It is scary. I think a neighboorhood watch is a great idea. I wonder if the police department would endorse it. A buglary is bad enough, what scares me is how it can turn into robbery if someone is home. We have Patch to thank for reporting on all this activity. We don't get this breath of coverage in the NT or APP.

Nosy neighbors and barking dogs make for the best community watch from a personal perspective. Firearms don't hurt either.

Did YOU already declare him GUILTY?! As for the laws in Florida vs. NJ, they are VERY different! I was NOT referring to carrying anything on you but I was talking about the Second Amendment!

My whole thread was tongue in cheek to see what comes up. I sort of expected some of this. The second amendment does not override all the constitutional protections that a person has regarding innocent until proven guilty, trial in front of judge and or jury and a fair sentencing if convicted. These ridiculous laws in too many states take all those constitutional protections away when they say that anyone can become judge, jury and executioner because they think they are threatened. The second amendment was never intended to be used that way but the NRA has poured so much money into the pockets of the politicians that they can't afford to vote for any kind of limits on how guns are used. The NRA is even drafting the legislation that the politicians are proposing.
