,000,000,000 people have lived. ZER0 have not died. Subtract the 7,000,000,000 currently alive if you like. 101,000,000,000 to 0.
"It does, but reality happens every second of every day. Why assume that perfection is not possible? You have that idea in your mind but you do not question it. You have only one life to live, why can't it be in paradise? If not now, then make…"

"Your argument collapses if I never die though right? And since, I have never before been dead, why should I assume that I will? Just because other people have? I am my own individual, all that is, exist because I have perceived it to…"
"Thank you sir. I do strive to be original. Frankly, many of the posts I have read seem rather mundane and petty, some of them. I think it is important to question one's sense of reality, as it can lead to greater insight into what this all…"
