I really get nervous when we go into Conn and Mass. Fortunately they're little states.
I'm damned, though, if I'm going to go on a 2200 mile or more trip unarmed. The worst of the trip, from a Rights standpoint, is lower New England, and we can get through those dwarf states in a few hours.
I thought you guys were all about states' rights? What happened?
It shouldn't be, though. There are plenty of gun owners on the left.
Coleman Young, mayor of Detroit from the 70s until the early 90s, was a lot of things, but a liberal, through and through. He always opposed having stricter gun control laws in the city than in the rest of the state, despite Detroit's crime rate, and maybe even because of it. He packed heat, and he knew a lot of his citizens did so, also.
OTOH, you guys are supposed to be about individual rights. Doesn't self-defense count as a right?
It does in my book, and I'm a liberal. I'm not a gun owner, myself, but I will defend any other law-abiding citizen's right to bear arms. Besides, I live in a large, urban area, and I work in a job that pisses people off. If I ever see one of my adult clients on my porch, well, I'll probably buy a gun at that point. If that day comes, it's good to know that I can go to the gun store and get one.
