Did anyone else notice the Pres. and others praising the passengers of Flight 93 as "Citizen Soldiers?" Isn't there another word for that term? Hmmmm....what is it, no? Oh yea, Militia. Do you think they are finally getting it? Na, me neither.

No, they don't grok. If I carry a weapon illegally and am forced to defend my life, I probably won't be charged (or at least not convicted), given the circumstances. If I carry illegally and get searched for some other reason, I will get arrested and probably sent to jail. What really sucks is that the two cases above would be treated so differently based on [b]external forces beyond my control[/b], which occurred after my decision to carry. In the second case, I would be penalized because somebody didn't try to kill me. Similarly, even the liberals do a good job of praising heroism like that shown on Flight 93, but they are paralyzed in fear by the thought of me having a pocketknife on the plane.

Of course...look at their clamor of that photo from the LA riots. (Korean storeowners with TEC9 / KG99's). They never fired a shot, and their store remained standing, and open, during the rioting. Funny how the evil guns didn't just start shooting the owner's family and friends on their own...isn't that what happens when one of "those" guns is around? Tango7

They weren't soldiers. Soldiers are armed.

Don't know about you, but I'm armed whether I'm carrying weapons or not.
