    And I closed bars down for 2 straight years after my divorce!

    I think I'm blessed.

    Didn't seem that dangerous when I started. And no, I won't work on the Borth side anymore. Just too many crackheads and heroine zombies. Sometime the effort to provide for your family takes you to undesirable places. Sometimes the undesirables leave their nest and seek an easy buck.

    At any rate, experience has taught me things can go bad quick.

    Carry daily. Concealed means concealed. Most of my customers dont notice, but if they do I politely point out that I work by myself, in a insecured work enviroment with thousands of dollars worth of tools with me at all times which enable me to feed my family. Even the anti gunners seem to agree with me at that point.

    in Michigan you can be denied a pistol license if you get caught peeing in the woods.

    Much like all landscapers claim to be licensed and insured, gun owners talk high and mighty too.
    That is why anytime I see a pistol, I call the police.
    Oh, they get there quick, someone carrying a pistol puts me in fear for my life.
    As for all the big bravo bull macho talk?
    They can explain it to the cops.

    You'd be surprised how many are not licensed at all.

    Your gun phobia is not healthy.

    that really doesn't make any sense. the people that allow you to see then carrying a pistol are the ones that would use that pistol to save YOUR life. the criminals hide them.

    if you want to fear some one fear the criminals. not the law abiding citizens. or better yet the real enemy. politicians. do you know with the patriot act and the ndaa you no longer have your 3rd 4th and 5th amendment rights? and some are using it to take away 1st amendment rights. although carefully read it does not specifically state the last. but that is still the result.

    I would suggest you actually read the constitution and bill of rights and learn why we have the right to bare arms. it's NOT so we can protect our selves from criminals

    You are so full of BS it is pathetic. You have no clue about any of this. You don't like guns, fine, but don't come onto a public forum and post BS that you can't back up with proof. How do you know who is licensed and who isn't? Maybe someone should call the cops or DOT every time they see you pull up to a job with your mower (if you actuallly own one). They have no way to know if you are licensed and insured any more than you do when you see someone with a gun (just how many times has that actually been truthfully:rolleyes:).You can have a sign on your truck door that says you are, but that doesn't prove anything. No, they should call just because you could be some mugger or rapist, is that it? Great logic
