    My employer JUST put up the "no concealed weapons" sign on our outer doors.

    So my question is, if it's concealed, how are you going to know?



    What a world.

    Do you not realize, O soul, that your every breath, every heartbeat, every thought, word, deed and motive are lived every second of every day before the very Face of God?

    Concealment is your job.

    I avoid post offices though.

    I have friends who work for the post office.

    If the post office doesn't have those big "detector-looking-thingys" like you see in the doors at the mall shops, they'll never know you're carrying.

    Like someone in the post office isn't going to "go postal?"

    Just another irony.

    I hear you, but I'm personally not willing to risk it. It's a felony. Plus, someone's always coming out with more and more intrusive ways of invading our privacy. I've seen a demonstration of a scanner that can see a gun through clothing. I haven't seen it used anywhere, but the tech exists, and I surely don't want to be a victim of any nasty surprises.

    We're the world's leader and laboratory. We all know there's a Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms (RKBA). We're developing the best way to administrate the RKBA, which we necessarily though tacitly and perhaps subconsciously believe, is something that comes with the DNA, or from the Maker, or from both.

    Posted on Mar 8, 2012 | 12:34 PM
    Iíve flown in, and out, of Ben Gurion. We flew from SLC to ATL, and out of ATL to Tel Aviv. After arriving at ATL, and going through all the standard security, we had to go through another security station that was set up right before our gate, manned by Ben Gurionís own security staff. They were easily the most strict security screeners Iíve ever seen. I brought some food that I had just purchased while walking through the airport, and they actually opened my container and checked in and under the food inside it. The day we flew into Tel Aviv, there had been a suicide bombing in the city, so they were understandably cautious.

    Actually I think he was referring to either implanted explosives, which wouldnít show up on any external scan, or explosives just molded to look like your body. The scanners apparently donít see much difference between a potbelly and a bunch of explosives molded to look like one.

    As a private peaceable and law abiding citizen, if I want to exercise my inherent human civil right to bear arms, I can't generally tote around a gun in full or partial view of everybody.

    Nationwide CCW reciprocity means that, if in your home state, you are authorized to CCW, then you're authorized to CCW in all the states, just like wrt drivers licenses, you are authorized to drive a car in all states.
