RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I have owned and carried (with a license) a gun for many years and commute between three states each month. I do not display it and most of my employees do not even know I carry. It is for protection of both me, my staff and on the road any potential threat. Often I camp out en-route in the summer as I have little time "off" and enjoy camping. I also have it at my bedside when home. My wife and all relatives in and around the home have been trained in the safe use of it. I have never had the need to use it and hope I don't. I also take a refresher class every three of four years to keep up on the legal requirements. Although I hope I never need to use it, if the situation arises, I hope I can reduce any potential injuries or loss of life BY using it.
Look at Mexico to see that gun control does not work. I also spend a lot of time there (without a gun) and the only people there that have guns are the people you NEED to worry about.
I am for registration and a three to five day waiting period for handguns. I'm also a avid NPR listener!
Keep up the good work.
