Subject: RE: BS: Guns on planes
I should, in fairness, point out that I too am licensed to a concealed weapon. I don't, but I could if I felt the need to. Of course, the argument can be made that if I need a weapon I shouldn't be wherever I am.

Why? Because I target shoot, on a range, and have firearms at home (no kids!). Renewing the permit to carry concealed forces me to periodically review safety procedures and make sure mine are current.

It is interesting, though, that the statement "A armed society is a polite society" seems to be true. Outside, that is, of Unnatural Environments.
