Introduction
Electronics Tech, Linux Geek, Beer Brewer Extraordinaire.

Another thing that you should be aware of, the single most logical fallacy that will engender a sometimes epic reaction is the phrase `begs the question`. There are usually a lot of unproven stances or sheer simple assumptions that have to be true to have `begging the question` have any valid meaning at all. Simply put I will feel the need to destroy not only your assumed position but the positions that you had deemed beyond reproach as well. _petitio petipii_ is one of those triggers to me that make really live up to the comment `stupid people annoy him`. Take it as fair warning one and all.

More and more I find that I must warn people that I am a social libertarian. Which means that I believe government has no reason or rights to interfere with anyones private live. 

1: be civil. You can disagree with me all day long, I enjoy a lively debate and will even admit when I am wrong. However, since this is not real time, you have all the time in the world to compose your responses. If you can not be civil I will infer that neither can you be rational nor logical. I'll give you a warning first, as everyone slips now and then, but if you persist, I have no problems choosing whom I will or wont associate with. I will block you.

2: The occasional animated gif is fine, 6 in a row is abusive spam. Like all spam, I will make the effort so that I don't see it anymore (read unfollow).

*3:* Fill out at least some profile information. If there is nothing there for me to determina anything about you odd are that I will assume that we have no common interest. If I see a Guy Fawkes mask, I'll assume that you have some form of brain damage and do not feel you should be held accountable for your own action.

Hope you don't mind an Alaskan joining in. A different perspective on necessary gear and preparations.

So here is an interesting "well, shit" moment for you.

Several states have passed acts banning Federal gun control laws. So what happens in those states if Federal Concealed Carry Reciprocity is passed? Remember forcing states to allow you to carry is still a form of gun control.

+Jim Cook as stated earlier I think the language of these bills is specific to federal laws that infringe on the right...In other words allowing someone to carry isn't infringing, but limiting them to carrying only a certain way may be.
From what I understand of the federal concealed carry reciprocity law is that all states would honor all concealed carry licenses issued by other states. Would work the same way as a driver's license...instead of having to have a driver's license from every state you into to drive in, you have one that is issued by the state you reside in that is honored by all states.
Where I think their may be some concern would be that different states have different concealed carry laws and there is no accepted standard. With a DL there is a standard set of rules that all states have. Even now with the current reciprocities you have to be knowledgeable of the specific laws of where you can carry and where you can't. For example TX you can't carry in a bar, other states you can. In TX a business has to post a sign with specific verbiage in order to prohibit you from carrying, in other states a simple "no guns" or gun buster can prohibit you.
But who sets the standard? And would that standard conflict with what a state wants to allow or not.

New toy, gas on the left, charcoal on the right. My car is completely hidden behind it.

So with the other choices being `Broken on Delivery` and `Buttfumble` someone should explain to me how Tebow is actually a worse choice. With the selection of truly asinine choices Chip the Dip has made, this one is among the less questionable.

Less than an hour into the day and I'm ready to throw my hands up in disgust at the internet. I have a 13 year old chattering away behind me explaining his views on life the universe and everything using stronger logic than the purported adults I keep bumping into online.
