    I found this to be elegantly simple.

    wow... elegant, eloquent and completely logical based in fact.

    i feel this really encapsulates exactly how i feel about it but does so in a completely un-emotional way. sometimes i get wound up and "overly expressive" when i try to persuade an anti-gunner of this rationale.

    kudos!

    now, if only we could get pelosi to understand that...

    GREAT FIND. It does not matter if pelosi understands this premise, we need to get the rest of the American People to understand. JP

    Another good one is "A Nation Of Cowards" by Snyder ? I think.

    Read this before somewhere and loved it. Was this one of Col. Dave Grossmans essays? (The guy who wrote "Psychology Of Killing")

    Good Find!

    No, I've linked to the original writer in the first post.

    Okay then, thanks for publicly making fun of my sight loss, you're a real human being. JK - Thanks Narsil, I honestly didn't notice that...

    The color of hyperlinks being so close to that of regular bolded text is one of the few things I dislike about the new forum appearance; everything else is shiny! It is a bit difficult to notice the hyperlinks.

    i am always on guard for "ego" centric gun owners, especially CCW types. They are easy to spot and usually dangerous to hang around with (which i dont). They think they are somehow cool or powerful cause they carry. Usually untrained or undertrained, they handle guns carelessly. I saw it a couple of weekends ago at the training class i attended. The worst part is he owned a gun store, couldnt keep his gun in his holster, miserable gun handling skills and dangerous to us. The opposite of the person described by the retired military gentleman this quote is attributed to.
