Caching with weapons in General geocaching topics Posted July 20, 2002 You say you respect my views, KD??? quote: I wish we all could go back to your world What world is that? Earth? Last time I checked, we are all up in it! quote: blissfully relying on someone else to do your dirty work for you. quote: It is a matter of responsibility really. Some people take responsibility for themselves, including their own safety. Some people prefer to let others do that work for them. In all of these quotes, does it sound like you are respecting my views? You act like I need to seek a person like you in order to enlighten me in feeling safe with a gun. I have held a gun, and I'm not afraid of someone who owns one. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT A GUN BELONGS IN A CHILD'S HOME. PERIOD. I have lost friends to guns. I have friends whose kids watched their father get blown away in his own home, and why? Because he owned a gun and was reaching for it when he was shot in the chest. DOA! I often wonder...what if he didn't reach for that gun? The robbery was planned by mutual acquaintances and I can assure you, the plan was not murder. The perpetrator wanted their money. He should have just given it to him instead of taking the law into his own hands. Simple as that. I take mine and my family's safety very serious. I don't need a gun to do it. quote:This thread has gone WAAAAYY beyond the scope of Geo-Caching and I won't add any more to it here Practice what you preach. Would I carry a Gun while going caching? No. Would I want to go caching with someone who carried one? No. Take no offense, KD, that we are way different. That's what makes the world go 'round! As far as you and I getting along, well....that could be another topic, now couldn't it? LOL I'm sure you're one heck of a guy. Peace!!!!! Candie from Upinyachit Our feet go where the caches are!
