    What does "well regulated" mean to you?

    Brilliant idea. Why doesn't he work hard, go to school at night and make a life for himself he will be proud of?

    Do you have time to guess if they are going to use their firearms on you? Flip a coin type thing? Pulling a gun out for a robbery is a deadly threat that CAN legally be matched with lethal force.

    That wasn't what I asked. I asked if you believe people that commit robbery should be put to death as punishment for their crime - which is what your first comment implies. Or maybe you did understand my question and you think that someone deserves to die when you feel as though your life is in danger? How omnipotent of you. Also, you have no idea what this man will be doing in a few years, but, gosh, it's a little arrogant to presume to know.

    If this guy has a concealed carry and was disarmed because he went through the fair, I hope he sues and gets a nice FAT settlement.

    "If you think it turns someone in to one than you should not apply for said permit. As for the rest of us we walk among you every day and cause you no harm."

    This sounds almost exactly like the argument in favor of same-sex marriage: If you disagree with same sex marriage, then don't marry someone of the same sex.

    However, for some reason, that argument - which makes perfect sense to conservatives when talking about guns - doesn't quite seem to resonate when talking about same-sex marriage.

    Consistency doesn't seem to be a conservative value.

    What does "shall not be infringed" mean to you?

    Lucybear, yes ma'am if felt my life was endangered, I wouldn't hesitate to use my weapon. That is what I was taught in the military. He'll be out on the street in a few years doing the same, and I pray to God when he does, no one will be killed.

    Police Chief Joel Keith’s promise of uniformed police escorts on demand also seems to be hit and miss (mostly miss). Some fairgoers in need of an escort to or from their vehicle have been flat refused. It seems that some officers are either unaware of Keith’s promise, or just unwilling to assist vulnerable fairgoers. As was feared, Troxler’s promise that safety at the fair will be a priority was just talk—talk he used to disarm North Carolina families.

    ...Just where are you getting your facts from?? I have yet to see anything from either the GOP nor the NRA about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. As a matter of FACT these two organizations strive to get our government to enforce the laws that already exist to more severely punish the criminals who have and/or use guns to commit crimes. As for your vigilante wannabe comment I challenge you to show where in NC an innocent bystander has ever been shot by a CCP carrier.. You won't be able to because just like the anti gun fear monger you are, its just another smoke screen to try and convince the ignorant masses that guns are dangerous. Guns are only dangerous in the hands of criminals and people like you. Also I have to seriously question whether you even leave your house at night or do you stay home after sundown because the "monsters" might get you....
