Well, he was going about it the wrong way, and he could have caused serious harm to someone he didn't intend to.

"I need a gun all the time everywhere" is pure paranoia.
Until you're the victim of an attempted carjacking in the well-lit parking lot of an upscale establishment in a nice part of town on a busy evening. Then it's not so paranoid.

I would like to say Tom's post had me crackin up
Sadly, that was not the intent. I really do have that conversation. That same guy is the one who buys a gun for his wife, who doesn't want to carry one in the first place, won't practice, and won't maintain the weapon. Guess who's going to show her how to use it? Him.

The Lori Klein situation didn't occur in a vacuum. The late middle-age country club crowd frightens me much more than the Call of Duty mall ninja folks.
