Discussions are one thing, making a statement is another.Picking up on some other wise comments in this thread (+1911 for everyone's input here, but especially saxman's just above and nikeret just below), I also do not seek out such discussions with total strangers. Avoidance seems preferable, at least for me.
What a shame to a nice truck!
With a smile and a salute to one of the best Forum members....if I had the good fortune to live in the beautiful area you live in, and with a similar self-sufficient property, I'd do the same thing. I remember -- again with a smile and good envy -- the entrance gate to your property and its obvious privacy from a long-ago post.Discussions are one thing, making a statement is another.
As I read the post on this thread I thought that it was pretty obvious many here had never lived behind enemy lines. I lived in California for 65 years and it was actually covered in CCW class to keep a low profile remove any and all NRA stickers and anything that might identify you as a gun owner. People being reported as brandishing and when stopped by police and brought out of their car at gun point only to find out after a search that the occupants did not have a gun but there were NRA bumper stickers on the car. Red Flag laws being expanded to neighbors and people you work with. Now I live in Oklahoma and feel more confident about voicing my opinion but still prefer to adhere to the Gray Man theory. Being a senior citizen it is much easier to blend in.I guess it depends on where you live.
^^^ Irving, Texas police notice/poster. As a mostly N. TX resident, that notice/poster is 100% on target for most of the N.Texas urban environs.
Ironic is the California license plate. But it is also so true, as the leftists have migrated from the disaster they've created in California, so as to wreak the same disaster in Texas.
