A little paranois is healthy. Where is the line? I told my wife last night, that if I'm anywhere and sombody jumps up and starts yelling "G-d is great" in English or Arabic, they're going to get double-tapped and I'll deal with the consequences later. Later this afternoon is my 8 year olds first BSA event of the season. A hundred or so little kids and a couple of adults. I've already started giving serious consideration to moving my backup gun from a pocket revolver, to a second 1911 in an IWB holster (It's getting to be coat weather here in PA, I could conceal a shorty AR if I needed to). And for this outdoor event, I'm thinking I should have an AR15 in the truck, easily accessible, with a half-dozen 30 rounders (that's what those 6 pockets on the case are for, right) ready to go. My wife runs 63 GSA troops in this area; some of those little girls are now missing parents (a large percentage of my neighbors commute into NYC for work. That's what I did when I first moved here). I'm sure that the Boy Scouts are in the same position. I don't want to see any kids hurt. My feelings on this whole thing are likely skewed by the fact that I was supposed to be at the WTC on the 11th,resenting at a technology briefing (and scheduled to talk at 10:45). A timing conflict resulted in me not being able to attend. anyway... Am I just getting carried away?

I dunno Paul, I have never been somewhere where someone just jumps up and starts yelling "God is great!" Guess I don't go to enough Islamic functions. If someone just started doing that I would have to think bad things were just about to happen and I would at least acquire a sight picture. No paranoia there, DavidC.

Frank - My wife normally makes some smart ass comment if she walks into my office and I'm doing something gun related. Last night I was loading up mags for my FAL, with the rifle leaning against the safe behind me. She didn't even comment on it.
