    I live in the most liberal city in Texas and I go to the local community college. I have a teacher for Sociology who is from California. She had an immigrant Mexican mother and an immigrant Philipino(sp?) father.

    Anyways, since quite a few of the people in our class are Criminal Justice majors, she decided we'd go into crime a little. She started out right here:

    "Who here frequents Wal-Mart?" (she raises her hand, as well as 1 or 2 others in class)

    "You know, I had a bit of culture shock when I first went into a Wal-Mart in Texas. I went to the Sporting Goods section and... they.. they actually sell rifles!" (i just started laughing/shaking my head.. in my head)

    A few minutes of dumb hunting discussion went on and our teacher said something like, "I took a self defense class, and I know how to use a gun, so I can protect myself... but I don't own a gun.":scrutiny:

    In front of me there was a discussion (between a black male and white female) about having a shotgun on the dashboard of your vehicle.

    BM: "Did you know you could drive around with a shotgun on your dashboard and the cops can't do anything about it?" (edit: implying it couldnt be on the floor...)
    WF: "Yeah, but you have to have a license."
    BM: "Yeah."


    Education is essential..

    With a minor thread hijack, I just wanted to comment on wally world.

    As I start my quest to add a long gun to the inventory (other than a Remington 41 .22, and HR 88 20gauge) I called my local wally world about a persuader ... they 'stopped selling that type of gun' (scary looking black guns, I guess)

    Finally decided that budget will allow a shotgun over a semi-auto rifle, so I'm trying to decide between a Mossberg 500 persuader (less expensive) and the Remington 870, either in the 18" express, or the 20 gauge youth model.

    Price is a very high ranking criteria.

    I don't think that is an Austin thing at all. Before I moved to Austin I dealt with the same thing at Rice in Houston. Students from other states just about lost their minds when they found out you could carry a rifle or shotgun down the street. Not to mention a concealed HANDGUN!

    One guy was dating this diehard liberal who said, "Why do you need a gun, that is what the police are for." The response... "Not everyone lives in a gated community with a 1 minute police response time, honey."

    sigh... the stupidity of people, when it comes to guns, never ceases to amaze me.
