Maybe it's time for politics and conscience to move on. It's 2012.
Out of interest, those who have firearms, what are you 'packing'? handguns, rifles, shotguns?
lulz, I disagree there. the primacy of the individual conscience is as close as you can come to everlasting truth for me, and "moving on" from that is a profound regression. it's also how terrible **** happens. there's a reason the Swiss mandate gun ownership.
I personally don't own a gun, but I plan on doing so someday when I have a family. I live in Texas and people generally assume I have one anyway.
