Re: [RC] Guns at ridecamp - Mike Lewis

Yeah, I was very happy when we left California upon my graduation from grad school.
In the Monterey-Salinas area, I was forbidden to obtain a concealed carry permit because I, 1) didn't close a business after 1:00 AM and, 2) couldn't prove I was being stalked.
No joke.  I'm an active duty military officer who has been entrusted with responsible handling of several weapons (and has proved competence with each of them), yet the Monterey County Sheriff wouldn't let me pack a 9 mm pistol for personal protection in an area with significant, proven, gang activity.
Gotta love it...  Let's protect the criminals and jeopardize the innocent.  As a very competent shooter, I could have taken care of any threat LONG before the police would have arrived to "protect" me or my family.

Don't get me started.  I live in California, where the laws are written so that - unless you have a CCW permit - you cannot have a gun in your car that is at all accessible in an emergency.  And of course, in my neck of the woods, it is very difficult to get a CCW permit.  Nice catch-22.

You know, the gun may not be FOR ridecamp.  We do have to get there and to get back home.  Now days, it's not safe for anyone to be on the roads alone...male or female.

This just struck me as such a funny comment!! The way
its written, it makes it sound like people actually
specifically bring guns to ridecamp. Is this so? If
so, why? To shoot the loose dogs? To shoot the loud
generator? To shoot the person banging buckets at 3
am? Or???


Life's a journey, so enjoy the ride (and try not to fall off)
