    The NRA's LaPierre says that the ONLY defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. If they all wore black or white hats like in western movies it would be easy but if everyone was open carrying how could you tell intent, especially with long guns that aren't holstered?
    If you are ready to shoot anyone carrying in a suspicious way how would anyone else know your intent? Why wouldn't you be shot for being in a threatening Position?
    I'm just asking to find out what you guys are thinking.
    As I posted, you wouldn't understand...

    How about this gal her finger is off the trigger but she looks ready to shoot. What about this dude he seems to be chambering a round. Would you "drop" him?

    This guy looks to me like a threat but is he?
    What would you do if you saw him like this at the supermarket?
    Would you shoot him?

    Come on I want to know.
    Is he an innocent 2nd amendment exerciser or potential mass murderer?
    What is the criteria for judgement if everyone is carrying?
    What would it take to "drop him"?

    Anyone not in a police or military uniform is defiantly a threat. No reason to have an AR just walking around the air port. Even if its just slung you better have a damn good reason for it.

    Why?
    Don't they have 2nd amendment rights to carry? Anywhere?
    Isn't that reason enough?
    How about the supermarket? Or a bus station?
    Or a rally in Washington. Why is the airport different?

    Maybe he is just a guy ready to identify a mass murderer and shoot like you.
    Couldn't he be innocently being diligent ? Just like you?

    His finger isn't on the trigger...You would really drop him "in an instant"?

    Probably a sportsman.
    do you consider running someone over with a Porsche an example of "exercising your right to travel"?
    shooting someone illegally with a gun has nothing to do with one's second amendment rights anymore than what I described.

    how many "sportsman" kill people as opposed to the group that voted for Obama at a rate of 96%?

    if you are going to slur a group over gun misuse, targeting sportsmen rather inner city blacks is rather silly given that black males-almost always under the age of 40 and almost always in Democrat party run cities, cause a bit more than half the murders in the USA

    "sportsmen" people with hunting licenses or gun club memberships-I bet less then one tenth that amount

    Anyway, hope all are safe.
    Since I haven't heard this for awhile "lighten up Francis[es]" My apologies I did not notice the RIP tag in the thread title, therefore forbidding humorous sarcasm. Oh there wasn't one.

    I can go with or without TSA. I have very little feelings either way. So your opinion is also rejected and adjust your twisted panties.

    I'll let the personal attacks slide this time.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Shots Fired At LAX; Injuries Confirmed..... [W:44:90]There is already an in-thread warning in place. Return to the topic, which is not each other, or personal comments made by other posters. If you see a violation, report it, don't accuse each other of violations nor discuss that you reported it.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.
