Re: “Republicans are silent after voting to allow firearms at the State Fair

I find it absolutely hilarious that the legislators crafting more bills to allow guns pretty much anywhere in NC (I won't, though, get into the absurdity of allowing someone to get drunk with a gun on his hip in front of a bunch of people, and then someone says something about his girlfriend, now we've got a couple dead people.....) themselves DO NOT allow them anywhere near where they work. What I want to know is, is the fear for your life everytime you go out for coffee a reality that you have to have the gun? Both sets of my grandparents lived to their 80s, and never experienced getting shot at (as civilians anyway) and never had a home break-in. Neither of my parents have ever been held up at gun point, and they're going on 65. I'm 35, spend most weekends downtown Raleigh and when I lived in Richmond (at one point, highest rate of murder per capita) also spent most weekend nights downtown, and I've never even seen a gun in person except for in Wal-Mart. Furthermore, none of my friends have ever had any problems along those lines. So where is this concern coming from, because it sure seems absent from most people's lives. I also pose this question: has anyone of you who owns a gun, except for military/police individuals, ever shot anyone? Because I guarantee that the criminal you might (but most likely never) encounter will have shot somebody before and won't think twice for a split-second about shooting you if it comes to a "shoot out", but you might. Shooting pieces of paper is one thing. Shooting clay frisbees is one thing. Heck, even shooting an animal is one thing. But when you've got a choice to eliminate someone's life? I can bet you will think twice. That's a completely different thing. And a special note to Jay, that's some real concern you show for your fellow citizen, your fellow Raleigh-ite. You wouldn't help someone who was in need? That's the problem with our society; it's not "liberalism" as a lot of you like to cop to, but this selfish, "I got mine, your're on your own" attitude.
