    What's the penalty for placing a conspicuous sticker at the entrance of every building you enter stating "you may exercise your 2a rights here"? What would the left do? They would make this unenforceable by placing "carry allowed here" stickers EVERYWHERE. That way it's fairly impossible to argue anyone carrying in to the building is knowingly improperly doing it. Seems like a great way to let a 1a activity protect the 2a.

    I like this idea!

    Shades of the “I did that” gas campaign…

    It was amazing to listen to the old couple's daughter, who wants to talk to the guy who assaulted and robbed her parents, "understand" why he did this, and help him get a job so he doesn't have to beat and rob old people.

    She seems ignorant of the fact that this is, in fact, his job.

    Her parents must be proud to learn that their beating would inspire their daughter to turn their other cheek, so to speak. What a saint!

    This is an example of how quickly and out of nowhere you can be assaulted. hmmm, maybe residents of MoCo need to be able to defend themselves.

    I’m thinking it’d be no different than graffiti - criminal mischief or vandalism.

    I realize that what just happened was inevitable.
    From my little view of the fiasco, the DC metro area has good amount of overpaid workers that live in apts, townhouses and really big houses on really small pieces of land. For the most part, They have nothing to do once they leave work except to piss and moan about what they don’t like about their neighbors behavior.
    And we wonder why the general public is so fed up the our political system. It kills me to know that my tax dollars are going to be wasted because of absolute ignorance.

    Thx for listening.
    If the general public were truly fed up we would see some change happening. Again, from my little world, we see acceptance as the easiest path. Yea, little Johnny is failing but give him a gold star anyway, yea we know its not illegal but its our policy, we cant let legal gun ownership happen because thats where the criminals get their guns, we can’t prosecute the criminals because that might look bad, etc.
