    Only when there's a credible threat against which to defend. If merely seeing a gun makes you feel so threatened, even in the absence of any clear intent to misuse it, then I'll just have to chalk you up as yet another datum, among so many that have already been observed, in support of a particular quote that is popularly but incorrectly attributed to Freud.

There's a point where your responsibility to act like a decent person to everyone else and your right to carry firearms openly collides, and that place is called out in public. Seriously. I am behind AR-15s for home defense, but there's just no intelligent reason why you should carry one around in the streets. You never know when you might run into someone who is expecting to get attacked. Say, someone in a gang, or someone in the Witness Protection Program.

    I don't oppose the law; I'm just saying, just because you can doesn't mean you should.
    So you're in favor, then, of the principle of a Heckler's Veto.

    Kinda' tired of loose and sloppy terminology.... All tissue is not Kleenex; all rifles are not "assault" weapons.

    Say what you mean .. mean what you say.
    If hoplophobes were forced to obey that last couplet, then they would never be able to say anything comprehensible.

    Because when someone breaks into your house, you want to get your weapon out as quickly as possible.

    This thread is about carrying outside your home or property, ie into stores.

    Oh yeah. I guess I focused too much on the case part.
