I've attended a private home Tea party and have been to two 912 meetings. At first, I almost ran. I was thinking I ran into ALL repubicans (OH NO).

This is a thread post and reply on PAFOA relating to when/where to carry your firearm
(I will attach the link at the bottom if you are interested in the whole thread). It began as a question if folks carried while doing yard work. It has slowly morphed into the question "when do you carry". The poster named Slingslot made the following observation about his/her cell phone:
I may have to rethink my carry times. You guys (and Gals) got me thinking about carrying around the… Continue

"License, or the abuse of liberty, may creep into a press which enjoys liberty. Anti-social practices complained of in England and the United States include sensationalism, coloring or distorting the news, propagandizing in the news columns, 'trial' by the newspaper of accused persons, triviality in the news, and 'lying' or falsification, especially in politics."
