    What with the Arizona shooting and the anti's newly found obsession with new gun control laws, how many of you would turn in your handguns and quit carrying if a law were passed prohibiting our self defense???? Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I remember what it was like before we were able to carry and defend ourselves. Great strides have been made by GCO and others. I would hate for any of it to be taken away. While I don't advocate breaking any laws (especially since folks from those 3 letter agencies could be watching), I just don't think I could go back to being defenseless again.

    Charleton Heston's famous 2nd Amendment quote comes to mind.

    I once lived in a place where it took years for a mere private citizen to get a handgun permit.

    So for that year, I used a rifle. A little carbine with a barrel I hacksawed down to 16" myself.
    Openly carried at times. Not quite as openly or frequently as KwikRnu does, but I did what I had to do to keep a working defensive weapon on my person or within reach as much of the time as possible.

    You forgot to paint the tip orange, or carry it in your hand - or rather taped to your hand.

    Your response reminded me that this forum is/may be monitored by others, so I don't feel a person should openly say what they would do....I do appreciate your insight...I think sometimes you are so wise that you don't even realize it....:)....thanks

    You might think you deleted it, but it's still very retrievable. Think about giving us a title back, and just maybe a question. The discussion is worthwhile.

    How many would get a barcode tattooed on the back of your neck if the government mandated that?

    Call me optimistic but I really don't see the govt going door to door collecting firearms.

    I'm surprised nobody else has used this one yet:

    All my guns were lost in an unfortunate boating accident.
