Peace Throgh Superior Firepower

Oh how angry this one will make people when it ends up on a T-shirt that I happen to wear. Or the sticker that may end up on my vehilce.
Most certainly will end up on my "bag of tricks" and AR case. May even show up on my bail out bag.

If you desire peace, you have to prepare for war.

It is really sad that in America of all places people are now starting to have issues with gun owners and CCW holders. Somehow I doubt Jefferson, Franklin, Paine and Washington would be pleased about things like the "assault weapons ban"

The weird thing is where I live in Montana, with a few exceptions, it's really no big deal. My CCW permit was renewed in 3 days and it was fairly convenient because I had 2 officers at the sheriff's office vouching for my character and saying "we want him armed".

But I still cannot lawfully carry at the Post Office or at a Bank, or at the University or any school. Even though me with my weapon there may save lives. Beyond that, nobody but me will know I have it unless I need to use it to stop a crime.

I think it's really a major mis-perception of what firearms are, how they can be used defensively, and why it is so very important that those willing and responsible ARE armed. It's like having tens of thousands of free cops!

I have my CCW too and it really pisses me off that I can't carry to school. Ohio is actually pretty good about our gun laws for the most part too, however you are right in that there is a common mis-perception about firearms from people that are not experienced with them. It drives me absolutely insane when I tell someone that I have my CCW and their response is "Oh, I'll be careful not to piss you off!" Because obviously everyone that is interested in guns is automatically unstable and dangerous. Maybe it's my own fault for going to such a liberal college, haha.

I went to the University of Montana. Berkeley of the Northwest, I feel your pain. Though it is very, very hard to find a conservative or even centrist University anymore. In fact I was a sworn peace officer when in college and I could STILL not carry my weapon while attending classes! How screwed up is that!?

They really do confuse just because you can, because you take your defensive art seriously, you must be dangerous and wish harm on others. I think THEY would and that is the only reason they would carry a weapon so the assumption is that's why you do too. I also do not see exactly how my martial art is any different than someone knowing Kung-Fu or Karate to a similar proficiency. Mine just ends fights in an extremely decisive fashion and there are few situations that are beyond me if I am armed, it's very freeing. I do not need to fear anyone or anything.

I've found that people with CCWs are calmer, more rational, slower to anger, and tend to make better decisions overall than the general population. In fact when I was a cop I tended to treat CCW permits as "confirmed good guy" cards.

Maybe someday. I'll probably be re-doing this design in vector soon anyway.

That means decals!
