  1. I was looking through a online tool catalog and found several different badges . One was for conseal carry . It was very realistic . Is this a good idea or would it just get you in more trouble ? One comment said it could keep you from getting shot by the law in case of a gun battle . But if I can buy one for $ 15.00 bucks so can the criminal . Any thoughts ?

    1. Personally, I would stay away from anything that looked like a badge if I was not a law enforcement agent/officer. Displaying it in any way could land you in trouble for impersonating an officer. You can check you local laws, maybe even ask a local officer or two, but I would suspect little good to come from it. Just my two cents. ~ Dave Dolbee

  2. I support Constitutional Carry. If you can legally own a handgun, then you should be able to carry it. My wife recently purchased a new Glock 42 and then applied for her carry license. The questions she had to answer to buy the gun were very similar to the ones on the license application. If you pass the NICs background check, then in most cases you will pass the LTC application. The criminals do not care and will carry anyway.

  3. I find it SAD that so many that claim to serve the LAW are so willing to limit the 2 nd Amendment
    Can they not read or are they just another part of the TYRANNY ?

    1. Hurrah! Glad to see I’m not the only one complaining about this. I’ve done so to my sheriff and local politicians and remind them again every time we get together.
