Good letters all.


preston henry,it sounds like you wanted to start something with this young man,he has a right to open carry and you stuck your nose into his personal business,regardless of where he parked,which has nothing to do with open carry,he is protecting himself.criminals don't open carry!you sound like the bully you admit you offended him but you also stepped into his personal zone and clearly did not mind your own business.you are the arrogant one!


Preston Henry - Some people are just afraid all the time.


Just like being attracted by bright shiny objects, Some are drawn to the sight of law abiding citizens exercising their 2nd amendment rights.

Guess it's too hard to id the real criminals since they are always concealing the illegally possessed firearms that the public Should be concerned about. The fact that you approached the open carrier seems to show that you actually feel he was no perceived threat

You made your point, now go point out a real crook. Probably plenty in any of the "gun free zones' that attract them

Horse with no name

Dear Beverly, Whatever gets you through the night is fine. Many people don't believe as you because they aren't superstitious. You have no special rights to our government. The government is for all the people. No one is telling you that you can't pray. You just don't get to foist it on the rest of us.


Beverly says, "Prayer and real religion are a necessary part of life if we are to remain a free people."

I would like to be free too. Free from your religious tyranny. Pray...but, keep your religion out of tax payer funded government meetings.
