    Since its unconfirmed, its difficult to say. But I know something similar has happened. They don't want to admit, but quietly they have been looking at protecing themselves.

    good luck

    I like the story but I am having a hard time believing it as well.

    Although I like the story, I'm having a hard time believing it without some kind of confirmation. Sad, but true! :(

    Kind of had me rolling my eyes too. Great story if it's true. It is even great if it isn't true, as it is certainly describes a plausible scenario, but we're setting ourselves up if we try to pass it off as true without any documentation.

    Technically its not a duplicate, so I'll let it run.

    Good story, but I too would like some documentation.

    hmmmm. I'm calling B.S. on this one. I'm an avid gun guy and I've never even seen a GOA sticker on a car - this anti-gunner did?

    BS or not, it's how we should present ourselves to the gun-fearing sheeples. Gentlemen. Knight's in Shining Armor. Just anoher guy or gal defending the safety of those not able to defend themselves. All in a day's work, mam.

    I saw one just last week.

    If it wasn't the first one I've ever seen, it was the second. They aren't as prevalent as NRA stickers, but they do exist.

    Rifleman, how do you know? I'd like to believe it, but the story teller sounds too much like one of us, given the use of jargon and so forth. It could be true, but I'm going to treat that one with scrutiny until I see some sort of verification. If it's not true, and we pass it off as true, that would be damaging.

    It's bogus. Carnaby is right. Sounds like a long-time RKBAer wrote it.

    Also posted on TFL.

    Hey, if it's true...great. If not, just preaching to the choir.

    Whether it's true or not, you can expect to see it posted here and on other gun boards, and to show up in your email, for the next 10 years.

    It does sound a bit orchestrated. Doesn't mean it's not true, but . . .

    I think it is too "Pat." If it is true I would like to see something more official than a post on a gun forum. I would think that the NRA would pick up on this and run with it if it were true.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Bogus.....maybe.
    Truth......maybe.

    However, it is a decent read and MAY come in handy to give to someone who is an anti that has a flash of open mind.

    I know of a couple of folks that may benefit from this.

    Would like to believe it's true, but like most of the rest, I need proof!

    Sounds Like A Hoax

    I just received this in an email from a friend, another gun owner. I came here to see if it was true or not. Here's the email response I had already composed to send to my friend.

    See, with a little revision that could've been an A+ paper.



    We all agree that violent incidents can be traumatic, but one incident might not be enough to do it. I think that very very few people come from the other side without help - a confrontation might do a lot to plant the seed, but what does one do when one perceives "so many" of one thing, and only one exception? Facts notwithstanding, maybe she just got lucky and guns really aren't a good idea for anyone else. Thus, my vote goes for fiction.

    I'd say the story is a hoax due to the fact that it is common knowledge that anti's have no logic and cannot rationalize.

    The reality is that even if such an event was to take place, the anti-gun lady would have called the police on the guy with the CCW. She would explain in an unintelligible and unreasonable manner how the guy with the gun was more dangerous to her than the knife wielding perpetrator who was ready to take her for a ride.

    :D

    I can tell from the way this person talks that they are making stuff up. Not to say this story didn't happen, it probably did happen, it's probably happened many times in fact; just not to the person who wrote this bit. It reads a bit like a Chick tract, doesn't it (aside from being about guns and not christianity)? I wouldn't be surprised to find this in comic-book form left in the waiting room or somewhere like that.

    I liked pax jordana's revision better.
