What is the prevailing attitude about GUNS where you live?

OK we all know that there is a wide range of feeling about this subject. So let's get down to it. What is the prevailing attitude about GUNS where you live?

Here in NC (at least in my part) the general feeling is If you want a gun you should be able to have one. Yes we feel that criminals should be executed also, and NO I know of no-one that would willingly sell a firearm to (a) Criminal (b) underage kid (c) nut case (d) drug-user, seller, etc.

PERMITS: take 3-7 days to get after a exhaustive background check. My county in particular goes overboard on this check. The officers in charge are o.k. about getting the permits in your hands after the red tape.

My neighbors are armed. Many are veteran's of the many "conflicts" the USA seems to keep getting into.

PLACES TO SHOOT: Other than on your own property not many. Because of general disrespect for property and pets the locals have put up fences and No Trespassing Signs. (Uhh Yep Us Too, Dang 4-wheelers)

YOUR TURN: ======>next
