I thought that I would share this with you guys as I got a nice chuckle out of this at work.

We were having one of our office meetings to go over the new employee handbook. The bosses wife looks at me somewhat a catty manner says this goes to 45R. (As she has problems with my Benchmade 750 and is somewhat Anti-Gun)

"Unauthorized possession, use or sale of weapons, firearms or explosives on work premises is forbibben, in accordance with state and local laws. Violations of this policy will result in disciplinary action, up to and including discharge"

I got a good chuckle due to the fact that its almost impossible to get CCW were I am located. If I was CCW it wouldnt be any of her business and I have consent from the boss that I can bring my firearms onto the work premise if I am going shooting afterwork as long as all firearms are stored in accordinace with CA law. There have been many times after work were the boss has asked me about proper handling of firearms when he knows that I am going shooting after work.

I said "Well you might want to talk to you husband about that one" and 45Boo said.....we dont have a CCW regardless but it says nothing about LAWFUL OPEN CARRY. (She just finished reading the HSC booklet the weekend before) So this says that we still carry to work but have it open. :)

I couldnt stop laughing. I was almost in tears!!!


The sheeples eyes got huge and decided that she didnt know enough about the subject to continue......so she moved to the next paragraph.

I got into an arguement the other day with a co-worker about something similar. He is very liberal, so much so, that I openly detest most of his philosophy as 'communist' and consider/call him 'my comrade.' He has this half-brained idea worked out in his head about how guns should be in a repository and checked out by the owner and returned at the end of the day. His whole idea was ludicrous.

I asked him how this didn't infringe on the Second Amendment and he was like a deer in the headlights. I then, best I could, paraphrased the Second Amendment to refresh his memory. He stated that my whole interpretation was wrong, assuming he even knew how the Amendment actually reads. So, upon his suggestion, we Google'd the exact wording from a Cornell website and I read it to him, again stating: that he and his "communist ways" were trampling on the rights of Americans. He stated, and I quote: "That can't be the Second Amendment, it's too short!" After I picked myself up off the floor and regained my composure, I stated that maybe we should search for the "Unabridged Liberal version of the Second Amendment" that he could (mis)construe to help further his half-brained communistic liberal ideas.

Of course, his next arguement was that I was supposed to be in the National Guard/Militia...Where do these people come up with this stuff?

:scrutiny:

- pause for effect -

"and so are you." :neener:

Watch him turn purple.

He didn't have time to read the book, so he rented the movie one week end, right?

Yep. Its called the Militia Act of 1792.

Dont tell your anti friend that, because he will read until the part about "Alll able-bodied white men..." and stop. He will then accuse you of being racist.:rolleyes:

Actually, now it's in Volume 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations. It replaced the Militia Act (there might have been a couple of revisions in between); that's why we no longer have to muster annually and show that we're properly equipped with modern, military weapons.

Darn the bad luck. :evil:

A Story from Behind Enemy Lines:

Not 30 minutes ago, I was talking with my roomate in the kitchen - I asked her if she will stay in CA for a long time (recent Stanford grad). She said that she is staying around here because her friends are here, but being a teacher, she cannot afford to live in the tres cher Bay Area over the long term.... she then turned my question around. Will I stay?

I hestitated, and began tracing my oblique path to my point: I explained I hated the idea of the government (local or federal) telling me how I can live my life. After a bit, I mentioned that, for example, California's government restricts people from owning 'a certain type of rifle' (was thinkin AR-15) and how crazy is it... - /she interrupts - "oh I agree with restricting things that can kill people".

/needle slides off record

I then shifted gears for a minute to a non-gun related examples of fascism in government (including local), but returned with my real pet peeve - the failure to be able to get CCW permits in CA.

I gave a couple examples of how CCW works against crime, and how there was a study that crime dropped significantly after 2-3 years when a shift to CCW issuance was made in a region. The criminals fear that a 'good guy' might be packing and the CCW makes possible - for example - stopping the suicide/murderer who starts shooting people randomly at the mall.

At this point, one of my other roomates wandered in and was like, 'wow'...

But my roomate was getting impatient and said "the US has the highest incidence of gun deaths of any county" and I knew it at that moment - she's probably seen that Michael Moore flick.

I mentioned that I had stats to back this up, and she basically ended the 'discussion' saying, and i paraphrased as "you don't want to argue with me right now".

Ouch.

Well, my other roomate is from Japan, and she seems more open minded - maybe she's been spared the un-truth. Maybe she wants to go to the range.

Back when Virginia got its CCW shall issue status, my employer at the time, Navy Federal Credit Union, issued a memo saying no firearms, weapons, blah blah blah would be carried on the premises.

My ownership of guns being well known, it became an issue of conversation at the lunch table.

One of my coworkers said she felt a lot better knowing that there weren't going to be any weapons on premises and that everyone would be safer...

I picked her fork up off her plate and rammed it through the apple on her tray.

She started to yelp at me, but went quiet pretty quickly when informed that a weapon is often what you make of what you have at hand.

:neener: <----Does that tell you what I think of #2s opinions on legal storage of my gear on private property. There is a gentlemans agreement between #1 and I. :D


P.S.

Sven sometimes trying to talk rationally to an anti about gun control is like telling the Borg you will not be assumulated.... :banghead:
