I don't plan on fighting wolf, coyote, or other predator hand to hand. With two legs problems I like options.

I saw a quote that said that gun control advocates believe that the woman that gets raped and murdered in an alley is morally superior to a woman that defends herself with a handgun.

I have my gun and I carry it everywhere I can, especially when riding in the summer time. We don't have much of a problem around here with predators, mostly the only things we have are coyotes and a mountain lion or 2 (they usually run away first anyway). However, rattlesnakes are a real problem and IMHO, the only good rattler is a dead rattler. There are a lot of iffy people in town as well, druggies and illegals. We have pretty much the same laws a Vida where you can carry it in sight and you are okay. You are fortunate that it is only $50 there. Here, with the cost of the class and the cost to the state, I end up with a cost of at least $250. Get your conceal and then carry it on your hip. What if something were to happen and your horse gets away from you? Then you would be stuck out there with no gun.

I'd like to take the idiot that came up with that behind the woodshed and show them a little "moral superiority"!

It was a pro gun person that was making a point about the anti-gun crowd.

Well, if this is the argument that anti gun is taking to further their arguments for gun control it is the lamest I've heard yet!

We all know that the law abiding citizens are not the issue. And if any predator came near me....well let's just say I'll save the taxpayers from the expense of a trial!

Okay, blood pressure is back down to normal...let's continue with the original topic, sorry for the side rant.

We've used guns as noise makers to scare grizzlys off while fishing in alaska. I carry one often when riding in remote areas. But I'm not too worried about needing if for animals. Although I wouldn't hesitate to fire it. But unless I was seriously threatened I wouldn't fire to harm but rather to scare.

I have had horses get hurt and die in the back country. It's no fun to cut a horses throat with a knife because he needs to be put down. You only need a permit if you concel the weapon. It's bad enough to have to take your saddle and cut the brand off your old friend when they go down. Utah allows you to carry pistols out in the open with out a permit. I just put a holster on my belt.

The law was changed about carrying guns in national parks like Yellowstone. But I don't think it has taken effect yet. I know congress passed the law, but the liberals got a time delay, I think it goes into effect this year. I know I was suprised last summer in Yellowstone, I had heard about the new law, but the rangers promptly straighten out my understanding that I couldn't carry a gun last summer in the park.
