Recent quote from a Chattanooga Police Officer, in person. "Not enough of the right people are armed".. that being said, I might be the "right person", and while I am often armed and have been in some armed interactions, it ain't that easy. Especially if you understand both the law and effective "safe" usage.

That being said, a recent well armed nutcase at an amusement park may have run into such a GGWG, as reports are varied and it's hard (not impossible) to double-tap yourself. Currently a suicide. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/u...lorado-amusement-park-rcna122895

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
