Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

What don't they understand about the term "concealed-weapons PERMIT"?

Found this at Papa Mike's blog. We either have a right to carry or we don't. Period. That should include hospitals, schools, municipal buildings, etc. The only exception would be in areas such as divorce courts. Just my opinion.

AP - A Pennsylvania woman Monday sued a county sheriff who revoked her concealed-weapons permit after she upset fellow parents by wearing her holstered pistol to her 5-year-old daughter’s soccer game.

Meleanie Hain alleges in a suit filed in a Harrisburg federal court that Lebanon County Sheriff Michael DeLeo violated her Second Amendment rights and prosecuted her maliciously when he took away her permit in September.

Hain, 30, successfully appealed the revocation last month, although the judge who restored her permit questioned her judgment and said she “scared the devil” out of others who attended the Sept. 11 soccer game.

Hain said Monday her home-based baby-sitting service has suffered, her children have been harassed, and she has been ostracized by her neighbors because of DeLeo’s actions. In one instance, she said, a neighbor who saw Hain in a local store had the manager ask her to leave because she was carrying her handgun.

“I fought for my right, and now I’m still being punished,” she said.

Your gun scared me… that’s all it takes these days to disarm a citizen?

The sight of a holstered weapon would cool the jets of any hotheaded parent who might want to show how much of an ass they can be over how they imagine their kid has been treated. Not that we have any incidents of children exhibiting more maturity than their parents at an athletic event. Nope. Not at all.

I figured I was done for when sititng in hospital orientation the HR person told how awful it was that a man had worn his holstered pistol to Six Flags for a hospital sponsored family day. He got fired for it, seems that if you're there for a hospital sponsored event it's the same as wearing your gun into the hospital. Bunch of damn sissies run my hospital I think.

Subvet and I have talked this over before (many times) putting a "no handgun zone" sign on the door of a building is equal to painting a great big bull'seye on it!

I would argue that if the weapon was properly CONCEALED no one would have known she was wearing it...and therefore the "it scared me" tactic couldn't be used.
