If you want to carry a gun to protect american rights, consider enlisting in the armed forces or joining a police force. If you are worried about your rights, the horse has left the barn. My phone is tapped this correspondence goes through a government filter, I practically have to have a rectal exam to fly on a plane and you are worried about your handgun? You're gonna try to overthrow the government with small arms? If want to bear arms take off your shirt.
