  1. You can't carry at a soccer game or many other places with or without a permit, get your fact straight Moms.

  2. I don't recall seeing anywhere in the constitution that the right of the people SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED as long as you sign up for and pay for state mandated training and then pay the govt for the privilege to exercise that RIGHT.
    And of course the range owner that gets paid for offering the class is going to spin in favor of keeping that mandated requirement. Dropping the unconstitutional training mandate would just be taking money out of his pocket. Pure revenue motivated statement.

  3. Come on if you break the law with a gun you go to prison.
    Don't tread on everyone else because of the few.

  4. Love to see her response when someone is carrying beside her and she doesn't even know it, then god forbid a maniac shows up shooting people,the guy beside her pulls his gun to shoot the suspect, she will thank him.
