aim & shoot

"I only wish I had a gun rather than a camera."

Carry your gun - it's a lighter burden than regret.

The victims lament.

Carry your gun. And be ready, willing and able to use it if it becomes necessary. For some reason those armed officers were not - and while I wasn't there, and we probably don't have the whole story - I'd say most of the gun blogosphere would have hesitated very little to not at all, to defend themselves and others, if the opportunity presented itself.

Why I always carry, and hate when laws prohibit me from doing so.

On a less serious note...

It appears the hotel was attacked by....Romulans????

Rights once given up are hard to get back. Indian citizens willingly gave up their right to keep and bear arms, and pay the price.

Just damn disappointing from a number of angles. Too bad there wasn't some photos of the police hiding, now that would be reassuring.

Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.

Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;

Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.

With their long history under the British Empire, Indians never had the opportunity to "Keep and Bear Arms." That was continually and fully suppressed.

'Course, considering who some of them were---Thuggees and such, it might have been a good thing AT THE TIME. Not now.

They don't have that option... OR the right.

They have the right- they just felt that it was not worth defending.

Breda,
That's very well put.

I like that. Might have to put that on a shirt or something. (Eh, maybe not. Why announce?)

Well if you live in more free America (i.e. open carry), it could be a neat little statement.

I borrowed Kim du Toit's words when my dad asked me why I was carrying a gun. A gun is a tool that you will almost never truely need, but when you do, nothing else will do.

Breda, I think you have coined a phrase so profound, it will become part of the RKBA lexicon.
