155. Wow!
Boy did you ever tell me. You are correct, however, that I don't know enough about the NRA to argue with someone who is an expert on the subject. I withdraw my criticisms, and will endeavor to learn more.

Thanks for the education, and I apologize if you got the impression that I wanted to restrict your rights by asserting mine. That was not my intent at all.

As I've said many times, I am smart enough to steer clear of people carrying loaded weapons (if I know about it), just as I don't go to an ATM in the "bad" part of town at 2:00am.

The only thing I have just a small problem with, however, is the premise that I should automatically "trust" someone carrying a loaded weapon, because it is their "right." Should I also believe everything I hear, because Free Speech is a right?
