    Confederate, sometimes webpages get "lost" for various reasons, so it's a good idea to quote the content here for posterity.

    That's a good, well written and rational piece. But it won't matter because liberals don't think, they feel. And they don't learn anything when their feelings are clearly proven wrong, they just want to extend their policies when the current ones are useless for what they sought to accomplish.

    Well, if that is the case then we will have people who choose not to be armed under that streetlight corner and they will be a victim for it.

    I have met people in places who have no value to your life only what they can harvest or get out of you alive or dead. Some of these people only comprehend sufficient force of a destructive nature that will enable them to commit crimes or get them hurt bad or killed when picking the armed carry who looked like a easy mark.

    That letter applies today as it did back in 1981.

    My former home on the east coast 15 years ago had no crime to speak of. A little domestic, gas run away, bums shop lifting etc.

    Now occasionally once a month or more that town gets a stabbing, a murder or shooting. That state laws regarding carry are much more draconian than the one I live under now. I dont live on the east coast, I live more than a thousand miles away in a place where much of the old big city crime and such stays in Little Rock and Little Rock is a hell of a good distance from us, too far to walk and too easy to get lost on the small roads in our area for the bad guys in that City.

    That does not stop the bad guys from being bad guys now.

    How many more victims must learn that they too have a Consitutional Right to Bear Arms and defend thier own life, family and home?


    But I say this. The ONE thing I am deeply convinced that does NOT change is this:

    The day time City worker flees to the suburbs or beyond in the afternoon at quitting time. That Day worker KNOWS his or her CITY will become a place of violence, sirens, emotions, death and injury after sunset.

    But after a life time of traveling in all the towns, cities of the USA and Mexico/Canada while trucking, I am absolutely convinced that we are making the best of a peaceful living with what little we have.

    There are places where your life is forfeit and there are places to go where you can find peace and call home. Might be a armed peace but a good one.

    I have also seen towns where the people are armed but very generous and absolutely first class in everything related to running said town, industry, commerce and nightlife. Those are the places I would like to revisit someday.

    Interesting read, but factually inaccurate in a number of instances. One example:

    Having lived in LA County from 1991-2001, I will readily dispute this. Of course, he is talking 1978, which was before my time. I could give other examples, but I won't bother.

    As I said, good read overall, and worth forwarding to others.
