I applied for my C.C.W. license yesterday afternoon.I had to go to classes,
a firing range,pass tests,back ground check...Everyone who has this license
knows what I'm talking about.

I went to the store this morning to buy postage stamps.I asked the manager
what was their store policy on carry-concealed?When she realized what I meant,
I thought she would faint on the spot.I assured her my weapon was at home
locked up,I didn't have it on me,or in my car.

She calmed down a little and stammered when trying to answer my question.
She didn't know what their policy was,she would have to ask their HR dept..
I was really taken back by her fear of just having a question asked about guns.
The fear this woman displayed opened my eyes.This type of fear is what
leads to gun control and gun ownership restrictions.

These people would only feel safe if guns were in the hands of the police or military.They would take away the guns of, law abiding citizens,not knowing
the criminals would still be armed.I wonder how many of their customers could
pass the same back ground check?I wonder what people will give up to feel
they are safe?

Pretty sure a post office being a federal building means you cant take it in there with you.

On the other hand concealed is concealed so unless youre doing jumping jacks in the office I wouldnt worry about it. Lord knows enough of those postal workers are flipping out in there to warrant you wanting that bit of protection.

I dont get this inherent fear some people have of a chunk of metal. It's like snakes or spiders or something with these morons.

Fortunately I dont run into that attitude where I am. Sometimes it creeps up when all the Massies are here from Taxachusettes on their Summer vacations but the rest of the year it's gun-lovin' free-packin' Namsha.

I guess that the people that are willing to drink the kool aid would be willing to surrender all their freedoms just to feel protected. It is a sad state of affairs when the common man is scared for someone to excerise a fundamental right,such as the right to go armed.
Isn't it strange how twisted politically correctness is. You can't voice concerns about islamic fundamentalists,but you can promote the squashing of gun owners rights. Call them gun nuts,potential home grown terrorists and the like.

Let them give up their rights,just don't try to take my rights away!!!!

It was a grocery store! Any federal building is a no carry zone!
